Cargohaus attains ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification


Cargohaus becomes the first public customs bonded warehouse in the Philippines to achieve the prestigious Environment Management System (ISO 14001:2004) and Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSAS 18001:2007), as it passed the stringent certification audit of TUV-SUD last 12 July 2013.
ISO 1400 and OHSAS 18001 takes special focus on employee health and safety conditions in the worklace and the preservation of the environment. In addition to its commitment to quality under ISO 9001:2008 certification, Cargohaus believes that they must also look and take responsibility on the welfare of its invaluable resources -- people and the environment.
The three-year journey towards this much coveted certification covers compliance to legal and regulatory requirements, identification of environmental aspects, health and safety hazards, and subsequent implementation of operational control to mitigate impact and risks. The key elements to the continuous improvement of these standards -- awareness and campaign, training, and coaching, were deployed throughout this journey as management and key stakeholders take their respective roles and deliver their contributions to the program.
Cargohaus’ adoption and implementation of ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 standards affirmed management commitment to HSE within its facilities. As it integrates with the existing Quality Management System (ISO 9001:2008), Cargohaus will continuously improve its system, empower its people and evolve alongside constant growth.
