Successful quality and occupational safety audit
RTS Wind AG (Germany) and RTS Wind GmbH (Austria) were audited for four days in January in the area of occupational safety and quality. We are pleased to announce that we have recently received ISO 45001:2018 certification, which replaces OHSAS 18001. The recertification of the ISO 9001:2015 standard was equally successful.
- ISO 45001:2018
The globally valid standard formulates the requirements for occupational health and safety management systems and replaces the previous OHSAS 18001 standard.
- ISO 9001:2015
This norm is a worldwide recognized standard that defines requirements for effective quality management in a company.
For the audit we were visited for four days by two certifiers from DEKRA. Their task is to examine each standard point of the isonorms in detail and to check for deviations. The audit team goes through all departments and areas.
In addition to the visit to the headquarters in Bremen, a certifier flew to RTS Wind GmbH in Austria for one day. The service & maintenance base in Beverstedt was also visited and a team was accompanied during a wind-dependent maintenance. The service car also came under the microscope.
We are very pleased to be able to announce here that we passed the audit with success. Special thanks go to the RTS audit team which we briefly introduce on the right-hand side. We would also like to thank all employees who were involved in the audit and who apply and represent the defined standards in their everyday work. Only in this way were we able to pass the audit.
Next year we will continue with the surveillance audit.
Quality Management Representative
Jonas Schröder was officially appointed by RTS as quality management officer in January 2020. Prior to this, he had already completed an internship of several months at RTS in quality management as part of his studies. The audit in January was his first audit and he mastered this challenge very well. The 27-year-old is still studying "International Business Management" with a focus on "Conscious Business" and is delighted that he can work at RTS in the field of renewable energies and environmental protection, as these topics also interest him a great deal in his private life.
Authorized signatory / Occupational Safety Manager
As part of the management and responsible for the area of occupational safety, Mr. Lücking has contributed significantly to the certification of RTS. Especially in the new certification ISO 45001 he has taken over a large part of the presentation of the topic in the audit.
Procurement / Data Protection Manager
Mr. Temps has been involved in the introduction and development of the QM system for RTS from the very beginning and has already passed several audits. With his extensive know-how he has complemented the audit team very well.
