Since opening its first branch in 2012 YESSS has been awarded ISO 9001 for Quality Management, ISO 14001 for Environmental Management and OHSAS 18001 for Health and Safety.
The ISO9001 accreditation addresses various aspects of quality management, ensuring YESSS has the structure in place to ensure its products and services meet the needs of its varied customer base, whilst ISO 14001 demonstrates that YESSS meets rigorous international standards for minimising the company’s impact on the environment. The OHSAS 18001 certification in Occupational Health and Safety Management underlings a commitment to safer working and retail environments.
Andy Singleton, director at YESSS, commented, ‘Achieving these three accreditations reaffirms our commitment to doing things differently. We believe we are the only national UK wholesaler to hold all three and it required a real team effort to achieve the certification. Hopefully we’ve demonstrated that, as a company, we are constantly monitoring and measuring our own performance in order to improve the service we provide to customers.’
