Port Shepstone, South Africa, 22 June 2022


The need to foster and maintain a culture of compliance in these fast-moving and uncertain times has never been so important. Rather than an exercise in enforcement, Arxada, a global leader in wood treatment technologies, views regulatory compliance as an opportunity to create an environment in which staff can shine and contribute towards the long-term success of the company.

In the same line of thinking, the Arxada Global Quality team adopted the ComplianceWire®️ online training platform in 2020 to further improve its training data systems and controls. In April 2021, Arxada's Wood Protection business division in South Africa followed suit and incorporated ComplianceWire®️ into the company's Independent Development Programme.

"Introducing compliance training that promotes individual accountability across all sectors of our business makes regulation more than a necessary evil, instead, it is a vehicle through which our staff can excel. With ComplianceWire®️ we have a reporting system that ensures our company meets regulatory requirements while providing opportunities for employee development," said JJ du Plessis, the senior regional sales manager at Arxada, trading as Arch Wood Protection South Africa.

To date the learning portal has proved to be a valuable tool for training onsite staff in the ISO procedures, which are developed in line with the ISO 9001:2015 specification requirements.

It has also been beneficial for the training of production staff who are exposed to the manufacturing environment where high levels of safety and awareness is constantly required.

"By utilising the most advanced training platforms in our business, our staff understand the role they play - individually and collectively - not just in meeting their compliance responsibilities, but in retaining the organisation's good standing within the industry. The more we embed ethical values into our business behaviour, the less the likelihood of an unforeseen lapse or accident," concludes du Plessis.
