KAEFER WANNER underwent a combined audit of their IMS and got their Quality, Environment and Health & Safety Management System certified by AFNOR, a renown international certification body based in France.
For a week and a half, KAEFER WANNERs HSEQ team accompanied the AFNOR auditors to several sites, workshops, offices and the logistics base.
Although this was not the first audit to the French HSEQ experts team, this time extra effort was required: not only were the new, process-oriented versions of ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environment management) to be implemented but also the BS OHSAS 18001 standard for Health & Safety Management was to be audited for the first time.
KAEFER WANNER has other health and safety management systems in place, however, the decision was taken to attach even greater importance to H&S by adopting the internationally recognized OHSAS 18001 standard. KAEFER WANNER expects that the new IMS will be more efficient and will be perfectly suitable for the company.
A huge thank you goes to all our French colleagues for their endeavor and congratulations on their successful certification process.
