OHSAS 18001: because safety is one of our priorities

March 11, 2016 Uncategorized

BIA has received the OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Services) certification for the operations carried out on the mining site of a customer in Senegal. Obtaining this international certification, on the topic: “all maintenance activities of mining and associated equipments“, rewards the implemented measures and the efforts made to prevent and to ensure the health and safety of our employees on site.

This is also a sign of quality and professionalism for our customers.

This certification is only a first step. In deed, the same measures are applied by BIA on every mining site.


What is the OHSAS 18001 norm?

 The OHSAS norm 18001 defines the method for applying a management for health and safety at work. The objective is to gain a better risk management strategy to lower the amount of accidents, to improve performance and to comply with the legislation.
