Hartalega has once again proven its commitment to the highest quality standards, as the Group recently attained OHSAS 18001:2007 certification.
Awarded by TUV SUD Asia Pacific TUV SUD Group, an audit and management systems certification body, OHSAS 18001:2007 is an internationally recognised standard which sets the requirements and best practices for occupational health and safety management systems in an organisation. The Group was previously awarded ISO 14001:2004 certification as a result of its outstanding environmental management system.
Mr Kuan Mun Leong, Managing Director of Hartalega said, “The OHSAS is a testament to our group’s commitment to the well being of all Hartanians. As we continue to grow our business aggressively, being able to provide a quality work place in the aspects of health and safety is very important.”
The OHSAS 18001:2007 certification was achieved through Hartalega’s comprehensive range of health and safety measures, which include internal workplace audits, risk assessments, behaviour observations, accident and incident investigations, work permit issuances, training sessions for emergency preparedness and environmental performance monitoring, amongst others.
“As important as it is to focus on productivity and efficiency, it is equally as crucial to ensure that our employees work in a safe environment. We aim to continuously enhance Health, Safety and Environment initiatives throughout the Group for the benefit of our workforce,” concluded Kuan.
