e2v aerospace and defense achieves key certifications in its health, safety, and environmental programs

e2v aerospace and defense (e2v a&d) today announced that its Santa Clara operation has achieved two key certifications; ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System certification and OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational Health and Safety Management System certification. These certifications complement the e2v a&d integrated management system already in place which has been certified to AS9100B, ISO9001:2008, and MIL-PRF-38535.

ISO 14001:2004 provides the requirements for an Environmental Management System and by complying with this standard, e2v a&d will:

  • 1) identify and control the environmental impact of its activities, products and services
  • 2) continuously improve its environmental performance
  • 3) implement a systematic approach to setting environmental objectives and targets, including being able to demonstrate that these objectives have been achieved.

This standard provides a holistic, strategic approach to the environmental policy, plans and actions for e2v a&d.

OHSAS 18001:2007 provides a guideline for an Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management System applicable to any organization. By obtaining certification to this standard, e2v a&d commits to an OH&S management system that minimizes risks to employees and visitors and assures that e2v a&d can demonstrate to others the conformance to its OH&S policy. In addition, e2v a&d will implement, maintain, and continually improve its OH&S management system.

“e2v aerospace and defense continues to improve its processes and procedures to minimize our environmental impact and reduce the risks inherent in our business”, said Ron Miller, Corporate VP of e2v aerospace and defense. “Our management systems undergo constant review and modification to meet the latest safety and environmental requirements, and this is clearly demonstrated by our certification to these two important industry standards.”
