The auditor's recommendation for certification to ISO 9001:2015 for a roll printing company this week was our 99th certification to 9001, 14001 or 18001 standards. These were spread over 62 companies.
March will see another certification which will make our century.
Then there are 40 FSC and 39 PEFC certifications plus others, such as ISO 13485.
Strategic Safety Systems have provided health, safety, environmental or quality services for over 300 companies in the Printing Industry over the last 20 years. This was our 10th roll printing company and our familiarity with their operations smoothed the process considerably. But we cover many other industries.
All of the certifications use the SSS standard of simplified systems which are implementation-focused, rather than being thick, wordy documents one normally associates with ISO certifications. Both the user companies and external auditors find them so easy to follow. Because of this reputation, SSS are often approached to simplify unworkable systems created by other organisations.
