The North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Corporation was recently recertified for three globally recognized management system standards in quality, environment, occupational health and safety.
“Our efforts to improve the company’s processes, preserve and sustain the environment, and care for the well-being of our workforce and other stakeholders have again been benchmarked against international standards,” remarked NLEX Corporation President and General Manager Luigi Bautista.
The tollway company received the latest version of certifications ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and ISO 45001: 2018 from DQS Holdings GmbH for the effective implementation of its integrated management systems (IMS).
NLEX secured its first ISO certifications in 2008 and were renewed in 2011 and 2014 after it had successfully passed surveillance audits.
The Integrated Management System (IMS) collates the NLEX Corporation’s systems and processes into one framework, enabling the organization to work and implement the different processes with streamlined objectives.
“Getting the ISO 9001:2015 assures our customers of our commitment to continually adhere to the highest standards in our operations,” noted NLEX Corporation Chief Operating Officer Raul Ignacio.
On the other hand, “The ISO 14001:2015 confirms our compliance to environmental responsibilities, and the ISO 45001: 2018 validates our efforts in creating a safe working environment,” he added.
The current certificates, valid until November 2021, cover the design, development, construction, operation and maintenance of toll roads.
“These certificates are testaments to our collective efficacy as well as our pursuit to enhance customer satisfaction and deliver the services our motorists truly deserve,” Ignacio stressed.
Apart from the DQS certificates, the NLEX Corporation was also awarded with IQNet certificates of the three standards.
