The importance of choosing an ISO Certified fire protection team
Some things in life are worth taking a gamble on; a new employee, even a complete rebrand. But when it comes to ensuring your facility is up-to-date with safety standards, there is zero room for error. It’s paramount that you can trust your fire safety solutions team to not only meet, but exceed, Australian Standards to offer you unprecedented protection and peace of mind.
If your expertise doesn’t involve drafting emergency plans or checking fireguard equipment, how can you be sure the installations within your building are safe? How do you know if your fire and safety solutions provider is one of the good guys?
A sure fire way to know you’re working with a reputable company, is to insist they are ISO Certified. For a business to receive ISO Certification, they have had to demonstrate their commitment to international business standards, meaning you’re working with individuals who aren’t just talking the talk; they’re walking the walk. Choosing an ISO certified fire protection team will ensure your premises meets the highest standards of compliance and reliability.
What is ISO Certification?
ISO Certifications are international standard certifications awarded from a third party body that tests company operations to ensure they meet international standards developed and outlined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
The ISO is constantly bringing together experts to ensure the international standards it publishes are keeping pace with the latest innovations, and ensures businesses who undertake its certification implement increased safety measures, build efficiency and productivity, and minimise waste and environmental impact.
What ISO Certification does Fire and Wire have?
Fire and Wire has three ISO Certifications that are outlined within the Integrated Management System, PAS99:2012.
Our ISO Certifications include:
ISO 9001:2015 – This ISO 9001 Certification relates to a Quality Management System (QMS) standard that analyses the processes, resources, assets and cultural values used within an organisation to achieve efficiency and customer satisfaction.
ISO 14001:2015 – This ISO 14001 Certification examines the environmental management system an organisation uses to ensure it is adhering to maximum environmental performance.
ISO 45001:2018 – This ISO 45001 Certification looks at the occupational health and safety (OH&S) standards of a business to ensure it is continually improving its safety practices while adhering to legal requirements.
ISO Certification in action at Fire and Wire
Over two years, the Fire and Wire team achieved three ISO Certifications thanks to the full participation of our entire team.
With a commitment from all departments and personnel, we restructured our systems and processes to ensure they not only met our commercial and client needs, but also met ISO international standards.
Fire and Wire built into the business monthly toolbox meetings, updating documentation, procedures, and reporting, and taking active measures to be more environmentally aware with our waste, energy bills and carbon footprint.
The internal practices we have applied through achieving ISO Certification have embedded a continuous improvement model into our business, ensuring ongoing premier services for our clients and partners.
