Qatar Airways is proud to recognise its commitment in preventing work-related injuries and improving the wellbeing of its employees by attaining ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management System certification, awarded by Bureau Veritas. The certification was achieved through various preventative measures including the implementation of risk assessments, trainings and regular inspections of adherence.
Over a period of 28 days, a number of criteria were assessed by Bureau Veritas before awarding Qatar Airways Group with ISO 45001:2018, including an independent testing analysis by eight auditors across eleven locations. The assessment involved interviews of airline employees during the evaluation period to ensure compliance with the industry standard.
