Stephen Gilmour has been providing a service to customers since 1996 following 11 years with a UKAS Accredited Certification Body, the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) which is now part of the Building Research Establishment (BRE). The LPCB runs Product Certification Schemes for fire protection products and systems for which Quality System Certification is an element. Stephen managed the department responsible for approvals of fire detection and alarm systems and Quality System certification for customer companies. As such Stephen has an in depth knowledge of the fire protection business sector which has continued to be used since setting up SG Quality Engineering with customers who work in this sector.
Since setting up SG Quality Engineering Stephen has developed Quality, Environment and Energy Management Systems for customers who are;
- Service companies
- Fabrication companies
In a number of industries including:
- Fire protection
- Environmental monitoring systems
- Stainless steel fabrication
- Renewable energy systems
- Electrical contracting
Stephen feels that although knowledge of a business sector is useful, it is not always necessary, the principles of Management Systems can be applied to any organisation without a full understanding of their operations.
