Sahicasa - The Company

Sahicasa is a company that was founded in 1961 in Tarragona, under the name of SEDYF. It is one of the oldest companies in Catalonia and in Spain. The experience gained over these 50 years of business activity is an asset that is highly valued by our customers.

In 1961, the company was authorised by the "General Direction of Health of the Ministry of Governance" to carry out rat control, disinfection, and pest control. 

Later, in 1970, it was authorised by the "General Direction of Stockbreeding of the Ministry of Agriculture," and the following year, by the "General Direction of Agriculture" belonging to the same Ministry. Our mission is to provide our customers with the products and services they require, when and how they require them, while ensuring maximum safety for people and respect for the environment.

The company currently works with two commercial brands: SAHICASA offers Pest Control and Environmental and Personal Hygiene services and HIGIENAL provides Water Control and Environmental services.

Technical means

SAHICASA'S great challenge is to be able to offer its customers the latest worldwide advances in the sector, in technology and in effective products that respect the environment. This is why, when carrying out our services, we use the most up-to-date, newest resources, tools, machinery, methods and technology in the sector, to be able to offer a very broad range of treatments and services correctly, safely and in a way that respects the environment. 

Some of the latest acquisitions have been specifically made to be used in the comprehensive fight against urban pests, but above all in areas of special care, great sensitivity and attention. This is the case of temperature control, modified and controlled atmosphere, localised HEPA filtering, etc. systems. 

All the machinery comes with its operating instructions as part of SAHICASA's quality policy. Every year, it is calibrated as part of the machinery procedure to guarantee its optimum functioning and to guarantee the absence of errors in even the most delicate and demanding treatments.

Quality and Environmental Policy

 

SAHICASA is a company that is dedicated to offering services in the environmental hygiene area. Its main activities focus on the prevention and control of pests and the prevention and control of Legionellosis. It has a management system that integrates the requirements of the ISO 9001:2008 and the ISO 14001:2004 standards, which guarantees the quality of its services and sustainable environmental behaviour. The final quality of the service provided to the customer is the result of planned, systematic actions by means of which errors are envisaged, detected and corrected and work is carried out on the continuous improvement of the whole service process.

The contractual demands, the wishes and expectations of customers and compliance with current legal requirements, as well as any other requirements that the organisation may have voluntarily subscribed, are the main criteria when setting out the quality of our services and the necessary measures to minimise the environmental impact. Aware of society's growing concern for the environment and in keeping with its commitment to continuous improvement, SAHICASA has introduced several measures aimed at preventing undesirable effects on the environment. Respect for the environment and the wish to prevent contaminating actions are found in the responsible purchase of chemical products to prevent their expiration, the use of reduction measures in the consumption of natural resources, the selective collection of waste, recycling, the correct management of special and non-special waste and, mainly, in the application of the comprehensive fight against pests, which avoids the unnecessary use of products that are harmful to people's health and which prioritises the application of less contaminating available treatments.? ? In order to guarantee this policy, the Management establishes objectives for improvement every year. It decides on the actions to be achieved, sets the responsibilities, establishes the criteria for action and assigns the necessary resources. The improvement objectives must be quantifiable to be able to verify that they have been met. All the staff are informed about them, and they are periodically reviewed by the Management.?The application of this policy demands the involvement of all the staff, meaning that the motivation and training of all collaborators is considered to be a priority. The conviction that feedback with the interested parties is essential to obtain ongoing improvement has led to establishing several channels of communication aimed at facilitating external communication.

The principles of this policy are notified to all the levels of the organisation, as well as our suppliers, and are made available to our customers and any other interested party. ? In order to satisfy the demands of its customers and to minimise the impact that its activities and services may have on the environment, SAHICASA is committed to permanently complying with the principles of this policy.
