Quality, Safety and Environmental Management

Fenix is certified against ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 for both office and field based work, including exploitation and disassembly of munitions.

The company is a strong believer in the value of formal systems, recognizing that they are tools and, like any tool, they can be used well or poorly.With over 15 years of experience of implementing certified systems in mine action (ELS was the first company in the mine action industry to obtain ISO 9001 certification specifically for mine clearance work) the company is constantly looking for opportunities to improve its systems and reflect the changing requirements of circumstances, conditions and clients. Fenix welcomes open and honest feedback on its work and is committed to addressing any shortcomings and building on positive aspects of what it does.

David Hewitson is closely involved in the development and dissemination of quality management principles and practice across the industry through involvement in the updating of international standards and participation as an instructor with GICHD in workshops on ‘Quality Management in Mine Action’.   Workshops on quality in relation to mine action, land release and information management have so far been delivered in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, India, Jordan, Lao PDR, Vietnam, South Sudan and Thailand as well as in Geneva as part of the Partnership for Peace program, with participants coming from almost every mine and UXO affected country.

Fenix sees and encourages the emergence of new trends in relation to environmental management and aspects of safety systems, and is already working with partners and clients to develop improved systems for field implementation.
