Health and Safety During the COVID-19 Crisis
To our clients and all interested parties,
WP Group is committed to helping our clients obtain and maintain certifications of various kinds. It is important for our global economy that our industries remain active and our businesses operational.
As registration bodies are beginning to allow certification audits to be performed remotely, WP Group is leading the way in remote, virtual consulting to assist with your implementation or with the maintenance of your existing system. We've been doing this successfully for many years.
Our top priority is the health and safety of our consultants, our clients, and all those we come in contact with.
We recognize the critical importance that our clients continue to operate and produce quality products that society can depend on. It is critical that our clients continue to operate to the strict requirements of AS9100, ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and many other standards. Our global economy needs the products our clients produce, such as aircraft parts, sterile medical devices, pharmaceuticals, defense assets, and many others. Our economy also needs a robust supply chain and to strive to keep our workers employed.
We have therefore instituted the following Health and Safety policy as of March 16, 2020:
- Consulting will be performed remotely using technology for all engagements unless there is a mission-critical need for a consultant to be on site.
- If it is absolutely critical for on-site visits our consultants and clients are required to follow all safety protocol guidelines published by the CDC and other authorities.
It is important that we try to continue our normal operations as much as possible and to remain positive while taking every possible measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
