QA Weld Tech is delighted to confirm that we have successfully secured a world leading quality standard and have been awarded with ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 accreditations. And, to our knowledge, we are the first company in Teesside to secure this accreditation.
The hard work and commitment from both staff and our company as a whole has meant that we have managed to achieve the accreditation in only a matter of four months. Companies across the UK have been given up to three years to secure the rigorous standard – the 9001:2015 – which was only published in September 2015.
The standard – which is the toughest to date – means firms across the country have to implement systems that ensure all work processes, risks and opportunities, methods of work and management planning is documented and, key to this, is that all employees have to understand them.
For QA Weld Tech, this involved a full revamp of its management systems combined with the training of all staff across its Middlesbrough site.
This achievement will play a vital role in helping QA Weld Tech to stay at the forefront of the industry and to win work for the region and, most importantly, support the employment of people across Teesside.
