“Every organization would like to improve the way it operates, whether that means increasing market share, driving down costs, managing risk more effectively or improving customer satisfaction.
A quality management system gives you the framework you need to monitor and improve performance in any area of the organization.
Many organizations are implementing an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSAS) as part of their risk management strategy to address changing legislation and protect their workforce.
ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard that sets out how you can go about putting in place an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). The standard is designed to address the delicate balance between maintaining profitability and reducing environmental impact; with the commitment of your entire organization, it can enable you to achieve both objectives.”
We congratulate Dubai Civil Defence on its achievement and look forward to a great relationship with them for many years to come” Omar Rashid – Sales & Marketing Manager MEA”
