KYOCERA America Inc. Maintains OHSAS-18001 Certification
July 31, 2014
Kyocera America Inc. recently announced that it has passed a surveillance audit for OHSAS-18001, the international standard for occupational health and safety management systems. The audit verifies Kyocera America Inc.’s success in upholding OHSAS-18001 requirements continuously since its initial certification in September 2013.
“Kyocera is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all employees,” said Bob Whisler, president of Kyocera America Inc. “OHSAS-18001 certification has proven to be effective in systematically minimizing the risk of accidents and work-related illnesses, which is a priority for Kyocera operations worldwide.”
OHSAS-18001 imparts a methodology to health and safety by assessing potential workplace hazards and incorporating preventive measures into daily operations.
The surveillance audit that Kyocera America Inc. passed requires the certification body to discern whether Kyocera’s management system is functioning well in everyday operations—including whether all incidents are recorded; whether all associated measurements are made; whether all corrective and preventive actions are properly recorded and implemented; and whether the company’s top management is committed to supporting the OHSAS-18001 system.
