Ascenty is the first data center company in Brazil granted the ISO 45001 certification
Certification consolidates the leader of the data center market as a Brazilian pioneer in corporate practices of excellence in occupational health & safety
With 28 dedicated units in Brazil, Chile and Mexico – 19 in operation and nine under construction – Ascenty, leader of the Colocation market in Latin America, is the first data center company in Brazil to receive the ISO 45001 certification for corporate practices of excellence in occupational health and safety.
To receive the certification, the company completed a 16-month process of tailoring its processes to the excellence standard required by the ISO 45001. “With eight ongoing construction projects across three companies and 24/7 operations, we needed a completely dedicated team to establish global routines and standards of excellence in occupational health and safety,” said Fábio Trimarco, Compliance Officer at Ascenty. “This certification allows us to stand out in the market as the only company in the Brazilian sector recognized for prioritizing the life and health of its workers, attesting to the quality of Ascenty’s services across the community,” he added.
The compliance process was supported by the Occupational Safety Department, led by José Carlos Queiroz. “The organization now has clear oversight of crucial issues that can impact operations both positively or negatively, ultimately allowing us to fulfill our responsibilities by combining service excellence and a constant focus on the zero-incident goal,” said Queiroz.
In addition to the ISO 45001, all of Ascenty’s facilities are rated Tier III – representing the data centers with the highest uptime in the market –, receiving more than 100 certifications for its standards of excellence in corporate social responsibility and environmental management.
