Making the World a Safer Place with Marcus Long, President of the Independent International Organisation for Certification (IIOC)

On this week's episode, join Seth Martin-Wick as he discusses the importance of accreditation with Marcus Long, President of the Independent International Organisation for Certification (IIOC). This week celebrates the World Accreditation Day where organisations around the world join to discuss how accreditation makes the world a safer place.

Each June organisations across the globe come together to celebrate World Accreditation Day. Established by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), World Accreditation Day focuses on how accreditation delivers a safer world ranging from the workplace to the comfort of your home. The importance of promoting global awareness on accreditation becomes more apparent as we progress into the future, and recognise trends of employee absence, turnover rates, occupational accidents, and work-related diseases are frequent.
