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 Harrison Group.


Over a period of a month, 15 videos, between 5-10 minutes duration were prepared, of the technical procedures/testing and reporting of results procedures carried out by the laboratory.


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


The video material is also a useful resource for Harrison Group, 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. This is another example of how Harrison Group are adapting in the current climate, to maintain the standards that it aspires to and give clients the reassurance that a high quality service will be delivered by the company.
