The International Standards Organisation (ISO) was established in 1947 and sets global benchmark standards in areas such as safety and quality. ISO accreditation is sought after as a means of showing potential customers and employees that an organisation follows reputable protocols. To attain and retain ISO accreditation it’s necessary to maintain thorough practices and go through rigorous auditing processes. Altec Australia is proud to be ISO accredited in the areas of environmental, safety, and quality.
ISO 9001 focuses on quality in a comprehensive way by evaluating how products are designed, manufactured, installed, and how business processes are conducted. Altec takes a holistic approach when delivering high quality products and services to our customers. This is demonstrated in our dedication to continuous improvement as it is one of our core values. Our products are rigorously tested to ensure that they meet the highest product standards. Processes within the business are periodically reviewed and improved when deemed the best solution. An important consideration with quality is to recognise that it is an ongoing and dynamic commitment.
The ISO 45001 standard is concerned with environmental management, most importantly how businesses can work as contributors to sustainability. Altec’s manufacturing processes are geared towards minimal impact on the environment including selective material use, conscious supplier selection, and our methods of supplying services to our customers. Through the supply of efficient equipment and our ability to rebuild older equipment, we assist our customers in reducing their impact on the environment.
Safety is one of Altec’s main focuses and ISO 14001 assists in laying the groundwork to achieve a safe workplace. The highest safety standards are achieved by organisations that are concentrated on anticipating risks and implementing strategies to mitigate them. Altec equipment is designed with these standards in mind by incorporating features including load management, virtual traffic walls, and other industry leading preventative measures. All Altec associates are deeply involved in safety protocols with a focus on protecting one another and constantly finding safer ways to get the job done.
Altec does not view ISO accreditation as simply meeting standards but as a means to facilitate continuous improvement. Altec’s quality, environmental, and safety processes are focused on providing great outcomes for our customers, operators, and teammates. We strive for the best working environment for the entire Altec family.
