As evidence of our continued Commitment to Quality throughout the organization, Injection Works has adopted and recently earned certification to the latest ISO 9001:2015 Quality System standard. International Standards Organization (ISO) 9001:2015 is the most updated standard of its kind and focuses on quality management systems and performance, assisting companies to develop a management system that aligns quality with their wider business strategy. Achieving this latest certification required Injection Works to build upon our 12+ years of established ISO 9000 certification by demonstrating a superior focus on continuous improvement and customer satisfaction through a measurement intensive risk-based methodology, with the final result being a full recertification audit by our registrar, SGS, in May 2018.
A group of five Injection Works team members recently completed a three-day course to become certified as ISO 9001:2008 Internal Quality Systems Auditors. Injection Works now has a total of 7 active, certified auditors on staff. As part of this important training, the instructor explained the clauses of ISO 9001:2008 in detail, and guided our colleagues through internal audits that are required for a quality management system based on ISO 9001:2008. The class included a balance of formal classroom tutorials, practical role-playing, group workshops, and open forum discussions. Our five graduates successfully completed this course, and have received a Certificate of Attainment for the following RABQSA knowledge competency units: QM – Quality Management Systems AU – Management Systems Auditing Class Graduates in the photograph below (from left to right) are Chris Hertell, Nick Martinez, Dennis Frohbergh, Bill White and Ernesto Perez.
