ISO 9001:2008 Certificate

NPO Ope­ra­tion Life­sa­ver Esto­nia (OLE) was the first non-pro­fit orga­ni­sa­tion in Esto­nia making its acti­vi­ti­es comp­liant with the ISO 9001:2008 inter­na­tio­nal mana­ge­ment sys­tem stan­dards.

One of the main pri­nciples of OLE dea­ling with railway safe­ty has always been making infor­ma­tion rela­ted to the work of the orga­ni­sa­tion acces­sib­le to eve­rybo­dy inte­res­ted. “Cer­tain­ly, both OLE mem­bers and the sta­te aut­ho­ri­ti­es, minist­ries and orga­ni­sa­tions that are our part­ners are inte­res­ted to know how is spent the money they have pro­vi­ded to OLE,” said Tamo Vahe­mets, Chair­man of the Mana­ge­ment Board of OLE, who added: “The cer­ti­fica­te is defi­ni­tely a token of valuab­le recog­ni­tion that pro­ves also to our part­ners that their money has been well spent by OLE. This, on the other hand, crea­tes excel­lent con­di­tions for con­ti­nuing our coo­pe­ra­tion.”

Ain Noor­mä­gi, chair­man of the board of AS Met­ro­sert cer­ti­fying OLE’s acti­vi­ti­es, said that he can only welco­me the ini­tia­ti­ve on behalf of the non-pro­fit orga­ni­sa­tion for making its daily acti­vi­ti­es comp­liant with the ISO stan­dards, as in addi­tion to the con­fi­dent rela­tions with part­ners it helps the orga­ni­sa­tion to give a dee­per meaning to its daily work. “We hope that the­re will be fol­lowers to the good examp­le of OLE,” said Ain Noor­mä­gi whilst pre­sen­ting the cer­ti­fica­te to Tamo Vahe­mets.

Ina ddi­tion to infor­ma­tion on OLE’s work, the Inter­net home­pa­ge of OLE (www.ole.ee) also dis­plays the audi­ted financial sta­te­ments of the orga­ni­sa­tion. “We find it extre­mely impor­tant to ensu­re the trans­pa­rency of the use of funds by associa­tions and orga­ni­sa­tions ope­ra­ting in the non-pro­fit sec­tor. This is why we sup­port making the pub­lica­tion of annual financial sta­te­ments man­da­tory,” said Vahe­mets.

OLE is a non-pro­fit orga­ni­sa­tion foun­ded on 19 Novem­ber 2004 that fol­lows the pri­nciples of Ope­ra­tion Life­sa­ver Inc. (www.oli.org) foun­ded in 1972 by the Ame­rican Associa­tion of Rail­roads, Natio­nal Cor­po­ra­tion of Rail­road Pas­sen­gers and Rail­road Pro­mo­tion Ins­ti­tu­te and is an affi­liate of this orga­ni­sa­tion.
