Géotec has for many years adopted a QSSE approach (Quality, Health, Safety, Environment) in order to improve its overall performance and offer its customers products and services of consistently high quality.
This approach has resulted in Géotec obtaining, through its various subsidiaries, ISO 9001 and 45001 certifications, COFRAC accreditations and OPQIBI and Qualiforage qualifications.
Staff regularly undergo training and have all the necessary qualifications to carry out major projects in the most challenging environments.
ISO 9001 and 45001
Certification procedures were initiated in 2014 for the Quality Management System (ISO 9001). Combining this with the OHSAS 18001 health and safety system, Géotec set up an integrated system in 2017. This has since been replaced by ISO 45001 certification.
Geotec is certified by the LNE according to the order of February 9, 2022.
Thus, Geotec meets the requirements of article 2 § II and annexes I, II and IV, in order to deliver certificates in the fields A and ATTESALUR, guaranteeing that pollution management measures have been taken into account in the design of the construction or development project [Art. R. 431-16 n) of the Code de l'urbanisme].
Géotec is certified by the Engineering Qualification Body OPQIBI, which recognizes our technical expertise in the fields of geotechnical engineering, the environment and structural diagnostics.
