16 Feb ISO Accreditation
Passive Fire NZ achieves ISO Certification in 3 standards, Quality ISO 9001, Health & Safety ISO 45001 & Environmental ISO 14001.
Passive Fire NZ are proud to announce we have achieved our goal to become ISO certified in the following three ISO standards;
- Quality ISO 9001
- Health & Safety ISO 45001
- Environmental ISO 14001
These certifications demonstrate Passive Fire NZ’s commitment to high quality processes, the health & safety of our team and all they interact with, and a focus on sustainable business practices.
Our whole team at PFNZ worked hard on all aspects of our management system to achieve these certifications, and to give our clients extra confidence in our ability to deliver our services at a consistently high standard.
Our management system has been assessed and certified by New Zealand’s most recognised and longest established certification body, Telarc. To maintain customer confidence in PFNZ’s effectiveness, Telarc regularly reviews our management system for compliance to standards.
What is ISO?
ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organisation. Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based International Standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.
What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 assesses our IMS (Integrated Management System). It provides a framework in which we continually monitor and improve our quality processes to achieve organisational excellence.
Implementing ISO 9001 helps us gain efficiencies, improve decision making and process control, with a focus on customers, leadership, relationship management and other vital aspects of successful business.
What is ISO 45001?
ISO 45001 Health and Safety provides assurance that our occupational health and safety management system meets top international standards.
Implementing ISO 45001 creates better, safer work conditions leading to improved employee wellbeing and morale. This aids regulatory compliance, while reducing lost time and the risk of accident-related incidents and litigation.
What is ISO 14001?
Gaining ISO 14001 environmental certification requires an organisation to do the right thing and constantly improve practices and control measures to deliver services as sustainably as possible.
What did we do to achieve ISO certifications?
To achieve ISO certification, we underwent a thorough evaluation process. This process included a review of all of our information management systems, several pre-audits, the provision of a number of audit artefacts, and the cooperation of PFNZ employees in all roles for the auditor to objectively assess our effectiveness.
What does this mean for PFNZ?
ISO certification adds an extra layer of credibility to the excellent work we do for current and future clients alike. Our commitment to this regular review of our system means we value consistency, high standards and continuous improvement.
As an organisation, we must maintain this certification annually which means there will be more work and improvement to come. For every new project we take on, we continue improving our processes and holding ourselves accountable to the high standards of ISO certification.
