Cleanway Gets Certified for Health and Safety

Cleanway Environmental Management Solutions, Inc. (CEMSI) North Plant has been awarded ISO 45001:2018 certification in recognition of its occupational health and safety management. Priority is always given to the safeguarding of health and safety protocols in the workplace. Such prerequisites are imperative in the production, logistics, and systems at work especially when handling, treating, and disposing of hazardous industrial and medical wastes in this time of the pandemic.

This certification focuses on a preventive program requiring intensive employee protection and collaboration from the management team. The ISO 45001:2018 offers amendment in the High Level Structure (HLS) through its standardization of structure, definition and terminologies thereby facilitating simplified integration into other management systems like ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. It has an increased focus on the context of the organization and its risk recognition. More so, wider recognition of individuals covers not just permanent employees but also subcontractors and suppliers. While the legal and regulatory compliance guidelines address all phases of the PDC cycle, the certification further requires greater involvement and commitment from the top management team. This ensures that health and safety is part of the company’s integral strategic planning.

“CEMSI takes pride in its commitment to the international standards in handling and treating hazardous waste. Our certification for ISO 45001 is a testament to a greater effort to fulfill our mission for the people who take care of the environment. This builds more confidence among our partners as we take health and safety standards to a higher level,” said Jose Exiquel Esguerra, Managing Director.

“ISO 45001 is a set of standards developed to guide the company towards a goal of curbing unsafe practices within the workplace. Having it is both an honor and responsibility. The certification increases awareness on all aspects of health and safety which is timely in this time of the pandemic. We show to our clients and to other stakeholders that the business is safe at all times with a heart and concern for its employees and partners,” said Antonio Celajes, Regional Operations Head for Luzon under the Operations Division.

Cleanway Environmental Management Solutions, Inc. (CEMSI) is the country’s first fully-integrated hazardous waste treatment plant for industrial and biomedical wastes. It opened its first plant in Silang, Cavite in 2004 followed by its southern Philippines facility operating in Leyte Industrial Development Estate (LIDE) in Isabel, Leyte. Recently, the northern plant operations opened in 2019 with a treatment facility in Capas, Tarlac. CEMSI holds certification on ISO 9001:2015 for quality management system and ISO 14001:2015 for environmental management systems.
