November heralds World Quality Month, a global celebration that resonates profoundly at WearCheck. This annual observance aligns seamlessly with our core mission – delivering unparalleled quality services.
At WearCheck, our commitment to Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) is unwavering. Rigorous audits from esteemed bodies such as SANS (South African National Standards) and SABS (South African Bureau of Standards) are routine for our services.
Distinguishing itself on the African continent, WearCheck stands as the sole company holding multiple quality confirmation certificates, including ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 certification, and ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation. These accolades undergo regular scrutiny, with our track record showcasing a flawless renewal of accreditations and certifications.
Peace of mind
Our relentless pursuit of top-notch service is a source of pride, offering our clients the assurance that WearCheck's laboratory results and analytics are scientifically accurate, fostering peace of mind.
ISO 14001, earned in January 2005, underscores WearCheck's commitment to international standards governing environmental responsibilities. ISO 9001, initially awarded in 1996, acknowledges our integrated design, development, and provision of condition monitoring services to global standards.
ISO/IEC 17025, the international benchmark for laboratory competence, was first awarded to WearCheck’s Water Laboratory in 2003, followed by our Specialist Laboratory in 2012. Since then, our Water Laboratory has added various methods to our schedule, the latest being Microbiology methods under ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Accreditation.
Benefits for our customers
The benefits for our clients are manifold. The globally recognized ISO 9001:2015 standard holds sway, with some customers insisting on certified companies due to the assurance that management systems undergo continual assessment and enhancement.
The advantages extend to improved quality and service, punctual delivery, a right-first-time approach, minimised error incidence, enhanced reporting and communications, superior products and services, dependable production scheduling and delivery, and the perpetuation of standards through annual assessments.
The ISO system not only fosters an efficient management process but is also a prerequisite for tendering in certain public sector projects. Beyond the tangible benefits, certification sends a positive message to both customers and staff, simultaneously reducing costs by spotlighting time-saving procedures. At WearCheck, World Quality Month is not just a celebration; it's a reaffirmation of our unwavering commitment to excellence.
