Article date: 03/02/2015
UK based Evacusafe is a company that has become synonymous with supreme quality and customer confidence in the evacuation chair industry. Today the Company has announced their recent achievement of the ISO 9001:2008 award, for the seventh year in a row.
ISO is a nationally recognised award for outstanding standards and commitment. In order to achieve this award the Company was independently assessed by the leading Certification Body, the British Assessment Bureau. This award demonstrates Evacusafe’s commitment to customer service and quality in delivery.
ISO 9001 was first introduced in 1987 and requires organisations to demonstrate that they do what they say they do and that they have a quality management system in place to ensure consistency and improvement; leading to high levels of performance and customer satisfaction. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.
The process encompasses the entire organisation and requires senior management buy-in, it is not just a function of the Quality Department. To achieve ISO 9001 an organisation needs to demonstrate that it can meet the regulatory requirements and apply the system effectively to be of real benefit its customers.
The benefits of registration to ISO9001 standard include:
- Streamlining an organisation’s procedures
- Bringing consistency to an organisation’s service delivery
- Reducing cost and rework
- Improving an organisation’s management practices
- Enhanced status
- Competitive advantage
- Lower insurance premiums
Don Lovatt, Training and Compliance Manager for Evacusafe, said “We are particularly pleased to have achieved ISO9001 certification for the 7th year as it underlines our commitment to our customers and our focus on quality. Not many customers get to see their suppliers’ ‘back-office’ activities. This recognition demonstrates we can provide a trusted, quality solution from quotation to delivery.”
Once again Evacusafe has earned the right to display the coveted British Assessment Bureau ISO 9001 certification mark to demonstrate its conformance to the standard.Tweet
