Lahore (Muhammad Yasir) All three manufacturing facilities of Dawlance have been awarded the ‘Trusted Workplace’ certificate for its COVID safe work environment, after an audit that was voluntarily conducted through DQS – the globally trusted assessment partner for quality-focused companies in every industrial sector. As an independent third-party, DQS has endorsed that the work-environment, products and services of Dawlance fulfil all the safety standards. Dawlance is the first appliances manufacturing company in Pakistan who is certified as Trusted Workplace.
Dawlance is the leading technology brand in Pakistan and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the 3rd largest manufacturer in Europe – Arcelik, Turkey. Its parent-company decided to engage the experts of DQS, for a COVID-19 Safe-Practices Audit, at all its subsidiaries outside Turkey. Arcelik Subsidiaries are now entitled to use the GC Mark Logo on their products’ packages, so the consumers are assured that Dawlance is a highly responsible enterprise, where organizational health, consumers’ safety and environmental sustainability are the top priorities. During the recent audit, the DQS auditors have verified our compliance with international standards – an achievement to be proud of!
The Chief Executive Officer of Dawlance – Umar Ahsan Khan congratulated all the stakeholders and personnel of the enterprise, on this remarkable achievement and stated that: “The COVID-19 pandemic is a global socio-economic challenge. Arcelik and Dawlance have a firm belief that the resourceful corporate and industrial sectors must play a vital role in safeguarding the nations from this public-health crisis. Being certified as a Trusted Work Place by DQS reflects our commitment to provide a healthy and hygienic work-environment for our workforce and consumers.”
In the month of July 2020, the Dawlance plants participated in and successfully qualified the ‘Trusted Workplace Certification’ for COVID19. This comprehensive audit was conducted according to the tailor-made audit checklist prepared by DQS, keeping in view different Management System Standards that would be used for ‘Trusted Workplace Certification’.
