SHEQ


As Magalies Water we managed to retain our Vaalkop ISO14001 certification which is now in its third tri-annual period of certification.

The Environmental Management System (EMS) have been successfully rolled out to water schemes in the Eastern Area, which includes; Wallmansthal, Klipdrift, Cullinan, Temba and Roodeplaat Water Treatment Plants.

As part of roll-out of the EMS to the Area East, extensive audits in a form of first and second stage audits have been conducted by the certification body South African Bureau (SABS) to determine whether the implemented EMS is in compliant with the ISO 14001 standard.

We can proudly say Magalies Water Area East was granted ISO 14001 certification in December 2009.
