Our Awards We always strive for continuous improvement Yale is often recognised for consistent processes and measurement, as well as our concern for the environment and safety. We are very proud of these achievements, but are always striving for even greater success in these areas. Internationally Recognised for ISO Accreditations Through Hyster-Yale Group, Inc, Yale Materials Handling Corporation has global certification for ISO9001:2008 and ISO14001:2001/2004, awarded for the implementation of quality systems for the design and manufacture of internal combustion-powered and electric-powered industrial lift trucks and lift truck components. The organization continues to maintain these standards on an ongoing basis, undergoing recertification in the different locations in accordance with the latest applicable standard, the most recent being ISO 9001/2008. ISO 14001 Registration All of our Americas and European manufacturing facilities have achieved ISO 14001 registration. ISO 14001 is a globally accepted blueprint for an environmental management system. It includes requirements for developing an environmental policy, assessing environmental impacts of products and processes, developing environmental goals and measurable objectives, implementation of initiatives to meet objectives, auditing, corrective action, and management review. Each of our sites closely tracks environmental and safety performance and sets objectives each year to drive continual improvement as an integral part of our business plan. OHSAS 18001 Registration Our Greenville, NC and Sulligent, AL facilities have already achieved registration to OHSAS 18001. This standard requires the establishment of a defined Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) management system to minimize or eliminate OH&S risks and a process of continuous improvement. We are currently pursuing registration at our other manufacturing facilities.
