Knight Piésold Argentina Achieves ISO Recertification with Expanded Scope

August 6, 2020, Mendoza, Argentina – Knight Piésold Argentina has successfully passed the audits for the following standards: ISO 9001:2015 for quality management, ISO 14001:2015 for environmental management, and OHSAS 18001:2007 for occupational health and safety management. The Instituto Argentino de Normalización y Certificación (IRAM) conducted the audits, highlighting that “the company has proven that its management system has evolved to a new level, expanding the scope of processes and completing four review cycles satisfactorily.” IRAM recertified Knight Piésold Argentina for the three standards plus the expanded scope that covers the following services:

  • Environmental and social studies
  • Environmental management
  • Engineering for projects
  • Project quality supervision
  • Construction site management

General Manager Alejandro Demonte, together with the implementation team, which is made up of Facundo Bastías, Silvina López, and Adrián Rosales, achieved the effective integration of quality, environmental, and health and safety standards into the company’s main technical and support processes. IRAM emphasized that “since the certification of the management system in 2017, the company has shown tangible improvements in its different processes and an increasingly successful and effective integration of its activities with multiple performance indicators to support their performance.”

David Villegas, Operations Manager, said, “This year, Knight Piésold managed to change the scope of processes and integrate a wide range of services, guaranteeing our clients optimal performance and world-class technical and management support.”

The management system’s certification demonstrates Knight Piésold Argentina’s compliance with quality, environmental, and health and safety standards and is a fundamental recognition for the company’s work. Demonte said, “Our management system makes us stand out in the market and is an added value that our clients recognize continuously. This allows us to raise our standards and is our basis for taking on new challenges.”
