14 August 2014

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has achieved ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 recertification for its quality, environmental, and occupational health and safety management systems.

The triple recertification covers all ESAB activities, people and units worldwide. ESAB is said to be the first company in the industry to achieve all-inclusive external certification of these three key management standards. The comprehensive recertification, performed every three years, certifies all aspects of ESAB’s global business and demonstrates the company’s commitment to continuous improvement. 
ISO 9001 certification validates that ESAB’s quality processes and systems meet specific criteria for ensuring consistent and continuously improving quality systems that fulfill customer requirements.
ISO 4001 certification promotes efficient and effective environmental initiatives, including global warming countermeasures, elimination of hazardous chemical substances from products, and establishment of a product recycling system. This certification strengthens ESAB’s environmental initiatives geared toward greater sustainability.
OHSAS 18001 is widely viewed as the world’s most recognized occupational health and safety management systems standard. This management system aids ESAB in consistently identifying and controlling health and safety risks; reducing the potential for accidents; supporting legislative compliance; and improving overall operating performance.
