GWC Marine has received three ISO certifications - the ISO 9001:2015 certification for Quality Management System, ISO 14001:2015 for Environmental Management System, and ISO 45001:2018 for Occupational Health and Safety Management System.
GWC Marine is a leading shipping agency in Qatar representing International Shipping Lines (Container), RO-RO, Tanker, Break-bulk and Bulk vessels at all seaports in Qatar.
The company said it is “delighted” to have been awarded ISO 9001:2015 certification, an internationally recognised standard that ensures their products and services meet the needs of customers through an effective quality management system.
“This certification reaffirms the company’s ability to consistently provide quality products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements,” GWC Marine said.
ISO 14001:2015 certification is an acknowledgement of its commitment to continually evolve its environmental management system, while ISO 45001:2018 looks at occupational & health safety measures.
The ISO 14000 Environmental Management standard requires companies to actively manage their environmental responsibilities. By identifying any opportunities and risks, companies must endeavour to improve their resource efficiency, reduce waste and closely measure and manage the overall environmental impact of company decisions.
ISO 45001:2018 is a globally recognised occupational health and safety standard to help organizations improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create safer working conditions. Achieving ISO 45001:2018 certification exemplifies GWC Marine’s commitment to its employees, community and customers, and to continually improve and evaluate its work environment.
ISO is one of the most rigorous and well-regarded standards in the world and receiving this accreditation demonstrates GWC Marine’s persistent focus on creating cutting-edge industry-leading services, measured against global benchmarks of industry excellence.
GWC Marine has been extremely diligent in complying with policies and standards, keeping quality at the forefront of their operations resulting in increased efficiency in handling the shipping line’s requirements, the customer’s needs and the market as a whole.
Pradeep Kumar, senior director (Shipping Services) at GWC said, “Receiving this accreditation demonstrates our ongoing commitment to quality and continuous improvement through an effective quality management system, a journey that began with certification of our parent organisation some years ago. We fully understood that technology is only as good as the quality system and team behind it.”
