Surgitrac Instruments is pleased to announce its accreditation of Level 3 Labour Standards Assurance System (LSAS).
LSAS is designed to reduce the incidence of labour standards abuses in the medical supply industry.
The annual, independent audit, carried out by SGS UK – the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company audits and awards against 15 separate criteria such as documentation, supply chain management and operational control.
Surgitrac’s systems and procedures scored at least Level 3 on each category and exceed in four areas that met those requirements for Level 4 standards
Lynn Ogden, Internal Sales Manager and Bid Co-ordinator says:
“This is a fantastic achievement for Surgitrac that will further bolster its NHS framework and tender applications, not only does Surgitrac meet the NHS Supply Chain’s minimum, Level 2 standards for LSA, it exceeds in all areas.”
Companies who supply to the National Health Service (NHS) Supply Chain must ensure the use of fair labour in their supply chain. The LSAS was developed by NHS Supply Chain, the Department of Health and other industry bodies to guide companies in this fair labour process. The system uses a maturity matrix consisting of four levels of compliance companies can achieve, each with its own set of actionable steps.
