OUR ISO JOURNEY
The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certification is significant; by providing confidence for the principle contractor and defining targets to achieve international operating standards.
ISO 9001:2015 [Quality Management System]
The company embarked on achieving certification in May 2016 through system design and implementation. The Standards Association of Zimbabwe issued certification in March 2017. Bitumen World is the first company to achieve this certification in Zimbabwe.
ISO 45001:2018 [Occupational Health and Safety]
In similar fashion, the company set about attaining certification through system design and implementation in 2018 and duly achieved this in September 2019, again the first company to achieve this in Zimbabwe. This brings benefit to both Client and Employee and enables both to enjoy mutual benefit in the pursuit of “Zero Harm”.
ISO 14001:2015 [Environmental Management]
This is the latest endeavour by Bitumen World with respect to ISO certification; being sought in the category of Environmental Management. While working in an industry which breaks ground and employs hazardous materials, responsible management is required to best protect the environment.
