NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH, USA – August 23, 2016 – Schill Grounds Management, a groundskeeping and snow removal company serving commercial properties in Northeast Ohio, recently earned SN 9001 quality management system (QMS) certification after an audit by Smithers Quality Assessments (SQA).

Adherence to SN 9001 ensures that snow contractors have the correct documentation in place to protect themselves and their businesses against liability claims. Wanting to eliminate the risk of insufficient documentation, Schill Grounds Management decided it was time to pursue certification through an audit by SQA.

“We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality service and now we can share our SN 9001 certification with our current and prospective clients,” said Jerry Schill, co-owner and president, Schill Grounds Management. “Achieving certification has given us a great deal of confidence in our processes and quality management systems as we prepare for another Northeast Ohio winter.”

Based on the fundamentals of ISO 9001, SN 9001 is designed specifically to benefit the commercial snow and ice management industry. Potential results from certification include reduced insurance premiums, reduced waste involved with slip-and-fall litigation, enhanced supplier-customer satisfaction, more efficient use of labor and increased end-user safety and satisfaction.

With the new certification, Schill is looking forward to a busy, successful season. He plans to add the certification to his promotional materials to let his clients know that he is doing all he can to limit their liability.
