Hydratron recognise that in order to be a successful and a forward thinking, conscientious business we must look after not only our clients’ needs but the needs of our staff and that of our environment.
Having obtained ISO 9001 certification many years ago, Hydratron have focused on the benefits of having a structured continual improvement approach and apply the following:
- Well defined and documented procedures improve the consistency of output.
- Quality is constantly measured
- Procedures ensure corrective action is taken whenever defects occur.
- Defect rates decrease
- Defects are caught earlier and are corrected at a lower cost.
- Defining procedures identifies current practices that are obsolete or inefficient.
- Documented procedures are standardised making it easier for employees to follow.
The overriding driver is continual improvement in all areas and this has been further developed to include; health, safety and the environment.
Hydratron were successful in obtaining certification to both ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 in December 2013.
By introducing a standardised approach to risk management we have been able to apply the following:
- Providing our company with assurance that we meet, and will continue to meet, our environmental/health and safety management system commitments and corporate policy requirements.
- Showing our business partners, regulatory agencies, and community that we are environmentally and health and safety responsible.
- Increasing profits through potential process improvements and energy conservation.
- Reducing our environmental liability.
- Verifying our systems for recognising and complying with environmental/health and safety laws and regulations.
- Safety benefits – by reviewing the procedures for controlling significant operations, including a review of emergency preparedness and response procedures.
All of the above means Hydratron recognises the need to manage any risks to our customers and employees and at the same time reducing our impacts on the environment, by maintaining these certifications we will be able to continue to do so.
