QBG passes IMS audit to win three certifications
QBG has received ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications
Following the successful completion of its first Integrated Management System (IMS) audit, Qurum Business Group (QBG) has now received three globally-recognised certifications from GCAS Quality Certifications, one of the world's leading international certification bodies.
The certifications that QBG has won include ISO 9001 for Quality Management, ISO 14001 for Environmental Management, and OHSAS 18001 for Occupational Health and Safety Management.
The accreditation will enable QBG to enhance its operations, monitor group-wide procedures and streamline business performance.
Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Ahmed Al Hosni, vice chairman and president of QBG, said: "The certifications are the culmination of the dedication of the entire group as we worked together to gather evidence of QBG's best practice procedures.”
“By demonstrating our commitment to continuous improvement, the certifications outline a roadmap for QBG to increase performance, customer satisfaction and employee safety,” Al Hosni said. “Achieving international standards in three of the required categories is a major step forward for QBG, and reflects the hard work and commitment of each and every one of our employees."
ISO certifications are awarded following a rigorous independent audit procedure that analyses every aspect of company management systems to identify potential risks.
QBG provided extensive evidence and samples of its sites, functions, products, services and processes to meet the stringent criteria.
The ISO 9001 certification focuses on QBG's ability to consistently provide customers with a product that meets expectations while also identifying and resolving areas of potential weakness.
In order to meet the ISO 14001 criteria, QBG displayed its environmental management framework and the procedures by which the company actively reduces harmful effects on the environment to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste and minimise costs.
By implementing an Occupational Health and Safety Management System, QBG has demonstrated to regulators, customers and employees that the company operates in accordance with the latest legislation and maintains a commitment to assuring the safety of employees and the wider public.
With over 40 years of experience, QBG today employs more than 4,000 professionals throughout its operations, which include construction, engineering, landscaping, facilities management, and financial services.
