09 Jun Westfield Energy Resources Limited Gets ISO 9001:2008 Certification
Westfield Energy Resources Limited was recently awarded ISO 9001:2008 certification by Bureau Veritas, a world leader in Testing, Inspection and Certification services.
The company achieved this international standard certification through dedication and with the cooperation of all members of staff, especially the Quality Assurance department.
During the six months implementation period of the Quality Management System that built-up to the certificate issuance, the company developed its quality manual and defined quality policies and objectives. Quality procedures with work processes were drawn up with flow charts, work instructions etc. covering all aspects of our operations, resulting in standardization and facilitating operational excellence. Training needs were also identified and yearly training schedules planned for employees to be more well verse in performing their duties.
Speaking on the certification, the MD/CEO of Westfield Energy Resources Limited, (WERL) Mr. Henry Okolie-Aboh said “this achievement is one we are particularly proud of as it demonstrates our mission and vision statements, our commitment to providing the highest quality products and services to our clients and further establishes WERL as a fast growing company in the Oil & Gas Industry in Nigeria. The certification is also a significant milestone in our continued efforts to improve and reflects our on-going investment in technology, development and process maturity. Delivering responsibly is a key priority for us at WERL – it’s even an obsession. The ISO accreditation shows just how far we shall go to ensure the best quality of work for all of our clients and we are proud of what we have achieved.”
“ISO 9001 is a family of standards for quality management systems and is designed to help organisations ensure that they meet the needs of customers and employees. WERL’s certification of compliance recognises that our policies, practices and procedures ensure consistent quality in the services and products that we deliver every day to our clients.” he added.
“We were very keen from the onset to ensure that the ISO framework was used to bring genuine value to our clients, rather than focusing on the accreditation for the sake of having it. Before presenting ourselves to the certification agency (in our case Bureau Veritas, an accredited registrar) hours of work and preparation were undertaken, internal policies and processes aligned with ISO standards, employees trained and internal audits completed.” said Mr. Okolie-Aboh.
