Kemtron gains re-certification for international environmental, quality and occupational health standards
Kemtron has completed the triennial re-certification for accreditation through the British Standards Institute (BSI) to ISO 14001:2004, the international standard for Environmental Management Systems, ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management Systems and OHSAS 18001:2007, the standard for Occupational Health and Safety.
- The OHSAS 18001:2007 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 14001:2004 specifies a process for controlling and improving a company’s environmental performance.
- ISO 9001:2008 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
Quality has been a priority for Kemtron since 1988. We operate a policy of continuous improvement for customers, employees and the environment, and accreditation to these demanding standards reinforces our position as a world-class supplier.”
The company is now preparing for the transition to the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 revisions, which were released this year. Kemtron will be assessed to the revised standards in 2016.
The new Occupational Health and Safety standard is due for release in 2016 and will then be known as ISO45001: 2016. Kemtron will upgrade to the new standard in 2017.
