Hedcor cited for quality, safety and environmental management
Davao City (19 June) -- HEDCOR, Inc. has been re-certified by the Certification International Philippines for quality management system (ISO 9001:2008) as well as for environmental management system (ISO 14001:2004) for its operation and maintenance of hydroelectric power plants.
Adding a feather to its cap is Hedcor's first certification this year for occupational health and safety management systems (OHSAS 18001:2007) for the same scope.
The three certificates will be valid for three years until April 11, 2013 for all five Hedcor-owned hydropower plants in Talomo, Davao City and ten in the province of Benguet.
As a certified organization, Hedcor is required to maintain its Integrated Management Systems in conformity to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 standards.
In a letter to Engr. Chris Fernando Faelnar, Hedcor's senior vice president and management representative, Certification International Philippines' Managing Director Renato V. Navarrete conveyed satisfaction for Hedcor's Integrated Management Systems "as an instrument for enhancing the competitiveness of your organization and for meeting your customers' needs and expectations".
The certificates may be extended after their three-year validity period based on the company's effective integrated management system to be determined by a re-assessment audit.
"Hedcor is embarking on a new journey to improve its information security management system anchored on ISO 27001:2005 in its passion for excellence. This will be a very challenging endeavor ahead but doable!," Hedcor's Internal Audit Department Manager Jun Nicanor said. (Hedcor/Sly Quintos) [top]
