ISO 9001:2015 certification
To demonstrate our commitment to the delivery of quality services and programs, Koomarri undergoes annual audits to maintain ISO 9001:2015 certification.
The audit examines the capability and effectiveness of Koomarri's quality management systems including compliance with customer, statutory and regulatory requirements. The auditors also ensure we continue to meet our specified objectives and are satisfying the needs of our stakeholders.
The auditors consider our formal documentation including WHS manuals and forms including employee goals and assessments. Staff and service users are also interviewed to provide feedback on our performance.
Our continued certification under this framework provides all our service users with assurance that Koomarri programs are of the highest quality.
