For the latest in our series of blog posts about ReAgent’s new three-year business plan, which was unveiled at the end of 2018, we turn our attention to QHSE.

QHSE (Quality, Health, Safety, and Environment) is a critical business area, especially for a chemical manufacturing company. At ReAgent, we pride ourselves on the quality of our products and processes, focus thoroughly on all aspects of health and safety, and do as much as we can to be an eco-friendly company.

QHSE Business Plan Objectives

There are three core objectives for QHSE in ReAgent’s exciting new business plan: to be ISO 13485 and ISO 45001 accredited, and to continue to meet the government’s Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) requirements.

ISO 13485

ISO 13485 is an International Standards Organisation (ISO) accreditation for quality management systems in the design and manufacture of medical devices throughout production. It is closely linked to ISO 9001, a quality standard accreditation ReAgent already holds.

Holding ISO 13485 will benefit ReAgent’s medical device customers by demonstrating increased quality, efficiency and better reliability.

ISO 45001

The ISO 45001 accreditation will benefit ReAgent’s employees. As a chemical manufacturing company, we want to make sure we are focused on the health and safety of our team. ISO 45001 covers occupational health and safety management systems. This accreditation requires us to “put a framework in place to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions.”

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)

ReAgent's New Business Plan: QSHE - Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a set of government required standards in production, manufacture and sales in the medical industry. GMP standards contain the minimum requirements necessary to ensure constantly high quality across all batches of products, that each product is being manufactured for its intended use, and that product specification is met.

ReAgent currently manufactures products and works in accordance with the Good Manufacturing Practice. GMP is strictly adhered to. Our next step is for all employees to have continued GMP training.
