ISO: Supporting Genton’s Design Capability

Genton continually strives to deliver best practice in our conduct as individuals, designers and as a company. To support this commitment, we began our ISO journey in 2016 following our engagement on Frankston Station. We have since obtained three third-party ISO accreditations, providing assurance to our clients and staff that we design and operate according to the highest standards.

“As a design-led practice, design competition successes for state and local government clients have been transformational in Genton’s ability to grow into new sectors that inspire us, including public transport and cultural infrastructure,” says Genton Principal Steven Toia.

“Our third-party ISO accreditations provide clients and competition organisers with certainty that Genton consistently operates according to best practice in our management of quality, the environment, and occupational health and safety.”

Recognised by 165 national standard bodies across the world, Genton’s systems and processes hold the following ISO certifications:

Quality Management ISO 9001:2015

ISO 9001:2015 enables an organisation to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, as well as offering a framework to enhance customer satisfaction.

Environmental Management ISO 14001:2015

ISO 14001:2015 guides an organisation to enhance environmental performance, fulfil compliance obligations and achieve environmental objectives, contributing to sustainability and providing value for the organisation and its stakeholders.

OH&S Management ISO 45001:2018

ISO 45001:2018 helps an organization to attain the intended outcomes of its occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, including continual improvement of OH&S performance, elimination of hazards and minimize OH&S risks, fulfilment of legal and other requirements, and the achievement of OH&S objectives.

“Dovetailing with our culture of continued learning and improvement, our ISO journey has been both educational and reaffirming for the Genton team,” concludes Toia.
