Following an audit by Lloyd’s Register we have recently achieved ISO45001:2018 certification, the new international standard for occupational health and safety management, replacing our previously held OHSAS 18001 standard.
Whilst the overall aim of the two standards remains the same - reducing risks and ensuring the safety of wellbeing of everybody involved in our activities - the new standard has a much more proactive approach to health and safety, with a wider scope and also a focus on leadership, employee engagement and awareness.
ISO45001 certification requires the incorporation of health and safety aspects into the overall management system, allowing for a focus on identifying and controlling risks. There is also an emphasis on all kinds of health in the workplace, including mental wellbeing.
The new certification joins our ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 accreditations from Lloyd’s Register that demonstrate our robust quality management systems (QMS) and environmental management processes.
We are delighted to have successfully completed the migration assessment to the ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Standard. This is an excellent achievement and is a testament the commitment of our site teams in delivering the highest of health and safety control and management across our sites.
