QUALITY Guild (QG) is an association of quality-assessed businesses operating throughout London, Lancashire, Sussex, The Borders and the North East.

Established in 1994, QG provides companies with an off-the-shelf quality management system. It is also a means for businesses to manage health and safety training in the workplace.

The standard covers a number of areas, including:

Management responsibilities;

Reviewing customer orders;

Controlling working documents;

Buying goods and services;

Training;

QG assessments.

Being a QG member has a number of benefits which include:

Quality system assessment;

Unlimited access to an advice line provided by Croner Consulting;

Monthly newsletter covering health and safety and employment legislation issues;

Professional back-up service;

Access to discounted seminars and events;

Access to a range of discounted professional services.

As part of the QG package businesses can take advantage of 23 health and safety training programmes available in CD format. Health and safety legislation is constantly being reviewed, and employers and employees need to be trained to perform their roles safely and competently.

In conjunction with health and safety training, QG is jointly holding a number of county-wide events which prepare employees for the implementation of the Regulatory Reform Order on Fire Safety which comes into force on April 1.

Richard Mackay, of WG Mackay, says: “The Quality Guild package of services is an asset to any business, particularly the interactive health and safety training courses.

“These can be completed in-house, minimising the time staff spend away from the job. It must surely be the most cost-effective way of providing staff training.”
