Schade achieves ISO accreditation

Published by
World Cement,

Schade Lagertechnik has achieved ISO accreditation for quality management and environmental management, as well as OHSAS 18001 accreditation for occupational health and safety. The accreditations complete the company’s transition to the 2015 ISO standards.

“Successful and comprehensive accreditation under the most recent national and international ISO standards is a significant achievement for Schade,” said the company’s Quality Management Officer, Guido Stratenhoff. “International customers expect and respect impeccable management systems for quality control, environmental protection, health and safety.”

The ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard stipulates the minimum requirements for a quality management system (QMS) that a company must implement in order to fulfil the requirements of the customers and the quality of its products and services.

By implementing a QMS, companies, such as Schade, increase the transparency of internal processes, enhance customer satisfaction, and reduce the frequency of errors, thus lowering costs.

ISO 14001 focuses on continuous improvement processes as a means of achieving a company’s environmental management objectives. This requires the company to define its environmental protection strategy and prepare a management system to meet these aims.

Although only officially recognised in the UK and Poland, OHSAS 18001 is structured similarly to the ISO 9001 and 14001 standards and is informally used in many other countries – including Germany – as the basis for accreditation in occupational health management systems.
