Sonic approved for certification to ISO14001, OHSAS 18001 standards
VANCOUVER, BC-Sonic Environmental Solutions, in Vancouver, has been approved for certification under the leading international standards for environmental management systems and occupational health and safety management systems, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:1999. The approval for certification followed an independent audit by the British Standards Institute (BSI), a leading quality management systems registrar. The registration process began this past June, said Sebastian Cattaneo, Sonic's environmental, health and safety manager, "at which time BSI performed on-site operations assessments and protocol examinations. The BSI team concluded a three-day final audit on September 9th when it recommended Sonic for approval which we have now received." Cattaneo added that "the audit focused primarily on our commercial PCB Sonoprocess(TM) facility currently operating at a site in Delta, BC. To ensure consistent compliance with ISO and OHSAS," he concluded, "BSI will routinely monitor Sonic's operations." ISO 14001 specifies the requirements for an environmental management system as developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), while OHSAS 18001 is an assessment specification for occupational health and safety management systems (OHSAS).
