Exciting developments ahead as we extend our UKAS ISO scope
It’s been a busy 12 months since we gained our initial UKAS ISO accreditation, and we anticipate it’s going to stay that way as we continue to grow, developing our suite of training and industrial services and delivering them to an expanding customer base.
As part of this development we are delighted to announce that we have extended our UKAS ISO 9001 & 45001 accreditation.This process means we have increased the scope of our accreditation to include:
The good news for you is that this extension of UKAS ISO 9001 & 45001 means that all of the activities undertaken by SA Safety are now included under our integrated management system.
Accreditation determines the technical competence, reliability and integrity of Conformity Assessment Bodies. It spans all aspects of our every day lives to provide confidence that accredited organisations are competent and can be trusted to deliver promised levels of performance and protection for the products and services we rely on.
What does accreditation mean for our customers?
Extending the scope of our UkAS ISO certification gives you, our customers, the peace of mind of knowing that our quality and health & safety processes are being audited, both internally and externally, to an internationally recognised standard.
The UKAS website tell us that:
“Organisations check conformity and compliance with standards and regulations through testing, verification, inspection and calibration. Through UKAS accreditation test results can be trusted, measurements relied upon, certificated activities respected and inspected equipment and processes can be relied upon to operate safely and accurately”
So you can be sure that all the services provided to your business by us will, through our integrated management system, be consistently compliant with the highest industry standards.
According to UKAS, The provision of accreditation must:
- Be undertaken impartially;
- Be objective, transparent and effective;
- Employ highly competent assessors and technical experts in all fields;
- Use assessors (and subcontractors) proven to be reliable and ethical in their approach to accreditation and their respective technical fields.
Accreditation drives confidence in all sectors by underpinning quality of results, ensuring their traceability, comparability and validity. UKAS accreditation guarantees the highest levels of impartiality and competence through the continuous assessment process.
