This week I was fortunate enough to attend a conference on the new ISO45000, the replacement for OHSAS18000. This was due last year and the latest advice is it will be launched at the end of 2017 with a 3 year conversion period.
3dotdash has already anticipated the use of Annex SL for all management standards and our Clients have documentation that complies with format.

Updates to vrm365

There has been a major re-vamp of the vrm365 web design. The Knowledge Library has a new layout which is fully mobile responsive. This means the content can be easily viewed on mobile phones and tablets, allowing you access to the latest up-to-date information wherever you are.

The Document Library for subscribers has been relocated from Dropbox. There is now a single page containing all the downloads for Forms & Templates in addition to the links in the relevant sections of the Knowledge Library. So if you know the document you require, just go to the Library.

Coming Soon - For 3dotdash Clients - Your own dedicated web page providing seamless access to your documents. This will be set up at your next visit.
