The ISO certifications are critical to Alduco Engineering operations:
We are proud to have been awarded this certification.
ISO certification is one of the most widely recognized and internationally accepted quality management standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS).
ISO 9001:2015 certification helps the company primarily to achieve customer satisfaction by meeting customer requirements through the application of the system, the continual improvement of the system and the prevention of nonconformity.
ISO 14001:2015 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It is a systematic framework to manage the immediate and long term environmental impacts of an organization’s products, services and processes. Our company assures stakeholders that our environmental management system meets international industry specific environmental standards.
ISO 45001:2018 specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, and gives guidance for its use, to enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and illness. ISO 45001:2018 helps our company to achieve the intended outcomes of our occupational health and safety management system.
