Greentech Lead America: Canadian Solar announced that its subsidiary, Canadian Solar Manufacturing Ontario, has received the OHSAS 18001: 2007 health and safety management system and ISO 14001: 2004 environmental management system, certifications of conformance.

The internationally recognized certifications were authorized by TUV Rheinland, a premier global provider of systems certification to a number of management system standards.

Canadian Solar opened its Guelph, Ontario manufacturing facility in January 2011. The facility is the largest solar panel module manufacturing plant in Canada.

Canadian Solar is one of the few PV solar makers to implement a fully integrated 3 Tier management system obtaining full compliance certification for the ISO 9001 Quality Standard, ISO 14001 Environmental Standard and the OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety System.

These certifications obtained by Canadian Solar Manufacturing Ontario are in addition to the module manufacturing facilities in China which are certified to these certifications which are in good standing. As a result, Canadian Solar has achieved international recognized high standard of environmental, health and safety management for all of its facilities globally.

Concurrently, Canadian Solar Manufacturing Ontario is now approved for products listed on the British Board of Agrement (BBA) MCS certificate BBA 0030, supplying PV modules to the UK market as well.

ISO 14001 gives people an avenue to raise environmental issues and makes it clear that environmental performance is an important part of the corporate culture.

By reviewing the procedures for controlling significant operations, including a review of emergency preparedness and response procedures, organizations are able to identify and implement significant safety improvements.
