Peikko Group has started to use revised ISO 9001:2015 (quality) and ISO 14001:2015 (environment) management system standards. The structure of the revised standards has changed to better support business and leadership. The revision of the quality management system accentuates quality orientated business as a whole. The revision of the environment management system corresponds to the needs of standard users, to increasing environmental challenges, and to social expectations.
Certification body DNV GL performed audits at Peikko’s production units during autumn 2016. Peikko was among the first companies to take the revised standards into use. Peikko Group’s production units in China, Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Slovakia, and the United Arab Emirates are now within EN ISO 9001:2015 and EN ISO 14001:2015 multi-site certification. The Russian production unit is included in the revised multi-site certificate with regard to quality certification, and the environmental certification will be carried out during this year.
Work safety (OHSAS 18001:2007) and welding (ISO 3834-2:2005) certifications are an integral part of Peikko’s multi-site certification. Welding is one of Peikko’s main production processes, and work safety is a one of group wide main focus areas. All management system certificates can be found on Peikko Group’s website at www.peikko.com/QES.
”The certification proves that Peikko Group takes better into consideration the needs and expectations of customers and other stakeholder groups with regard to high quality. Our annual process-specific continuous improvement action plans base on together evaluated risks and possibilities for further improvement our operations and product quality in order to guarantee better customer satisfaction”, states Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
