OCS has achieved certification to the new international standard for occupational health and safety management systems, ISO 45001.
We are one of the first companies in the UK to achieve migration to ISO 45001. The certification, which covers the UK and Ireland, follows a five-month-long assessment by the British Standards Institution at 20 customer sites.
"This is a great achievement," says Andrew Gorton, Head of Quality and Compliance. "As well as being consistent with our core values of Care, Safety, Trustworthy and Expert, it demonstrates our commitment to compliance and continual improvement."
The new standard promotes a proactive approach to health and safety, and greater emphasis is placed upon leadership engagement and colleague consultation.
Andrew says: "By implementing the most up-to-date occupational health and safety standard, OCS will be seen as an elite category of business and be internationally recognised. It is a level of excellence that is acknowledged worldwide and will help set us apart from our competitors."
