The OHSAS (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) certification identifies the International occupational health and safety management system specification standard.

The certification of conformity attained by Burgo Ardennes certifies the voluntary application of a management system within the organisation granting adequate control, as well as strict and effective management of Health and Safety of people engaged in work, besides the full respect of current regulations and Company's values.
