Commitment

Our operations began in 1985, and we have since continuously expanded both in business and in size. The company’s success would not have been possible without our commitment to Quality, Safety and Environment, Garde holds certification for all three major ISO Management Standards:
ISO – 9001 for Quality
ISO – 45001 for Safety
ISO – 14001 for Environment

ISO 9001

Quality Focus

We have created a strong quality-focused culture, based on the Continual Improvement Paradigm. The core values of Garde’s quality culture are to continually increase client satisfaction, respect the worksite, maintain the company’s corporate image, and to ensure our workers have the highest level of training. We have stringent quality assurance procedures in place, and a comprehensive system of internal audits, as well as a comprehensive set of engineering tools, processes, and guidelines outlined to ensure that our services comply with all requirements. Garde acquired our certification in 1996 for ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard, and we have since retained and complied with all its requirements.

Compliance

  • ​The use of advanced statistical tools is one of the key aspects to Garde’s operational supremacy over our competitors.
  • Garde’s matured auditing system enables the sites to not only be audited by competent auditors, but also given scores based on the audit results. The scoring model is then used to define the key performance indicators for our operations.
  • Garde’s client feedback system uniquely quantifies and scores our client’s satisfaction level, which has invaluably supported our company in continually improving our operations.
