Jet Aviation Houston has received certification confirming that it meets the requirements to establish, document, implement and continually improve its environmental, health and safety management systems in accordance with ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.
ISO 14001 is a continuous improvement standard designed to help an organization reduce its impact on the environment and OHSAS 18001 is a safety initiative intended to reduce workplace injuries. Implementing the two systems required Jet Aviation to meet detailed criteria and receive approval through an independent auditor. Houston is the fifth Jet Aviation U.S. operation to receive the internationally recognized certification, along with Boston/Bedford, Mass., Palm Beach, Fla., St. Louis, Ill., and Teterboro, N.J.

"We are pleased to announce our ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications at our fifth U.S. FBO location,” said John Langevin, vice president, FBO operations, North America. “JSafety and the environment is a top priority for Jet Aviation.
