MMDC receved International Organization for Standardization re-certification for Quality Management System (ISO 9001:2015), Environmental Management System (ISO 14001:2015) and the migration from OHSAS 18001:2007 into ISO 45001:2018 (Occupational Health & Safety Management System).
All three certifications are testament to the unified, streamlined, and high-efficiency level of the business processes across MMDC’s management spectrum.
The ISO is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. The organization promotes worldwide propriety, industrial and commercial standards.
The Quality Management System is the standard as an integral part of an organization’s efforts towards sustainable development and promotes it as a tool for improving overall performance, while the Environmental Management System is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system.
The Occupational Health & Safety Management System certification, on the other hand, is mandated to all mining contractors.
“At MMDC we are constantly challenged to come up with efficient measures to constantly improve our business processes to ensure occupational safety and environmental sustainability. We achieve this by working closely with the communities within the areas we operate,” MMDC VP for compliance and tenement management Engr. Ramesh G. Paliza said.
