Safety, quality & control
Backer AB was recently certified according to both IATF and ISO 45001
The IATF is an “ad hoc” group of automotive manufacturers and their respective National Automotive Industry Associations, formed to provide improved quality products to automotive customers worldwide. Specifically, the purposes for which the IATF was established are:
- To develop a consensus regarding international fundamental quality system requirements, primarily for the participating companies’ direct suppliers of production materials, product or service parts or finishing services (e.g. heat treating, painting and plating). These requirements will also be available for other interested parties in the automotive industry.
- To develop policies and procedures for the common IATF third party registration scheme to ensure consistency worldwide.
- To provide appropriate training to support IATF 16949 requirements and the IATF registration scheme.
- To establish formal liaisons with appropriate bodies to support IATF objectives.
ISO 45001 is a management system for work environment and Backer AB's certification according to this system is another step towards creating a safe workplace for all employees.
In short, the management system covers all activities we already work with within quality and environment, including methodology for managing different types of risks. A significant difference compared to other systems, however, is the requirements for cooperation and consultation, which is why our work with the safety organization, for example our work environment group, has been further strengthened.
