Achieving ISO in Cambodia & Myanmar
Wednesday, January 25, 2017
Establishing an efficient EHS (Environment, Health & Safety) system in an emerging country is never an easy task. Lacking government policies and little to no awareness about environmental concerns are usually quite common in such newly developing countries, guaranteeing a certain degree of culture clash when introducing a system that suddenly breaks well-established practices that have never really been questioned before.
Overcoming the odds, Jebsen & Jessen Cambodia and JJ-Pun have received the certification conformance to the ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 Health and Safety Management System in July and August 2016 respectively. The internationally recognised certifications were awarded by Bureau Veritas, a premier global provider of system certifications to a number of management system standards.
New EHS challenges are expected in the fast-evolving landscape of the emerging markets. However, Jebsen & Jessen Cambodia and JJ-Pun have caught the spark of having an efficient EHS system in the workplace and are now advocating it as front-runners in their local markets. “I am very proud that we have achieved the certifications in our emerging markets and would like to thank the Management, especially the EHS Committees for their dedication to the health and safety of our staff. The team had continuously pushed themselves to complete the implementation of an EHS system for only one reason – to ensure our colleagues can return to their families every day safe, healthy and happy,” said Group Manager QMS & Projects, Xaver Rustemeyer.
