GAJ Awarded Two Global Standard Certifications

GAJ have been awarded two certifications by the British Standards Institution (BSI).

The ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Monitoring System provides a framework for providing guidance to employees with regards to appropriate health and safety practices in the workplace and to monitor and improve employee health and safety. It further provides guidelines to employees responsible for construction activity monitoring as appropriate to our scope of services in specific compliance with legal obligations as defined by the local authorities.

The ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Monitoring System certification confirms that GAJ meets international industry environmental standards as appropriate to our scope of services and provides a framework for monitoring environmental friendly practices in the workplace as well as those monitoring construction activities and compliance with legal obligations as defined by the local authorities.

These monitoring systems were awarded following a successful two stage assessment process by BSI and is being integrated with the company’s existing ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System, which the company has held for ten years.

“These awards reflect our commitment to excellence in everything we do and are directly aligned to our values that put our employees very firmly at the heart of everything we strive to achieve. We are very conscious of minimising our environmental footprint and developing our business in a safe and sustainable manner,” said Ricus Van Zyl, Partner. “These awards show that we are achieving the highest standards in both of these important areas and we are delighted to have received the accreditations.”

BSI is among the most respected and reputable management systems certification bodies in the world and are accredited by more than 20 local and international bodies. They are renowned for their marks of excellence including the consumer recognised BSI Kitemark™ and have been assessed against internationally recognised standards providing assurance that the certificates they issue are both credible and impartial.
