Safety, Health, Environment and Quality

Commitment

CEM publicly adopted an integrated policy for Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ), in January 2002, when it started the implementation of an integrated management system for SHEQ issues.

Safety, Health, Environment and Quality are CEM priorities. The company has been working to ensure safe and healthy workplaces for its employees and its contractors’ workers. To protect the environment and nature, ensuring sustainability for future generations, is one of the important company objectives. It is also a company’s goal to strive for business excellence, continuously optimizing processes and service quality.

An Integrated Management System is a structured approach to address sound management of economic, social and environmental issues, fostering continuous improvement in SHEQ issues, which results from the integration of the Environmental Management System, the Occupational Health and Safety Management System and the Quality Management System, developed in accordance with ISO 14001, ISO 45001, ISO 9001, ISO 14064-1 and ISO 20000-1 international standards respectively.
