ZF Crick facility ISO-certified ahead of schedule

Published:  05 July, 2018

ZF Aftermarket has announced that its UK warehousing and office facility at Crick, Northampton has received certification against the latest environmental management standard: ISO14001:2015 – ahead of the September 2018 deadline. Using this standard will improve resource efficiency, reduce waste and drive down costs. In addition, the 96,000 sq ft site has been recertified for OHSAS18001:2007 Occupational Health and Safety standard.

ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.

The standard has been updated (ISO 14001:15) to respond to the latest trends in environmental management and includes additional requirements for: identifying and understanding the context of the organization; leadership; strategic environmental management; risk associated with threats and opportunities; life-cycle thinking; value chain controls; performance evaluation.

“To receive certification against the 2015 version at the first attempt is something we are extremely proud of,” explained Chris Cafferty, QHSE Manager, ZF Aftermarket.

“It’s down to the hard work, diligence and professionalism of the team at Crick, and their colleagues within the wider organisation. By implementing this standard at the facility, we will improve efficiency; reduce waste and lower costs – all of which will help strengthen our commitment to further increasing customer service levels – both internally and externally”
