Compressed air solutions and services provider, Sullair Australia has recently achieved accreditation from Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) Australia for its Safety Management and Environmental Management Systems.
The accreditation ensures that Sullair Australia is operating to the world’s most stringent standards for Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S) management.
According to Sullair Australia HSE Manager, George Covino, achieving OHSAS18001 Safety Management System and ISO14001 Environmental Management System certification was a major worldwide corporate goal for Sullair in 2011.
The scope of the certification covers all aspects of the company’s assembly, repair and stockholding activities in addition to the servicing of packaged rotary screw and reciprocating compressor systems and associated compressed air equipment at customer sites.
The accreditation will lead to enhanced standards of product design and build, manufacturing and after-market care, delivering extensive benefits throughout the company as well as to the end user.
The OHSAS18001 and ISO14001 accreditation ensures that Sullair Australia’s compressed air solutions are designed with safety and environmental considerations as fundamental requirements. As a result, Sullair Australia’s manufacturing and service facilities now set the standard for safety and environmental practices and performance within its industry sector.
A key component of the accreditation is to certify that all safety and environmental standards are embedded into onsite servicing and repair operations at the end user’s facilities with Sullair service technicians operating to best-in-class environmental and safety practices that meet and often exceed the end users’ own EH&S requirements.
With the company operating to stringent EH&S standards, Sullair Australia customers can be assured of the robustness and quality of Sullair’s design, delivery and after-market support with the added advantage of the environmental ‘tick of approval’.
Covino adds that Sullair’s Environmental and Safety Management Systems also incorporate strategies for continual improvement so that they remain as efficient and effective as possible, and are able to evolve to meet changing operational and legislative performance requirements into the future.
Sullair Australia is an Australian designer and manufacturer of Champion brand industrial rotary screw air compressors and importer of Sullair diesel portable compressors.
Sullair Australia also offers engineered compressor solutions, plus an extensive range of vacuum systems, air treatment systems and water chillers.
