Managed IT services and solutions provider Meeza has announced that it is now certified for the ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.
The certifications were awarded to Meeza by SGS, Geneva. To be certified, Meeza said it underwent a rigorous evaluation process for its Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems.
Meeza CEO Ahmad Mohamed al-Kuwari said: “This is a major milestone in our journey towards improving Meeza’s Integrated Management System based on different standards’ requirements.
“The prodigious achievement not only proves our commitment to maintain high levels of internationally-recognised standards in applying comprehensive Quality, Information Security, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety Management, it will further strengthen our position as one of the leading managed security solutions service providers in the region as well.”
He added: “The two certifications are solid proof of our compliance and brings further credibility to our employees, customers, suppliers, partners, stakeholders, regulators, and the community at large that Meeza values and cares about health, safety and the environment.” ISO 14001 is the International Standard for Environmental Management Systems, which specifies the most important requirements to identify, control, and monitor the environmental aspects of any organisation.
This standard helps the organisation to control the environmental aspects, reduce impacts and ensure legal compliance.
OHSAS 18001 is the internationally-recognised standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, which enables an organisation to have control over, and knowledge of, all relevant hazards resulting from normal operations and abnormal situations, and improve its performance.
It can help organisation to put in place the necessary policies, procedures and controls to achieve the best possible working conditions and workplace health and safety, aligned to internationally recognised standard.
In addition to the two newly-awarded certifications, Meeza is also the first IT services and solutions provider in Qatar to achieve the certifications for ISO 27001:2013 (Information Security Management System), ISO 9001:2008 (Quality Management System), and the ISO 20000-1:2011 its IT-Service Management System.
