Quality management systems have certain specific requirements and are used when an organisation wants to demonstrate its ability to provide products that meet the needs of customers and current regulations, thus promoting customer satisfaction.
The ISO 14001 standard is a certifiable norm, attesting to compliance with certain stated requirements. ISO 14001 certification is not mandatory, but rather stems from a voluntary choice by a company/organisation which takes the decision to establish/implement/maintain/improve an environmental management system.
This standard demonstrates that the certified organisation has an appropriate management system to monitor the environmental impacts of its activities, and systematically seeks improvement in a coherent, effective and above all sustainable way.
OHSAS 18001: 2007 is a standard for managing occupational health and safety (OH & S), and was designed to provide an answer to this need.
Certification according to this standard enables companies to carry out responsible risk control, and to consistently increase safety and health in the workplace, with the aim of protecting employees from any potential dangers.
