Xperien extends its dominance in the ITAD space
Xperien has now completed a hat trick of ISO certifications including quality management, environmental management and its latest addition, occupational health and safety. This will help the company extend its dominance in the IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) space.
Achieving ISO 45001 occupational health and safety clearly illustrates how serious Xperien is about improving employee safety, reducing workplace risks and creating better, safer working conditions.
To compete in this specialised industry, service providers need to comply with international high-quality standards. It not only helps them embed excellence into the way they work, but it helps them to improve performance, reduce risk and achieve sustainable growth.
Xperien SHEQ Manager Ruth Mokwena says health and safety in the workplace are the number one concern of most businesses. “ISO 45001:2018 sets the minimum standard of practice to protect employees. It will help us manage our risks and improve our performance by developing and implementing effective policies and objectives.”
“According to the International Labour Organisation, more than 7 600 people die from work-related accidents or diseases every single day. That is why an ISO committee of occupational health & safety experts set to work to develop an International Standard with the potential to save almost three million lives each year,” she explains.
Xperien has also received ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System (EMS) accreditation for the refurbishment and redistribution of redundant IT assets and equipment.
This certification was developed for businesses to incorporate environmental aspects into operations and product standards. It assures customers of a service provider’s commitment to demonstrable environmental management.
In addition, Xperien has also been accredited with Quality Management System (QMS). This shows that it complies with requirements of ISO 9001:2015 for the Collection and Disposal of IT assets and equipment.
“These internationally recognised ISO certifications help us demonstrate our ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements,” she says.
“It also serves as a tool to restructure our processes and make us more efficient at what we do, which in turn brings many benefits, including satisfied customers, management and staff,” she concludes.
