KPS Quality Health Safety & Environment

Quality

In 2012 KPS achieved the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2008 accreditation for Quality Management Systems in the UAE. KPS are committed to the goal of repeating this accreditation throughout the group by December 2013.

It is easy for an organisation to claim they are great but harder to measure the actual quality of an organisation.

ISO 9001 accreditation removes much of the guesswork as it provides a company with a set of principles that ensure a common sense approach to the management of its business activities to consistently achieve customer satisfaction. Organisations with ISO 9001 accreditation are underpinned by the following eight principles:

  • a customer focused organisation
  • leadership
  • the involvement of people
  • ensuring a process approach
  • a systematic approach to management
  • a factual approach to decision making
  • mutually beneficial supplier relations
  • continuous improvement

Health & Safety

KPS attaches great importance to the Health and Safety of its employees and all other persons who are affected by it activities. Furthermore, we believe that a successful health and safety culture is dependent upon effective collaboration between the company and its clients. Therefore KPS has established a climate in which the positive aspects of safety are encouraged and developed.

In 2012 KPS achieved the internationally recognised OHSAS 18001 accreditation for Health and Safety in the UAE. KPS follow the same principles throughout the rest of the group with the aim of achieving complete organisational compliance by December 2013.

Environment

In 2012 KPS achieved the internationally recognised ISO 14001 accreditation for Environmental Management Standards in the UAE. KPS follow the same principles throughout the rest of the group with the aim of achieving complete organisational compliance by December 2013.

The Middle East is constantly showing awareness for the ever fragile environment. KPS implements wherever possible the requirements set down by the United States Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED as it is more commonly known.

KPS have built a number of projects with official LEED accreditation throughout the Middle East and follow the same principles wherever design and budget permit.

Social Responsibility

KPS believes it is better to be proactive towards a problem rather than reactive to a problem. Social responsibility means eliminating corrupt, irresponsible or unethical behavior that might bring harm to the community, its people, or the environment before it has the opportunity to happen.

As part of the community we feel it is essential to involve ourselves and assist where possible with local charities and events.

Some of the charities we are currently supporting include:

  • Riding for the Disabled
  • Breast Cancer appeal
  • Médecins Sans Frontières
  • Domestic Violence in Bolivia
  • SOS Children’s Villages
