Just In Time Group (JIT) took the proactive decision of getting itself complaint with Sri Lanka Standards Institution (SLS) SLS 1672: 2020 certification standard for COVID-19 safety management systems requirements.

Just In Time Group was awarded this certification for their excellent safety levels and methodologies in carrying out its safety measures.

The key reason for this certification for JIT is to ensure the right safety processors and precautions are in place to mitigate any risks due to COVID-19, as health and safety came into the forefront during this pandemic for all citizens and businesses

In preparing for the SLS safety management systems requirements, the Administration and Human Resource teams of JIT took the lead in auctioning the COVID19 Health and Safety procedures for the organization in compliance with the SLS standard ensuring continued maintenance of the safety measures currently in place.

“This certification strengthens and reinforces our commitment to our staff and our customers by ensuring that the proper safety standards are in place and maintained at its highest levels during this time.” said Sherene Goonetilleke, Chief Operating Officer of JIT.

JIT operates on a COVID 19 safety policy which details the preparedness and response efforts of the company. This policy helps the company stay abreast of guidance from government health agencies and WHO standards and incorporate those recommendations and resources into workplace-specific plans.The purpose of obtaining the COVID -19 Safety Management System is to ensure that the stakeholders of an organization are safeguarded from any risk or threat due to potential exposure to COVID-19 through its activities and services.

This System assures the safety of the people of an organization, including the staff and visitors, through implementation of a risk management process, and it builds up confidence among the stakeholders in management and mitigation of the risks or threats adequately.

The benefit of SLS mandated COVID-19 safety protocol is that stakeholders can be assured that the right safety standards are being followed, as JIT understands the level of service, they need to maintain to their customers, even during COVID-19.
