Friday, 18 March 2011 00:00
Kemtron, the British manufacturer of EMC shielding and environmental sealing solutions, has achieved accreditation through the British Standards Institute (BSI) to ISO 14001, the international standard for Environmental Management Systems, and OHSAS 18001, the standard for Occupational Health and Safety.
The OHSAS specification sets out the requirements for an occupational health and safety management system, to enable an organisation to control its OH&S risks and improve its performance. ISO 14001 specifies a process for controlling and improving a company's environmental performance.
Managing Director David Wall said, “We are delighted to have achieved accreditation to these internationally-recognised management systems. Quality has been a priority for Kemtron since 1988 when we achieved accreditation to BS5750 the predecessor to ISO9001. We document all of our processes and operate a policy of continuous improvement for customers, employees and the environment. Accreditation to these two demanding standards takes our commitment to a new level and reinforces our position as a world-class supplier.”
“Our customers can feel confident that Kemtron solutions, which are designed and manufactured in Britain, meet requirements for quality, sustainability and responsibility in the workplace,” he added. “And it’s a tribute to our employees who have worked so hard to reach and maintain the demanding standards.”
Kemtron, an ISO 9001 accredited organisation, developed and implemented the integrated management system in house over a 12 month period, building on measures and quality management processes already in place. The prestigious award came after an in-depth assessment by BSI Inspectors in which they examined every aspect of Kemtron’ s policy and systems for environmental and occupational health and safety issues.
