Jonathan Love Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary with Albion

It is with great pleasure Albion Environmental Ltd are celebrating Jonathan’s 10 years’ service with the company. When Jonathan joined the company in 2008, it comprised of 4 employees with the head office based in rented office space. Through the years Albion has grown steadily moving to its newly refurbished office “Albion House” in 2013. In 2017 an extension was added to increase office space and improve the onsite training facility. We now have a staff of 14.

Jonathan joined the company as an environmental assistant to implement the Environmental Management System ISO 14001 at Levenseat. During his time Jonathan has continued to manage Levenseats environmental management system with the recent successful transition to 2015 standards and now working towards a combined 14001 and Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems ISO 45001:2018 system. John has also managed our Business Management System which is accredited to ISO.

Jonathan holds the following Certificates of Technical Competence: Managing Treatment Non-Hazardous Waste, Managing Landfill Non-Hazardous Waste, Managing Transfer Hazardous and Non-Hazardous Waste, and is currently progressing to Chartered IOSH status.

Key areas of expertise include waste compositional analysis, environmental monitoring and Health, Safety and environmental auditing, compliance and preparation of documents.

It is estimated that Jonathan has managed waste analysis projects sorting through over 300 tonnes of waste. He does grumble about it but secretly he enjoys being the “rubbish expert!!”

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Jonathan for his continued support and loyalty to the company over the years.

Congratulations to the Albion staff, Jonathan Love, Andrew Howlett, Jayne Carson and Grant Wilson who have recently completed transition training in preparation of the change from ISO 9001:2008 moving to ISO 9001:2015.  This will enable our own system to be audited against the new standards which were published in September 2015 and have a three year transition period which will be implemented at the end of September 2018.

ISO 9001 is the standard that sets out the requirements for a quality management system which helps organisations provide an efficient service and improve customer satisfaction.  Further information regarding the updates can be found by following the link ISO 9001 moving from 2008 to 2015

We have a readiness review visit from Bsi planned for April 2017, and hope to complete our own transistion by the summer of 2017, a year ahead of the deadline, allowing us to assist other organisations with their transition requirements.
