CDN Systems Passes ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 Three Year Recertification

CDN Systems receives renewal certification for ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 after its three year re-certification audit in May of 2014.  These certificates demonstrate CDN's commitment to protecting the environment and the well being of their employees.  
Here, an excerpt from CDN's health and safety policy:

CDN Systems is dedicated to preventing not only injury or ill health of our work staff, but also to prevent impact to the environment. The management and staff at CDN Systems are committed to the belief that most items can be reused or recycled in some fashion and while the company exists to make a profit, it has a positive impact on the environment by reselling and recycling equipment the original owner no longer wants.  Through this model CDN dedicates itself to reducing its negative impacts on the environment and to prevent pollution whenever possible while keeping employees safe.  For CDN there is no aspect of its operation of greater importance than the health and safety of the employees.   From the front desk receptionist to the recycle center employee and everyone in between including drivers and staff out on pickups, safety is everyone’s priority.

In order to achieve these ideals, CDN has implemented and maintains an EHS Management System that conforms to the requirements of the ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 standards and complies with applicable EHS legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes that relate to EHS.  The EHS Management System provides the documented framework that has been implemented and is maintained, including a process for setting and reviewing EHS objectives, and management review with the purpose of continually improving EHS performance.  Each and every employee’s contribution is vitally important to the success of this program and CDN pledges to train, support and encourage everyone to have the resources required for successful implementation.

Veteran's Day 2011

On Veterans Day, CDN Systems joins America in saluting our brave men and women in uniform. Veteran's Day is celebrated on November 11th and was originally called Armistice Day to commemorate the fallen soldiers of World War I. The date was chosen to coincide with the cessation of hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in World War I, which occurred on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.  In 1954, the name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day and now honors all veterans including the approximate 20 million living in the United States today.  Thank you all for your service and sacrifice.
