Veolia North America's (VNA) used oil regeneration site in Saint-Hyacinthe, QC, recently achieved a rare and exceptional accomplishment in management system certifications : three international standards from the British Standards Institution (BSI).
"We are thrilled to have received the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental, ISO 9001:2015 Quality and ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety certifications," said Martin Bouchard, Plant Manager. "It was a long and arduous process that took us around three years. These certifications are truly a reflection of our employees' commitment to the environment, to health and safety and to our customers. I'm very proud of our entire team for their efforts to reach this goal, and even during the global pandemic."
The plant worked closely with the Operational Excellence and Environment, Health and Safety departments as well as with Veolia's entire global network of experts to adhere to the highest industry standards, while always maintaining an availability rate of 95%.
Built in 2013, Veolia's Saint-Hyacinthe facility is the first used oil regeneration plant in the province able to infinitely revalue oil waste and oil filters. With the capacity to repurpose 95% of incoming waste products, Veolia's used oil regeneration plant helps businesses and industries adopt strong circular economy models that increase profits and protect resources.
