BESIX Contracting is ISO 45001:2018 certified for all the entities and sites of the Business Unit*.

The certification was granted in December 2020 by the certification body SGS, after an in-depth audit and with the contribution of all our teams under the coordination of our BPS (Business and Project Support) and QHSE (Quality, Health & Safety and Environment) departments.

The ISO 45001 certification, which relates to health and safety at work, covers for BESIX Contracting all design, build, operation and maintenance of construction projects in the countries where our Business Unitoperates.

Frédéric de Schrevel, General Secretary: "The ISO 45001 certification, which replaced the OHSAS 18001 standard, demonstrates to BESIX Contracting's clients and partners that Excellence is at the heart of our working and management methods. They can count on us for services that meet the highest standards, wherever they are in the world, and especially in terms of health and safety at work for our teams and subcontractors".

ISO 45001 certification is part of the Group's social commitment to optimum health and safety performance. The certificate is available on our internet and intranet sites.

SGS concluded its audit report by underlining the high level of alignment of BESIX Contracting's management system with the relevant international standards, as well as the good implementation of clear processes with a view to continuous improvement.

BESIX Contracting is ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and VCA** certified and our teams will make every effort to obtain the new certifications by July 2021.
