WEXFORD BUS ACHIEVE CERTIFICATION TO WORLD CLASS BUSINESS STANDARDS.
Wexford Bus was among 20 organisations from the private, public and SME sectors to gather at NSAI (National Standards Authority of Ireland) offices in Dublin for a special ceremony marking their achievement in becoming certified to world class business standards.
All of the businesses and bodies that achieved certification were independently audited by NSAI inspectors in order to ensure they complied with the international standards.
The ISO 9001:2015 certification is a recognition of the work and effort Wexford Bus has put in and underlines their commitment to working towards best practice.
The ISO management system helps Wexford Bus to improve our performance by encouraging a more systematic process-based approach to our business management system with a focus on management of risks and opportunities and continuous improvement. A significant number of system improvements and efficiencies have already been introduced as a direct result of reviewing our quality management system during the certification process.
They join an elite group of over 3,000 organisations who are currently NSAI-certified in a variety of areas such as Quality Management Systems, Environmental Management Systems, Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and Energy Management.
Brendan Crowley, Managing Director of Wexford Bus said:
“Wexford Bus has been growing by over 15% year on year for over a decade and after considerable consideration decided that it was timely to apply for the NSAI quality management system certification. This is the first year that we have been certified with the ISO 9001:2015 standard and we are already seeing the benefits this strategic approach is bringing. The number of opportunities for improvement that have been identified, documented and implemented within the first number of months is a testament to the commitment that the Wexford Bus team have in this business system and we are looking forward to seeing the continued positive impact into the future.”
