Roscoe Certifications: Stretching to New Heights

Stretching is an important part of the continuous improvement process – sometimes literally, as when we implemented pre-shift stretching for our team members on the advice of a safety consultant.

Metaphorically speaking, stretching is how we ensure that we are constantly upping our game when it comes to providing the highest quality service for our customers and protecting the health and safety of both our customers and our team members.

Why We are ISO Certified: How Quality Management Creates a Quality Work Uniform Service

When we made the decision to adopt and hold ourselves accountable under the international system of quality management standards known as ISO, we knew it wouldn’t be easy.

But we also knew the value of putting ourselves to the test of third-party scrutiny of our processes. That is built into the culture at Roscoe. We seek out independent confirmation of our efforts wherever there is a credible organization to do it.
