The process of certification involves an accredited third-party certification body, such as BSI, assessing an organisation to ascertain that their management systems meet the requirements of one or more recognised standards.
As a leader in environmental monitoring and air quality, Acoem is acutely aware of the seriousness of maintaining high standards across all policies and processes, both internal and external.
Certification by an independent, accredited third party is not negotiable.
As a result of this consistent pursuit of high quality, Acoem Australasia passed its recent BSI Health, Safety and Quality audit (AS/NZS 4801:2001 and ISO 9001:2015) with overwhelmingly positive results.
A clear vision supported by experience
Leading the Health, Safety and Quality audit team for Acoem was Kumar Koujalgi, Acoem Group Quality Manager.
Kumar joined Acoem Australasia in 2018 and has more than 30 years of experience implementing Quality Standards in the aerospace, defence, biomedical and automobile industries. This experience and practical know-how make Kumar ideally placed to champion health, safety and quality across Acoem.
Building on past audit success, Kumar didn’t just want to maintain the status quo; he wanted to capitalise on Acoem’s history of ingenuity and innovation by making the company’s compliance with Health, Safety and Quality standards even more dynamic and efficient.
“I went back and reframed the structure of how we work to implement the standard,” Kumar commented. “We are changing the culture of Health, Safety and Quality at Acoem. We have the right foundations. So, making additional positive change is evolutionary,” he added.
High quality every step of the way
As you would expect from any world-class manufacturing team, continuous improvement is relentless and ongoing.
Under Kumar’s stewardship, Acoem is also taking the time to review, revise and implement enhanced systems and processes in manufacturing. Ensuring the highest level of quality is maintained from start to finish on every Acoem manufactured product is always top of mind.
The actions that Kumar and the manufacturing team at Acoem Australasia have taken to not only meet but surpass the AS/NZS 4801:2001 and ISO 9001:2015 audit standards help demonstrate the professional pride we take in the quality of Acoem products, systems and processes to serve our customers.
