Manica Group is proud to have obtained the Dekra ISO45001 Certification. SHEQ Officer, Michael Revill was overjoyed about the achievement, "We did it!!! Well done to everyone who has worked so hard to achieve this, we can all be very proud of this. Now to maintain it!"
The latest accreditation adds to the group's existing ISO 9001certification for its diligent and strict quality management systems.

The SHEQ team have also undergone gruelling quality and safety auditor training to ensure that all the various companies, services and work sites are compliant and shipshape when it comes to quality and safety processes.
Marketing and PR General Manager, Nolito Marques said, "Not only do these ISO certifications signal that Manica takes safety and quality very seriously, but it is increasingly a requirement with clients that we meet international safety and quality management standards. These management systems also create efficiencies in our operations, minimise injuries and accidents, while the strong focus on continuous improve and risk management ultimately improves our customer service delivery," Marques said.
ISO certification certifies that a management system, manufacturing process, service, or documentation procedure has all the requirements for standardization and quality assurance. ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is an independent, non-governmental, international organization that develops standards to ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency of products, services, and systems.
ISO certifications exist in many areas of industry, from energy management and social responsibility to medical devices and energy management. ISO standards are in place to ensure consistency. Each certification has separate standards and criteria and is classified numerically.
