SFA Achieves Four ISO Certifications

Street Furniture Australia is launching a new Integrated Management System to include ISO certifications in quality, OH&S, sustainability and the environment.

The system certified by QAS International is designed to meet the requirements of PAS99:2012 including Quality Management ISO 9001:2015, Environmental Management ISO 14001:2015, and OH&S Management ISO 45001:2018 and AS/NZS 4801:2001.

The certification will further strengthen our program of continuous improvement, says Christopher Morgan, Street Furniture Australia Operations Manager, with 24 small audits leading up to the annual audit in 12 months’ time.

“It’s not a rubber stamp that’s awarded once, it’s a system you need to continuously upgrade and improve,” he says.

The three months of work leading up to the certification has brought the entire team closer, he tells StreetChat.

“ISO is a great process as it requires different departments to work together with a common goal. It brings our Marketing, Production, Design, Engineering and Finance teams together to look at how they interact, to make sure everything flows,” he says.

“This helps everyone to better understand how other teams work, and collaborate more closely in future.

“As a company that wants to keep growing and moving forward, ISO will help us to measure improvement and how well we do.”
