FALLS CHURCH, Va., December 08, 2021 – PAE, a global leader in delivering smart solutions to the U.S. government and its allies, announced today it has achieved two certifications through the International Organization for Standardization, or ISO. PAE now holds certifications for ISO 45001:2018, Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, and ISO 14001:2015, Environmental Management Systems.
PAE Interim President and CEO Charlie Peiffer said the ISO certifications are the culmination of hard work by stakeholders across the organization, led by the PAE Occupational Health, Environment and Safety team through its Ready, Set, Protect initiative.
“For 2021, we set a strategic goal of meeting these standards and certifying related corporate operations as a process improvement and to show the commitment we have to our employees and the environment,” Peiffer said. “I’m proud of the outcome of the ISO audit and the certifications we have been so diligent in working to achieve.”
PAE Director of Risk Management, Occupational Health and Safety + Environmental and Quality Stephen Easley, along with Occupational Health and Safety + Environmental Senior Manager Sam Frontera, led the effort to achieve the certifications.
“By meeting the stringent, internationally recognized standards for ISO certification, we’re showing PAE is leading the industry for healthy workplaces and environmental performance through the effective management systems we’ve established,” Easley said.
ISO awarded PAE the certifications after an extensive, recent audit that found PAE conformed to the certification standards. The assessment outcome report noted PAE’s “management system is well-crafted and provides a framework for meeting the organization’s compliance obligations and continual improvement,” commending the organization for leadership commitment, employee engagement and communications.
