SON certifies Proton Security


Proton security has been awarded the coverted ISO certificate, by the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON).

“The ever challenging security needs and requirements have made it mandatory for organisations to establish and implement a robust management framework to guaranty effective security performance and improvements in terms of customer satisfaction and have a more assured security services in all ramifications,” Joseph Odumodu, Director General, Standard Organisation of Nigeria said at the awards presentation to Proton.

Odumodu said Proton has joined the lofty class of quality management system certified companies in Nigeria.

Louis Njoku, Director Laboratory services representing Odumodu, stressed that the only way to maintain relevance, remain competitive and gain more market share in the global market and more importantly guarantee the security of its clients is through provision of acceptable services thus making the NIS ISO 9001:2008 standard key for achieving successful business and security results.

According to Njoku the new model of quality management system standard to which companies are being certified , have shifted emphasis from conformity to rules and regulation to actual performance output which aims at the development of a quality management system that is customer focused and provides for continual improvement with emphasis on accuracy and effectiveness.

Presenting the certificate, with number 000335 to the management of Proton security, Njoku urged the company not to relent as the certificate was more of a “loan” that can be withdrawn if the existing structures currently in place for the certification should breakdown and corrective measures are not taken on observed non-conformances.

“Proton security would have to note that this journey to excellence that it has embarked on, does not have an end, as quality is a moving target”, Njoku added.

Bode Oke, Chief consultant, Top3 concept, acknowledged the commitment of the entire management, especially the internal auditor. He equally implored the management to ensure effective maintenance of the existing which has earned them the award.

Congratulating the management of Proton Security for the certification, Adesuyi Clement, Lagos State Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) noted that it came about as a result of hard work, dedication and commitment.
