EBC achieves ISO 45001 certification


By Johanne Laurin 21 April 2023

At EBC, decisions are made daily on our job sites and in our offices that prioritize health and safety as it is a core value that allows us to work in the best possible working environment.

Our 2023 strategic deployment aims to solidify our Canadian leadership position by prioritizing health, safety, environment, and quality while holding us accountable for our actions.

As such, we have reached a new milestone, having recently achieved ISO 45001:2018 certification, an international standard in occupational health and safety. This standard was adapted by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to be awarded to organizations that aim to improve employee safety, reduce risks in the workplace and create better and safer working environments.

Additionally, our ISO 9001:2015 (quality) certification that we have held for over 26 years, and our ISO 14001:2015 (environment) certification, obtained in February 2022, have been renewed, thus confirming our teams’ commitment and actions geared towards maintaining a stimulating and safe work environment for all.

The auditor from the CWB Group met more than fifty of our employees, from construction sites to our management team and assessed our management systems (quality, OHS and environment) during a three-week period. This allowed us to demonstrate that health and safety is a well-established value at EBC and such.

While many strengths were identified during the audit, we need further control of our systems while implementing all required improvements. You are the key participants in this endeavour and, together, we will execute them with rigor while remaining mindful of the safety of our employees and our collaborators, the quality of our work and respect for the environment.

This honor crowns your continuous, active, and positive participation in all corporate activities and in our combined well-being.
