Safety first – Kronqvist Byggservice has received updated RALA certifications


RALA (Rakentamisen laatu) quality system certification is an impartial evaluation and approval procedure designed for the specific needs of the Finnish construction industry based on the ISO 9001 standard.

The certification can be directed towards the company’s quality management, environmental or safety systems.  

The certification targets one or more areas of the management system: 

  • RALA Laatu, quality certification, verifies the quality management system
  • RALA Ympäristö, environmental certification, verifying the environmental system
  • RALA Turvallisuus, safety certification, verifies the occupational health and safety system

Byggservice Kronqvist has the certificate RALA Laatu from 2020 and RALA Turvallisuus and RALA Ympäristö from 2023. An external audit is held annually to maintain the certificates.

RALA Laatu, Quality Certification

With the RALA quality certificate, we improve the productivity of the company’s quality system systematically and comprehensively. At the same time, the quality certificate is an indication of the level of the company’s operations for customers in the field. 

RALA Ympäristö

RALA’s environmental certification has been developed based on the ISO 14001 system to meet the special needs of the Finnish construction industry. The growing environmental requirements of construction can be difficult. Clear evaluation criteria for certification help to take control of the big picture and ensure that essential issues have been considered in business operations.

RALA Turvallisuus

The goal of safety systems is to take care of the health and safety of employees. The impartial RALA safety certification shows that the company’s safety systems and management of occupational health and safety issues are at a good level and that operating practices are developed systematically and responsibly. 

The evaluation criteria for the RALA safety certificate set clear requirements for the safety system, its application and further development. The certification has been developed from the ISO 45001 standard to consider the special characteristics of the Finnish construction industry.
