Our Corporate Commitment
As an ISO:9001 (2008) and SABS accredited company, Unichem’s quality control procedures are audited regularly and updated in accordance with local legislation, ensuring the best possible service to our customers. We strive to conduct our business, social and environmental responsibilities with the utmost professionalism and, subsequently, we are fully committed to meeting, as a minimum requirement, all environmental, health and safety legislation and labour laws of the country.
In addition, we set ourselves rigorous internal targets that are an integral part of our operations. These are known as SHEQ (Safety, Health, Environment and Quality) targets. By continuously analysing and reviewing health and safety procedures, while at the same time optimising our operational processes and procedures so we can limit our carbon footprint as well as seek out the most technologically advanced products for a market that is ever increasing in demand to be safer, cleaner, and more environmentally friendly, our SHEQ targets ensure we create a safe environment for our employees while striving to meet and exceed customer demands at all times in terms of quality, delivery and reliability.
Furthermore, Unichem continues to make good progress as a Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) company, and is fully committed to providing equal opportunities and employment equity to all existing and future employees and actively promoting preferential procurement of locally produced goods and services from Exempted Micro Enterprises (EME’s), Qualified Small Enterprises (QSE’s) and black-owned and black women-owned enterprises.
We also want to give back to our community and, as such, we are proud contributors to various local and national welfare programs and social investment schemes, such as Nelson Mandela’s Children’s Fund and the I Care foundation.
