The EQMS consists of interactive processes which together aim to show consistency in Service Provision, Customer Satisfaction and our commitment to protect and preserve the environment.

We view these as a primary responsibility and to be the key to good business in adopting appropriate quality, environmental, health and safety standards.

Our EQMS Policy calls for continual improvement in its quality, environmental, health and safety management activities and business will be conducted according to the following guiding principles.
