- It helps companies create better and safer working conditions for their employees, while serving as a benchmark of expertise and excellence for its operations
Safety Management Systems take time to develop and evolve into sustainable safe work practices and procedures. They are the foundation that build an unbreakable culture when established, while they encourage organizations to have a strong commitment to continue improving their safety standards.
Every year the safety management system of Ferrovial Construction Canada’s (FCAA) undergoes several audits conducted by third party auditors together with the company’s team. In 2014 it was awarded the international certification OHSAS 18001:2007 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series). And now, 6 years later, it has been awarded the International ISO 45001:2018 standard for its safety management system in Canada after successfully completing the auditing process without any issues.
This new distinction is an internationally recognised standard which requires organisations to identify, manage and strictly control health and safety risks in their workplace, and create better and safer working conditions for their employees.
“Adding ISO 45001:2018 is a fantastic achievement and highlights our commitment to providing the highest standards of safety as part of our culture. We will continue to cultivate the improvement of our procedures to demonstrate a forward thinking, proactive approach, resulting in a positive impact for our workers and stakeholders”
Ferrovial Construction Canada also holds the ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management system) and ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management system) standards, both awarded in 2012 and recently re-certified in 2018.
The company has also established and maintained an ISO 9001: 2015 certified Quality Management System for Highway 407 East Extensions Phase I and Phase II projects in Canada. In addition, both certification projects have been successfully transferred to Cintra for maintaining both concessions for the next 30 years.
