DGC is pleased to announce a recent change in the structure of its entities for ISO 45001:2018 occupational health and safety certification.The certification which was previously for a subsidiary, Dickinson Furnace Services has been extended to the holding company; Dickinson Holdings. Dickinson Holdings has implemented and maintains an occupational health and safety management system according to the above mentioned standard, allowing its subsidiaries’ processes and systems to be equally audited and certified.
This change was effected during a recent surveillance audit with DEKRA Certification (Pty) Ltd. The audit was very successful, and determined that DGC's management system continues to comply with the requirements for ISO 45001:2018 management system.The company’s systems continue to comply with the standard in terms of the following amongst other requirements:
Defining and establishing operational control in accordance procedures, and documentation to ensure that the necessary outputs are achieved.
Support processes with people, necessary infrastructure and suitable environmental conditions, together with monitoring and measurement resources.
External service provider management.
Performance evaluation of its processes and client satisfaction.
The next sections will give more information about the company’s commitment to safety.
