Rawlplug has implemented a management policy aimed at supporting the company in the pursuit of strategic objectives such as healthy business growth, environmental responsibility and sustainability. This policy is implemented within the framework of internationally recognised, standardised management systems.
Quality Management System ISO 9001
By fulfilling the requirements set out by the ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS), Rawlplug commits to creating transparent processes aimed at continuously improving the quality of Rawlplug products, services and operations. Rawlplug’s QMS also provides a framework in which to quickly and effectively identify and resolve any process or production problems that arise. The certification, and its demonstration of our commitment to quality, helps to strengthen Rawlplug’s reputation as a reputable, trustworthy company.
ISO/TS 16949 Technical Specification
Based on ISO 9001, the ISO/TS 16949 technical specification provides a framework for continual improvement by seeking to eliminate defects from the production process and to minimise variation and waste. For Rawlplug, ISO/TS 16949 helps us to further reinforce our emphasis on quality within our production processes, while also helping to improve the efficiency of our use of natural resources. Certification in this area demonstrates our enduring commitment to quality and the absolute confidence we have in our products and processes. For clients, this certification fosters trust in our brand and products while for employees, such certification provides assurances that a job at Rawlplug means working in an environment that rewards professionalism and passion for perfection.
Environment Management System ISO 14001
As a manufacturer of goods used in the construction industry, we at Rawlplug are acutely aware of the impact we as a company have on the natural environment. We seek to act as a responsible member of the community and we treat our relationship with our natural surroundings seriously.
To underline our commitment to the environment, we work hard to ensure our operations and processes are compliant with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements, and also with the ISO 14001 Environment Management Systems (EMS) that we have implemented.
The requirements of our EMS provide us with a formal framework to measure and minimise our impact on the environment and also commit Rawlplug to documenting and continuously improving our processes and their impact on the environment. In this way, our commitment to the environment goes well beyond good intentions and deeds – it is a certifiable commitment on which we stake our reputation.
Health and Safety Management System OHSAS 18001
Occupational Health and Safety Advisory Services (OHSAS) 18001 certification provides a recognised, formal framework to support the ongoing improvement in health and safety at Rawlplug.
We are committed to reducing accidents and occupational hazards in the workplace, as well as work-related ailments and illnesses. This commitment goes beyond well-intentioned words, which is why we have underpinned these objectives with the implementation of OHSAS-certified, internationally recognised health and safety practices.
The efforts we take to ensuring the health and safety of employees are driven and backed at the highest levels of the company. This demonstrates our commitment to our employees, and helps to create a motivating, comfortable working environment in which people can confidently and safely pursue their professional ambitions.
