“At Brother, we are always looking for effective ways to improve our processes, services and quality for our partners, our customers, as well as the community and the environment”, states Martin Featherston, President of Brother Canada.
In order to efficiently implement an environmental policy, the challenges set forth included the reduction of waste for key business processes, applying internal energy saving measures, optimizing office paper use as well as promoting internal recycling initiatives. The certification process was helped by standards already set by the Brother Group’s environmental policy and its “5R” concept: refuse, reduce, reuse, reform and recycle.
The health and safety certification took place following the implementation of several internal programs, such as a health and safety management plan, emergency procedures, monthly safety internal audits, and an employee first aid program. The health and safety certification confirms Brother Canada’s commitment to ensure the welfare of all its employees and others (including visitors, contractors and the public) that may be affected by its operations.
Moody International conducted these official audits. For more information about Moody International, visit http://www.moodyint.com/
