ENGIE Fabricom UK achieves ISO 45001 certification on the first attempt.
We recently underwent a process of migration from the OHSAS 18001 standard to the new ISO 45001 standard with Lloyds register and were successful with no non-conformances identified.
ISO 45001 is an International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organisation to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health.
ISO 45001 is intended to be applicable to any organisation regardless of its size, type and nature. ISO 45001 enables an organisation, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/wellbeing.
The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts, and follows other generic management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. It takes into account other International Standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organization’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO’s international labour standards and conventions.
Kevin Copley, HSEQ Director for ENGIE Fabricom comments: “We have been advised that we are one of the first organisations in our industry sector in this region of the UK to be certified to the standard by Lloyd’s Register. This is a fantastic achievement for the Company.”
