An effective occupational Hearing Conservation Plan (HCP) preserves and protects the hearing of employees who work in manufacturing, farms, mines, military bases and other noisy workplaces. An HCP also gives employees the knowledge they need to protect themselves from nonoccupational noise exposure. Since most HCP consists of Noise measurement, Noise control, Audiometric testing, Employee education/ training, and hearing protection we encourage most organizations to choose a provider who is ISO 9001 certified. Why?
What is ISO 9001
ISO 9001 is a comprehensive management system standard. ISO 9001 is maintained by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization and is administered by independent accreditation and certification bodies.
Some of the requirements in ISO 9001 include:
• A set of procedures that cover all key processes in the business
• Monitoring processes to ensure they are effective
• Keeping adequate records
• Checking output for defects, with appropriate and corrective action where necessary
• Regularly reviewing individual processes and the quality system itself for effectiveness
• Facilitating continual improvement
Why choosing an ISO 9001 provider is a good idea?
The benefits of ISO 9001 are not overstated; companies large and small have gained great benefits from using this standard by discovering cost and efficiency savings. Here are a couple of explanations of benefits to you and your company and why they are important:
Improvement of your credibility and image
Because ISO 9001 is an internationally recognized standard, it has become the basis for creating a quality management system around the world, replacing many previously published requirements. When a company is looking for a supplier, it is often a requirement to have a QMS based on ISO 9001 in order to be considered. This means that your investment in hearing testing and protection adheres to a quality standard in the industry. You are getting the best.
Improvement of customer satisfaction
One of the quality management principles that are the foundation of the ISO 9001 requirements is to improve customer satisfaction by planning for and striving to meet customer requirements. This is vital to the success of your HCP program because satisfied wearers can mean happier employees and higher productivity and work safety standards.
