Climbing the certification ladder

Shelforce has achieved ISO 45001 certification, which replaces OHSAS 18001 and confirms the company provides safe and healthy working conditions, prevents work-related injury and ill health, and continually improves its occupational health and safety performance.

The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts and follows other management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.

Howard Trotter, Shelforce’s business manager, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have achieved the new ISO 45001 certification, as it shows our management system is the best. Our staff are hugely important to us, so it is absolutely vital that we provide them with a safe place to work. The ISO management system is also about being proactive about health and safety and continual improvement, which we strive for here at Shelforce.”
