NQA COVID SECURE Guideline Verification

Global certification body NQA has introduced a new service to validate measures taken by organisations in the UK to meet government guidelines for mitigating the transmission of COVID-19.

 

By launching the new service, NQA aims to assure companies, employees and customers that certified organisations have met specific government guidelines after submitting to a review that includes an assessment of control measures which are specific to their sector and activities.

Organisation’s which have been successfully verified will receive a statement of verification and the NQA COVID SECURE Guideline Verification logo to display. Verification includes a risk assessment of control measures that are specific to sectors and activities.

NQA managing director, Nick Wright, explains: “I am pleased to announce the launch of the NQA COVID SECURE Guideline Verification. This third party, independent verification aims to provide reassurance that government guidelines and best practices have been put in place, supporting efforts to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

 

“It is NQA’s organisational purpose to build trust between companies and their customers and launching this service is part of our contribution to help rebuild confidence across the country.”

 

How does a COVID SECURE verification audit work?

During the verification, NQA will assess your organisation’s risk assessment, actions and plans which are related to mitigating the risk of transmission of COVID-19. The verification will be against the most up to date guidance from the government relevant to your organisational activities and sector. The verification will take place for each location you wish verified.

The UK Government’s latest guidance can be found at www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19.

 

Upon successful completion you will receive a statement of verification and our COVID SECURE Guideline Verification logo for display and use on the specific site.
