Certifications for Elevator Safety: Ensuring Quality and Reliability

The safety and reliability of elevators are crucial factors to consider when choosing an elevator for your building or establishment. In Australia, elevator safety is regulated by the state and territory governments, each with its own set of standards and regulations. However, to guarantee the highest level of safety, it is important to also look for certifications from independent organisations such as the International Organization for Standardisation (ISO). This blog post will delve into the certifications that ensure elevator safety and their importance for buyers and suppliers.

ISO 9001: The Gold Standard in Quality Assurance

West Coast Elevators, one of Australia's leading lift companies, has been awarded the ISO 9001 accreditation. This prestigious certification is the international gold standard in quality assurance, making it a mark of recognition for any industry professional. The ISO 9001 rating guarantees that West Coast Elevators will always provide honest dedication and the highest quality of service and products that meet global regulatory requirements.

Understanding ISO: Promoting Quality Management Systems

ISO is an independent organisation that works globally to promote international standards for quality management systems (QMS). A QMS helps organisations coordinate and direct activities to meet regulatory and customer requirements. The ISO 9001 certification is the most recognised quality management system standard in the world and can be used by any organisation, regardless of size. Currently, over one million companies in 170 countries hold an ISO 9001 certification.

Becoming ISO 9001 Certified: The Process

For an organisation to receive its ISO 9001 certification, it must follow the requirements outlined in the standard. The process involves four main steps. First, the ISO reviews the existing quality management systems of the company in relation to the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard. Next, an audit of the company's QMS documentation is conducted. Once completed, a certification audit is conducted on-site to confirm that the company has successfully implemented the QMS. Lastly, an annual surveillance audit is conducted to ensure the ongoing implementation of the QMS across the company.

The Importance of ISO 9001 Certification for Elevator Safety

Earning an ISO 9001 certification demonstrates a company's commitment to quality and effective management systems and increases its credibility and value. For anyone looking to buy an elevator, this certification assures that the company has the necessary systems in place to provide superior products and the highest level of customer service.
