Our quality and environmental issues are managed according to the quality management standard ISO 9001 and the environmental management standard ISO 14001. It covers the whole chain from design, sales and project realisation to manufacturing of metal based building products and welded structures. Our load bearing products are also certified according to EN 1090. Almost all of our activities and locations are certified.
In accordance with management systems, processes and environmental aspects of operations are identified at Ruukki, and the targets and the programmes to achieve them are drawn up. Part of the environmental management system is to identify statutory requirements relating to operations, and to ensure compliance with these and with voluntary commitments. Identifying and developing the needs of stakeholders is also an important part of managing quality and environmental issues.
To ensure continuous improvement, the systems and operations are regularly assessed using both internal and external audits. In audits, it will be established whether or not the systems meet the requirements. In addition, management will regularly establish in its reviews, whether or not the quality and environmental management systems meet the targets set.
