Environment, Safety and Quality

Environment

For CESI, preventing pollution, minimizing the environmental impacts of its
activities and compliance with applicable legal requirements are fundamental requirements. Our Environmental Management System is the framework for ensuring we minimize our impact upon the environment. It sets out the resources and training that are needed, and the controls that must be in place to ensure the company’s operations limit their impact on the environment.

Health and Safety

Safeguarding the health and wellbeing of employees and contractors is also core to the company’s operations, and is defined in our Health and Safety Management System.

Quality

CESI aims to provide the highest quality products and services, with a
Quality Management System based on the following principles:

  • A focus on customers
  • Employee development
  • Continuous improvement 
  • Mutually beneficial relationships with suppliers
