CARES Certification

Midland Steel Reinforcements demonstrate their committment to Quality, the Environment, Health & Safety and Sustainability through a range of CARES Certfication schemes. To view their current certificates visit the downloads section.

Quality & Traceability

Midland Steel has full CARES Product Certification across all depots and all product ranges, ensuring quality and full traceability.

CARES’ certification covers all stages in the supply chain from the processing of raw materials, the manufacture of steel and construction products through to the product installation or delivery to the customer. CARES Product Certification is based on the application of three essential elements:

  • The manufacturers’ management system as defined by BS EN ISO 9001: 2000
  • The full requirements of the relevant product standards
  • The control of the manufacturers process in order that product of a consistent level of compliance will result

Environmental

Midland Steel’s Environmental Management Systems are certified to ISO 14001 by CARES.

An Environmental Management System (EMS) to ISO14001 provides a framework for a structured, systematic approach to the achievement of its aims and objectives. It adopts a ‘common sense’ set of requirements designed to monitor and improve environmental performance, putting in place a basic set of management controls in place within a formalised documented system.

Health & Safety

Midland Steel’s Health and Safety management systems are certified to OHSAS 18001; the highest international Health & Safety certification available. OHSAS 18001 provides a framework for a structured, systematic approach to the achievement of its aims and objectives. Like ISO9001 or ISO14001, it is a ‘common sense’ set of requirements designed to monitor and improve health and safety performance, putting in place a range of management controls within a formalised documented system.

Sustainability

The objective of the CARES Sustainable Reinforcing Steel Certification scheme is to provide independent certification of the environmental performance of steel products. The assessment is based on an environmental management system to ISO 14001 and, in addition, the identification, collection, auditing and reporting to CARES of certain sustainability data. The environmental criteria were developed by a group of industry experts, and cover the entire supply chain from the production of the steel through its processing to the delivery of the finished product to the construction site.
