It’s an insightful look at how these globally recognised standards translate into real-world benefits for a growing company in the plastics sector.

Overview of Fusion Plastics' ISO Certification Journey

To enhance professionalism and instil client confidence, Fusion Plastics and Fusion Piping recently achieved three internationally recognised ISO certifications: Quality Management (ISO 9001), Environmental Management (ISO 14001), and Occupational Health and Safety Management (ISO 45001).

The Certification Process

Earning ISO certification is no small feat. It requires understanding the standards, planning and implementing changes, internal audits, management reviews, and external certification audits. Fusion diligently worked through each step, optimising operations and business practices to meet and exceed ISO requirements.

Going Above and Beyond

Fusion’s goal was obtaining certification and creating a culture of continual improvement. They enhanced quality control, sustainability measures, and workplace safety procedures beyond the necessary standards. Such dedication to excellence is what Fusion’s prominent clients have come to expect.

Benefits for the Plastics Industry

For Fusion and its clients, ISO 9001 certification means enhanced quality assurance and professionalism. ISO 14001 and 45001 certify Fusion’s commitment to environmental protection and employee well-being – values increasingly crucial in the plastics sector.

By achieving triple certification, Fusion is dedicated to quality, sustainability and safety. They stand poised to meet the needs of even the most discerning clients, expanding into new markets and opportunities. Through hard work and a vision for progress, Fusion has levelled up to become an industry leader.

The Rigorous ISO Certification Process

To achieve triple ISO certification, Fusion Plastics and Fusion Piping embarked on an intensive journey of assessment and improvement. First, they had to understand the requirements of each ISO standard inside out. This involved training staff on quality management, environmental sustainability, and the best practices of occupational health and safety.

With requirements clear, Fusion planned how to implement necessary changes and strengthen existing systems. They conducted internal audits to identify any gaps and then took corrective actions. Management reviewed progress, and when Fusion was ready, certification bodies audited them.

The audits were rigorous, examining everything from documentation to facility conditions. But Fusion’s dedication to excellence shone through. They didn’t just meet the standards; they exceeded them, enhancing operations beyond essential ISO compliance.

In an industry where ISO certifications are not always the norm, Fusion’s accomplishment demonstrates a progressive, professional approach that gives them a competitive edge. Their certifications show how Fusion is pioneering a new level of excellence in plastics fabrication and wholesaling.

This rigorous process and validation of Fusion’s standards assure stakeholders, highlight their credibility, and open doors to new opportunities. By going above and beyond in their certification journey, Fusion Plastics and Fusion Piping have well and truly levelled up.
