Safety

At Geith International, our long-term success depends upon ensuring the Safety and Health of our workers, visitors to our operations, and the public.

We believe that a safe and healthy workplace is a fundamental right of every person and also a business imperative. Our Policy requires that we take responsibility for maintaining a productive workplace in every part of our Company. Our aspiration is for an incident free workplace, to reduce our impact on the Environment and produce Quality products for customers; this is evident through the establishment of our Integrated Management System. The Management System conforms to ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001(Environment) and OHSAS 18001 (Health and Safety), setting the standard for assessing all relevant risks across the company.

TQM MISSION STATEMENT

To proudly exceed customer expectations as leaders in innovation in a global attachment market

Achieving these ISO standards began in the year 2000 with the development of our Quality Management System through ISO 9001 certification. Accreditation to this system has created a strong focus on customers; identifying their requirements and aiming to enhance their satisfaction. The certification provides for the creation of procedures, records, objectives and policies.
In 2004 the Company received accreditation to ISO 14001 which showed a commitment to minimize any harmful effects caused by our activities on the Global Environment. The accreditation allows us to easily conform to regulatory requirements and continuous improvements are made to manage our environmental performance.

The Company integrated both standards in 2010 along with a Health and Safety Management system through OHSAS 18001, to complete our Integrated Management System. A focus is placed on leading indicators, e.g. consultation, inspections and drills to achieve a more pro-active approach to Occupational Safety and Health. Hazard identification and Risk Management are a key component of the system to reduce injury and ill health and conform to legislation as set out in the 2005 Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act and associated regulations and codes of practice.
