UKAS Accreditation by Remote Surveillance

Under strict COVID-19 restrictions, Harrison Group has recently undertaken the annual UKAS Accreditation Remote Surveillance Audit for its independent soil testing laboratory. This was carried out with the aid of Teams, OneDrive and WeTransfer and is a first for the company.


Over a period of a month, 15 videos of between five to ten minutes duration were prepared of the procedures.


The feedback received was excellent. Zero non-conformances for testing were recorded and there were no recommendations made for improvement.


Whilst a major effort was needed to produce the video material, it is now also a useful resource for the company, to be used for future training and accreditation purposes.


Well done to Henry Chapman, Matthew Wilson and the laboratory technicians for their hard work in gaining this latest accreditation for the laboratory, which is another example of how Harrison Group is adapting in the current climate to maintain its high standards.
