HEALTHY SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT
Edita puts its employees’ well-being at the forefront of its operations. Through establishing the Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) department, the company has successfully set rules and protocols that guarantee a safer work environment, and now incorporates the rigorous SHE policies into all standard procedures across its operations.
Edita also set out to receive top available international certifications in health and safety, and as of 2020 all of the company’s production facilities have received the Occupational Health and Safety Management System certification (OSAS 18001) and the Quality Management System certification (ISO 9001), proving adherence to international standards for health and safety and paving the road for a safer, more employee-conscious work environment.
Edita recognizes that to truly serve its customers and support Egypt’s economic growth, the company must structure its business in a way that reduces its ecological footprint and actively promotes environmental preservation. On the most basic level, Edita preserves the quality of people’s environment by locating all plants in industrial zones far from residential communities.
The company’s rigorous Safety, Health, and Environmental (SHE) policies and newly implemented Edita Risk and Environmental Management System (eREMS) help it to ensure all operations and procedures minimize environmental risk and include safe disposal of waste.
