Environmental and Safety Management
Environmental and safety management systematically manages the requirements of the organization and its projects with respect to environment, safety and occupational safety. Organizations are increasingly integrating environmental and safety management with other aspects of company management, such as quality management.
Apple Vision works according to quality, environmental and safety management system standards, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. These standards lead to more effective operation and management of projects, leading to higher quality of work and reduced accidents, costly environmental clean ups, among others. Also, the environmental and safety management systems have led to increased environmental and safety awareness among employees in design and consulting and other daily activities in and out of the workplace.
Benefits of Environmental and Safety Management
The benefits of incorporating environmental and safety management systems are significant. Managing the requirements systematically reduces risk, lowers operating cost and improves overall performance. This in turn leads to increased customer trust, as well as the organization’s image and the health and safety of employees.
