Banagas has been awarded OHSAS 18001:2007 certification after having successfully passed both stage one and two of the audit requirements.
Representatives of the certification body have expressed their complete satisfaction for Banagas's occupational safety, health and environment management system. No non-conformities have been discovered throughout the sections and departments which were subject to the auditing process.
