Focus on SHEQ (Safety, Health, Environment and Quality)
Health and Safety
DK Packing’s priority is to safeguard the well-being of our people, visitors, customers and the wider public, by means of a continuously improved Health and Safety Management System. This is achieved through documented risk assessments, training, communication, and active employee involvement, via H&S Committee Meetings.
For the last 5 years, the business has achieved ROSPA certification; with the ‘Gold’ awarded in 2016.
ISO9001 – Quality Certification
At DK Packing, we understand that the quality of our service is paramount to our customers, and we strive to ‘fulfil their specified requirements, needs and expectations,’ in line with the Group Mission Statement. As a result, we pride ourselves upon delivery condition, accuracy and timing. To achieve this, procedures and checks are in place for each stage of the process, to ensure the highest levels of performance.
The company is certified to Quality Standard ISO 9001:2008 by LRQA at Lawford Heath, Rugby (Packing) and Newcastle-under-Lyme (wheel tyre and assembly). We will achieve a move to the 2015 version, inside the allotted timeframe set by ISO.
ISO14001 – Environmental Certification
As part of DK Packing’s commitment to Environmental Standard ISO14001, to which sites at Lawford Heath, Rugby, and Coventry are accredited. The company has introduced a number of initiatives to improve the handling of waste, in order to reduce our environmental impact.
Cardboard and plastics are compacted and baled prior to recycling, to significantly reduce the volume of waste produced. Paper and pallets are also recycled. Registered waste carriers are evaluated regularly, in the interests of continuous improvement.
We have a Group Management Strategy to develop accreditation to ISO standards, across all three elements of SHEQ, stretching to each of our sites, where applicable. DK Packing is part of that vision.
DK Packing consider Risk Management, a priority. We have a 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a-week professional security operation, who are employed to handle this concern. We have CCTV both outside and inside the premises, which gives natural confidence and assurance.
Security of information is controlled by our IT department, through the use of firewalls, protecting against outside influences. Individual passwords are issued and renewed, for in-house users, with different levels of access, dependent upon responsibility.
Full traceability of product is achieved, by tracking each part at Goods-In, as they travel between each step of the process, right through to Despatch.
