Southa places a high priority on our Quality Management. We have developed and maintained an effective quality management system that complies with ISO 9002 and confirms to statutory and customer requirements since 1996 then ISO 9001 since 2000.
All contract operations, design, installation and maintenance procedures are systematically described in the safety manual and closely monitored by various Quality Supervisors with high standard of integrity. As a result, we have achieved no "non-compliance" in all of our bi-annual surveillance reports from external auditors.
Southa is committed to environmental protection and was accredited with the relevant certificate ISO 14001 in 2006. Supplying environment-friendly and energy-efficient products, designing innovative solutions in an environmentally conscious manner, as well as employing the latest state『of-the-art technologies must always be on our agenda. Over the years’ Southa has been actively promoting and installing systems in this direction. To name but a few:
- Application of O ODP & 0 GWP ammonia as refrigerant in air-conditioning;
- Use of O ODP & 0 GWP hydrocarbon (such as propane and isobutane) in unitary air-conditioning equipment such as window units, household fridges;
- Cross-contamination-free total energy recovery wheels employing the latest selective adsorption technology via 3A molecular sieve;
- High-efficiency lighting;
- Predictive and adaptive control system
- Our own Building Management System is based on a truly open platform such as the IEEE802.3 Ethernet and open protocol like TCP/IP. Furthermore, artificial intelligence can give the system a "self-learning’, capability to allow it to adapt to the actual customer requirements. We have successfully installed this type of "self-learning" systems in major production facilities in Mainland China.
- Pumpable slurry ice;
- Maximum use of off-site fabrication, such as pre-insulated chilled water pipes, prefabricated air ducts, branched cables, in order to reduce on-site consumption and waste.
Whenever new opportunities arise, Southa will take the lead in commercially realizing environment-friendly solutions. We also conduct routine monitoring and auditing to ensure that our environmental policy is implemented at all levels.
As a result of the greenhouse effect, we are suffering from the problem of global warming which is the climate change phenomenon with the temperature rise in Earth’s atmosphere and ocean. It has already been an important issue for enterprises to promote green productivity by adjusting energy usage and developing an energy management system.
Energy management system standard ISO 50001 was announced in 2011. In the same year, Southa belonged to the first engineering organizations which were accredited with this certificate.
Southa is committed to energy conservation. By means of systematic techniques, we continuously improve the energy-saving performance in order to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission.
Southa is totally committed to quality, environmental, energy, safety and health management. In summary, we shall ensure our Integrated Management System is in full compliance with the following standards:
ISO 9001 Quality Management System Standard
ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Standard
ISO 50001 Energy Management System Standard
ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management System Standard
Moreover, all staff members are encouraged to participate actively in our integrated management system improvement.
