Wastewater treatment company, Aerofloat Australia has achieved International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) standards certification for three of its integrated management systems.

Aerofloat undertook the rigorous certification process and was successfully certified by the JAS-ANZ accredited group, CPG. It has been awarded ISO 14001 – Environmental Management System, ISO 9001 – Quality Management System, and ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety.

The company said ISO certification in the three areas represents excellence in the provision of services for design, engineering, consulting, manufacturing, installation, commissioning and aftercare for wastewater and water treatment systems; highlighting Aerofloat’s unique offering as a full-service, end-to-end wastewater treatment company.

Aerofloat Business Operations general manager Katie Moor said it highlights the company’s relentless attention to detail. “Aerofloat is an end-to-end ISO-certified business. We do all our work in-house, from designing to manufacturing and installation. It also extends to our after-care products and services,” Moor said.

ISO is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards. ISO international standards ensure products and services meet the needs of customers through an effective quality management system. The certification process included a full review of Aerofloat’s integrated management system, pre-audit and assessment and clearance of non-conformances.

“Achieving these ISO certifications demonstrates Aerofloat’s innovative and systematic approach to developing world class solutions to wastewater problems globally. It confirms the quality of our work in the sector and highlights Aerofloat’s commitment to providing the highest standard of work practices to its clients and the greater industry.

“Quality and safety have always been integral to Aerofloat. A culture of improvement is part of our DNA, so acquiring ISO certification was the natural next step in Aerofloat’s journey.”  

Moor cofounded the company in 2009. She is a chemical engineer with training in process improvement methodologies including six sigma and lean manufacturing. The company said Moor’s experience and training resulted in no non-conformances across all three ISO standards.

“We are incredibly proud of the Aerofloat team for achieving this trifecta,” Moor said.
