Seven years after initially qualifying as an ISO registered company, 4R Group is delighted to announce that it has recently passed its re-certification audits for ISO 9001:2008 (Quality), ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental) and OHSAS 18001:2007 (Health and Safety) management systems and will continue to operate the business to these high ISO standards.
ISO International Standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality and 4R Group intends to start operating in line with the new ISO 9001:2015 within the next twelve months.
Benefits of the certifications include: widened market potential, compliance to procurement tenders, improved efficiency and cost savings, higher level of customer service, and therefore satisfaction with heightened staff moral and motivation. By having a recognised management standard it tells your customers that you are serious about their needs.
ISO 9001:2008 sets out the criteria for a quality management system. This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, management and staff motivation and continual improvement. Using ISO 9001:2008 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.
The ISO 14001:2004 addresses various aspects of environmental management and enables companies to identify and control their environmental impact and constantly improve their environmental performance.
OHSAS 18001:2007 is an international occupational health and safety management system that helps minimise risk to employees, sub-contractors and members of the public and demonstrates the company’s diligence in its approach to health and safety.
