PM Power certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001

PM POWER is a customer-driven company, with a flexible approach to on-site power generation. With a vast experience of over 40 years in sales, engineering, and service of gas and diesel generating plants and equipment.

With 30 years’ experience in supporting businesses with an Integrated Management System (IMS)  – Quality, Environmental and Health, and Safety Management Systems aligned with ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001, Quadra were appointed by PM POWER  to analyse their existing processes and measure them against the requirements of ISO 9001 Quality Management System, ISO 14001 Environmental Management System and ISO 45001 Health and Safety Management System with the objective of achieving accreditation.

What is an Integrated Management System (IMS)?

An IMS is a single system designed to manage multiple aspects of an organisation's operational line with multiple standards such as Quality, Environmental and Health and Safety. Integrating your Management System can bring many benefits such as avoiding duplication, using resource to implement and manage systems more efficiently and achieving more cost effective certification.

The process of implementation

The company realised the benefit that ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 certifications could bring to the business such as providing evidence of good governance and control, a competitive edge, standardising operational processes and setting a pathway for continuous improvement internally, through embedding Quality, Environmental and Health and Safety improvements within the organisation.

What did Quadra do?

Quadra met with relevant employees within PM POWER to understand the business operations, gather information and assess the existing Quality, Environmental and Health and Safety processes against the requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001.

After this, the outcome was an action plan to outline key steps and milestones for PM Power to achieve certification. Quadra developed process maps to meet the requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 for the organisation.

Quadra carried out a full internal audit of the system and facilitated a management review prior to external audit.

What was the outcome?

Following the two stages of external audit, PM POWER was successful in the recommendation to achieve their IMS ISO 9001 Quality Management, ISO 14001 Environmental Management and ISO 45001 Health and Safety Management. Achieving this certification was of huge importance in recognising the high levels of control which were already in place and putting a robust and internationally tried tested framework in place for ensuring the health and safety management system continues to improve over time.

What did the client say?

“The Team at Quadra understood our business goals and commercial needs with the formation of a robust Quality System. Not only did we achieve ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 accreditation, we also improved our workflows, procedures and controls. Thank you Quadra." Philip Pollock. Director. PM POWER.

SMC Industrial Automation (Ireland) Limited are an innovative Dublin based company which are part of a group of 58 subsidiaries of SMC Corporation, a global provider of pneumatic automation technology to a wide range of industries. Their key operations include the importation and distribution of these products to their multi-sectoral customer base.

The company realised the massive benefits that ISO9001 Quality Management and ISO14001 Environmental Management certifications could bring to the business in standardising operational processes through, and setting a pathway for continuous improvement internally, through embedding Quality and Environmental improvements within the organisation.

The process to certification

Based on Quadra’s 30-year heritage in supporting companies develop Quality and Environmental Management systems aligned with ISO9001 and ISO14001 requirements, we were selected to assist and collaborate with SMC to achieve these overall goals.

What did Quadra do?

Quadra met with staff within each business operation within SMC to understand business unit operations, gather information and access the existing Quality and Environmental processes against the requirements of ISO9001 and ISO14001. The outcome of this review was an action plan to provide an effective roadmap for SMC to achieve certification in both standards. Quadra developed process maps to satisfy the requirements of ISO9001 and ISO14001 and to reflect the operational requirements of the business and met with staff to raise awareness of the system requirements and assist in embedding the standards throughout the company. Following guidance through an implementation period, Quadra carried out a full internal audit of the systems across the organisation to assess and ensure readiness for certification and facilitated a management review in assessing the system prior to external audit.
