HEALTH & SAFETY
At the core of our business
Oricol is one of the few environmental services companies in South Africa to attain the following prestigious certifications on all of the sites on which it operates.
Oricol undertook the certification of its Environmental Management System to the ISO 14001 Standard, and official certification was first received in April 2007 from the SABS (EM140426).
Such a programme ensures that our clients will benefit both directly and indirectly as the risk of environmental liability is greatly reduced.
We take our responsibility to the health and safety of all employees very seriously. The diverse nature of Oricol’s activities and the locations in which they are carried out make human and material risk prevention one of the company’s central concerns.
Oricol’s intentions, as far as risk prevention is concerned, are backed up by effective, ongoing policy and shop floor-based action plans aimed at:
- Anticipating problems by identifying potential risks and possible responses
- Equipping our employees with the skills to understand and manage occupational risks
- Making risk prevention part of company management.
Oricol has certified its Health and Safety Management System to the ISO 45001 standard to clearly demonstrate the commitment to the health and safety of its employees, contractors and members of the public.
ISO 9001 Quality certification was achieved on 22 July 2009.
In 2011, Oricol was awarded second place in the SABS Presidents award. This is a national competition which recognises the improvements in the company’s financial performance due to the ISO systems it has implemented.
