ISO 45001 health & safety standard obtained over 12 months early
We are excited to announce that through our continued commitment to health & safety, we have been accredited with ISO45001 over twelve months before the transition deadline.
ISO 45001 replaces OHSAS 18001 in March 2021 with the old standard being withdrawn. The new occupational health & safety management system standard aims to reduce injuries and disease in the workplace.
Shaun Howard, Health & Safety Manager, Powerday says: “We are proud to be one of the first waste management companies to obtain the new standard. We recognised the importance of the transition from OHSAS 18001 to ISO45001 and had included that as one of our key health & safety objectives for 2019. This accreditation illustrates our aim of taking a proactive approach to risk control helping us to be market leaders and recognised by our clients and supply chain alike to be as progressive as we can be. Our well implemented management system displays our ardent approach to H&S and continual improvement which ultimately will help us to reduce workplace illness and injury and as a result increase productivity.”.
