Risk management is a high priority at NIS and risk assessments are carried out at various stages of the project lifecycle. NIS have NEBOSH qualified staff who carry out risk assessments and ensure measures are put in place to mitigate against, and control, risks arising.
NIS are totally committed to the care of the environment and this goal is achieved at all levels through the operation of an integrated management system which is appropriate to the nature, scale and environmental impact of our activities, our products and services, in line with BS EN ISO 14001:2004. It is maintained by a series of internal audits, management review and independent external audits.
