In a world of side-hustles and self-learning, how do you know you’re working with someone you can trust? One way is to choose companies who comply with the highest standards of quality, environmental and workplace safety management.
That’s why Global Fire is proud to be certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and AS/NZS 4801 standards. But what do each of those mean? And how does accreditation to such standards improve your experience as a customer?
Let’s find out:
ISO 9001 quality management system
What is it? This international standard defines how a company meets the requirements of its customers and stakeholders. Because companies provide different products and services, organisations specify their objectives and show how they are continually improving to reach these. Only companies who demonstrate continual improvement enjoy accreditation.
What does it mean for you? ISO 9001 is all about putting the customer first. So, an accredited company will always be looking to meet and exceed your expectations. As the company needs to show continual improvement, you’ll benefit as a customer through better products and services.
ISO 14001 environmental management system
What is it? ISO 14001 requires certified companies to address all environmental issues that relate to its operations. This could include resource management, waste management and recycling. Again, continual improvement is a must for companies to remain accredited.
What does it mean for you? Simply put, you know you’re working with a responsible operator. Although you may not see what measures the accredited company is taking, you can be sure that they aren’t contributing to environmental issues that affect us all.
AS/NZS 4801 safety management system
What is it? The standard’s primary objective is to reduce workplace injury and illness. One of its key components is the recording, managing and analysing of safety-related data. This means companies can take proactive steps to eliminate accidents and unsafe situations when carrying out their business.
What does it mean for you? It means protection. There’s a reduced risk of incidents while providing you with services. Plus, you get your money’s worth since the company is likely using its funds to offer better service instead of paying off expenses due to accidents. It also indicates the company’s commitment to best practices.
As Henry Ford once said, “Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.” Don’t settle for less than excellence. Only work with the best, those willing to apply the highest standards in everything they do—even when you’re not watching.
