This time the initiative has been on the quality system, receiving IMS accreditation at first attempt in accordance with the Quality Management System – ISO 9001:2008, Environment Management System – ISO 14001:2004, & Occupational Health & Safety – 18001:2007.
The specialty of the initiative has been that of integrating three systems into single management system. What helped Sembcorp Salalah in achieving this milestone in such a short span of time was that it had always been maintaining and improving its management system since COD aiming to achieve ISO certifications to support the business call and to further improve efficiency as well as to provide the stakeholders the confidence that they are the part of a professional group.
The Audit Body of GCAS Quality Certifications assessed the Integrated Management System in Sembcorp Salalah Power & Water Company SAOG and Sembcorp Salalah O&M Services Company, LLC and found them to be in accordance with the requirement of the standards of International Organization for Standardizations (ISO) and the International Occupational Health & Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS).
While the ISO certification implies fulfillment of Quality Management System in achieving customers’ satisfaction the OHSAS demonstrates the conscious determination of the organization to safe guard its employees and the environment conservations.
The IMS Core Committee led by Mr. Rakesh Kumar Jha as MR and the staff worked tirelessly in putting to gether the documentations supporting accreditation requirement through a process of last six months. Preparing the employees for the audits, ensuring implementation of the procedures and instituting an overall mind set for quality framework has been a real challenge.
