Our quality and safety policies
Houghton International operates in sectors where quality procedures and the safety of equipment are critical. As such, we have developed a rigorous quality policy with processes and procedures to ensure that everything we do is of the highest standard.
Our policies and procedures are consistently reviewed across the business, reflecting our culture of continuous improvement. We invest in our plant and machinery and the training of our staff to guarantee a high-quality process.
Our quality management system is accredited to BSI EN ISO 9001:2015
Our occupational health and safety management system is accredited to BS EN ISO 45001:2018
Our environmental management system is accredited to BSI EN ISO 14001:2015
Our workshop is EASA accredited, meaning that Houghton International has successfully demonstrated that it complies with EASA AR100 and follows the prescribed good practices to consistently deliver quality electromechanical repairs that maintain or improve AC electric motor efficiency and reliability. We are also a IECEx certified service facility which demonstrates our capability to safely repair and overhaul equipment used in explosive atmospheres.
Our Achilles category B2 and UVDB accredited workshop has the latest facilities to accommodate large machines, including a 40-tonne crane and dynamic testing capabilities and we can provide full load testing as required to guarantee performance after the work has been undertaken.
Furthermore, our RISAS accreditation provides clear evidence of robust supply chain processes and control. The Railway Industry Supplier Approval Scheme (RISAS) is a proven, reliable way for the rail industry to assess and approve critical product suppliers, supported by the safety regulator. Transferable across all industries and sitting alongside our other independently audited certifications for quality management, this means customers can be confident we have robust procedures and processes in place to deliver our commitments.
It is important our customers feel reassured that their data is in safe hands. Houghton International is Cyber Essentials certified, demonstrating the business has implemented controls to strengthen cyber defences and protect against common kinds of cyber attacks. The UK Government backed scheme helps protect against attacks such as phishing, malware, ransomware, password guessing and network attacks. The Cyber Essentials certification confirms Houghton International has applied the five key cybersecurity controls recommended for businesses by the National Cyber Security Centre.
