Supporting H.B Fuller with Environmental and Quality Management Systems

H.B Fuller are a global manufacturer of adhesives for food packaging with a manufacturing plant in Ashton-under-Lyne in Greater Manchester.

They required an external business consultant to assist them with independent auditing and to provide additional capacity to support their transition to the 2015 standards for quality and environmental management and appointed Groundwork Greater Manchester for the job.

Full Compliance Service

Upon appointment, our consultants provided a full compliance service for Health and Safety, Environment and Quality at H.B Fuller.

Our compliance experts translated new and amended legislation into easy to read terms and explained how the changes relate specifically to H.B Fuller’s operation.

We then carried out a transition gap analysis to make sure H.B Fuller’s Quality and Environmental Management systems were ready for their fast approaching ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 audits.

Workshops with the Quality and Environment Manager and the Senior Management Team ensured that system improvements worked in harmony with the company.

And to help the wider workforce understand the refreshed management systems our business consultants delivered in-house training on Internal Auditor and Environmental Awareness.

The Results

Our consultants assisted H.B Fuller in achieving and understanding their compliance status, passing their certification audits and improving awareness on Environment and Quality systems across the workforce.
