Echterhage Holding certifies itself as a group of companies with the Multisite Certification

At the end of March, Echterhage Holding and the companies HBE, VSE, DST and Beinlich simultaneously underwent an elaborate auditing process by TÜV Nord in the four areas of occupational health and safety, environment, quality and energy.

Thanks to intensive preparations by the quality management team and the departments involved, the Echterhage Holding and the aforementioned production companies were able to meet the strict requirements of the international standards. All companies successfully passed the certifications according to ISO 9001:2015 (quality management), ISO 45001:2018 (occupational health and safety), ISO 50001:2018 (energy management) and ISO 14001:2015 (environmental protection management).

An important tool for the successful implementation of numerous requirements of the four standards is the integrated management system. It creates a transparent map of the existing processes, compares them with the requirements of the standards and documents necessary measures to fulfil the required criteria.

With the help of regular internal audits, critical self-assessments in the individual departments and permanent compliance with legal requirements, a continuous improvement process is ensured. This is recorded in the annual management review. In this way, self-imposed goals as well as legal requirements for the company and products can be communicated and implemented in a comprehensible manner and the measures taken can be documented transparently.

We would like to thank all those involved and hope for continued comprehensive cooperation in order to continue to master future monitoring audits with confidence.
