Whilst this time working from home has been challenging under a 24/7 lockdown we have been using the time wisely to help create some free online content specifically for those who are really feeling the effects of these unprecedented times so please head over to our Youtube channel: KOJ Interiors for more information!
With the negative news out there and uncertainty, we wanted to share a ray of light with you today and some positive news about the work we have been doing behind the scenes at KOJ Interiors. Although the works had started for this project many months prior to the crisis we can now proudly announce the KOJ Interiors have successfully renewed ISO 9001, 14001 & 45001 third party certification of our Integrated Management System.
What does this mean?
ISO 9001:2015 is a non-industry specific certification and is intended for any organization that wants to implement and maintain a quality management system. Certifications are issued by third-party certifying bodies.
ISO 14001:2015 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements
ISO 45001:2018 is an International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organization to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health.
All our departments which include Design, Project Management, Commercial & Estimations, Business Development, Marketing, and our Manufacturing facility in Ras Al Khaimah have passed a global standard with flying colors. Achieving certification against these three internationally recognized standards demonstrates to our current, and future, clients that KOJ Interiors are operating to not only the highest local standards but also Global Best Practice.
What is ISO?
ISO is the International Organization for Standardization
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO; /ˈaɪsoʊ/) is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. Started back on the 23rd February 1947, the organization promotes worldwide proprietary, industrial, and commercial standards
The Purpose of ISO Standards
ISO standards are designed to make products and services better and to make companies, governments, and other organizations more efficient. Some standards are designed for specific industries, like the food industry, or designed to help improve the environment.
