Accreditation

Quality

We strive to produce the best quality products and our skilled laboratory personnel are totally committed to technological excellence.
In 1989, Associated Additives was awarded an ISO9001 listing thereby reinforcing our reputation as a quality supplier.
In addition, our Quality Management System is backed by our highly sophisticated QC and R&D laboratories and we have the only factory-based accredited facility for the testing of Lead-in-air in Southern Africa.

Our laboratories not only ensure the best quality products but also allow us to continuously develop innovative products for our customers.


Environment

The belief that the protection of the environment is the responsibility of everyone is whole heartedly endorsed at Associated Additives and we have demonstrated this commitment by being successfully accredited with the ISO 14001 Environmental Management system.

We are proactively engaged at all times in the prevention of pollution of the environment from hazardous waste products such as:

  • Atmospheric emissions
  • Liquid emissions
  • Solid waste
  • Excessive noise

In our commitment to a healthy and clean environment, our policy is to exceed all statutory requirements and continue to monitor all such aspects of the processing and end use of our products.

Environmental awareness and stringent training in safety and hygiene forms a regular part of our employee training programme and ensures that every employee is conscious of the company’s objectives in this regard.


Health and Safety

In addition to the above, the company also takes its employees’ health and safety very seriously and is also accredited with the OSH 18001 Occupational health and safety management system.

Health and safety form a vital part of our corporate values. We will always put our responsibility for health, safety and the environment first. We operate our plant in compliance with the law and ensure that our operating and management systems are continually reviewed and updated, so that our working practices safeguard our people, the environment and contribute to sustainable development.

We are committed to encouraging the behaviours and attitudes that will drive a safe for life culture throughout our business.
