edotco Pakistan, an integrated telecom infrastructure services company, has become the first Tower Company in Pakistan to achieve ISO 2018 Certification.

ISO 45001:2018 is a globally recognized occupational health and safety standard developed by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) that guides organisations on minimising the probability of accidents, illness, injury, or fatality caused by workplace hazards. The certification, awarded following a rigorous audit, is a testament to edotco’s relentless focus on workforce wellbeing.

Commenting on the achievement, Country Managing Director of edotco Pakistan, Mr Abdul Aziz, said, “Achieving ISO 45001:2018 certification exemplifies edotco’s commitment to its employees, supply chain, community and customers. By continuously evaluating and improving the safety standards and processes, we aim for the industry’s highest benchmarks. We owe this recognition to our employees who continue to push the company forward, with their participation, dedication and commitment”.

“Our people’s health and safety are of utmost priority.” Mr Talat Qamar, Director Operations, edotco, said. “We continuously focus our efforts in ensuring occupational health and safety measures are implemented across all operational verticals. We provide the best personal protection equipment and training to our team members, working on tower installations across different challenging geographical terrains, and we are proud to have an exemplary record in workers’ safety.”

Mr. Talat Qamar added, “ISO 45001:2018 certification is valid for three years and requires comprehensive audits by edotco’s internal teams and validation by a third-party certifying body to ensure conformance with the standard. Programs developed within the company to minimize the risks related to working at height, electrical safety, transport safety, and COVID-19 helped edotco to achieve this certification.”
