Accreditations

an essential quality issue

In Africa, the inspection process is based on a series of essential accreditations that guarantee the quality, competence and integrity of inspectors. Various sectors, including manufacturing, healthcare and infrastructure, require inspectors to obtain specialized certifications in order to perform their role effectively.

Certifications such as ISO 9001 provide professionals with a comprehensive framework for implementing risk management strategies, fostering a culture of informed decision-making. The Association of African Inspectors (AAI) also plays a key role in promoting standardized training and certification programs for inspectors, ensuring that they have the skills required to meet the challenges specific to each region. By maintaining stringent accreditation requirements and promoting risk management certifications, Africa continues to improve the quality of inspections and enhance safety, reliability and compliance in its booming industries.

What is MASE?

MASE, an acronym for "Manuel d'Amélioration Sécurité, Santé, Environnement", is a standard designed to promote and improve safety, health and environmental protection within companies. MASE is specifically designed for companies operating in sectors where occupational risks are high, such as industry, construction or environmental services.

The benefits

  • Increased safety: MASE aims to reduce workplace accidents and incidents by implementing strict safety practices.

  • Improved occupational health: It promotes the protection of workers' health by identifying and minimizing occupational hazards.

  • Environmental protection: MASE incorporates measures to minimize the environmental impact of a company's activities.

  • Regulatory compliance: It helps companies comply with safety, health and environmental regulations.

Objectives

  • Accident prevention: The main objective of MASE is to prevent workplace accidents by identifying and mitigating potential risks.

  • Promotion of a safety culture: The aim is to establish a safety culture within the company, involving all personnel.

  • Compliance with standards: MASE ensures compliance with applicable safety, health and environmental standards.

Differences between MASE and other quality assurance standards

Unlike more general standards such as ISO 9001, MASE focuses specifically on safety, health and the environment. It is primarily aimed at companies facing high occupational risks, and focuses on the protection of workers and the environment.

MASE is aimed primarily at companies in the industrial, construction and service sectors wishing to reinforce their commitment to safety, health and environmental protection within their organization.

MASE certification is valid for 3 years, subject to regular surveillance audits. To renew certification, a renewal audit is required to ensure that safety, health and environmental standards continue to be met.
