Aggreko, the leading supplier of temporary power, heating and cooling solutions, has made a positive start to the year, by achieving the new ISO 45001 international standard for occupational health and safety (OH&S).
The company has gained the accreditation less than a year after it was first announced; it superbly evidences the company’s robust health and safety management system.
The new accreditation is a direct replacement for the existing OHAS 18001:2007 standard.
Following a stringent audit process, whereby companies require senior management teams to actively demonstrate commitment to OH&S, Aggreko showcased its company-wide knowledge of OH&S processes to guarantee a safe workplace environment is maintained.
By achieving the new standard, Aggreko will ensure that its OH&S performance will continue to improve, its OH&S management system will fulfil legal requirements, as well as achieve agreed OH&S objectives.
For its customers, this standard stretches to Aggreko’s systems, providing further reassurance that its power, heating and cooling solutions are of the highest industry quality.
ISO 45001 is applicable to any organisation looking to establish, implement and maintain an OH&S management system.
The news completes a successful 12 months for Aggreko, after it was awarded both the updated ISO quality management and ISO environmental management standards in 2018.
The company’s latest accreditation emphasises its continued and unrivalled focus on quality, health and safety and environmental (QHSE) procedures across the sector.
Martin Williams, Head of QHSE at Aggreko (pictured), commented: “This achievement firmly establishes Aggreko as leaders in risk management within our sector. It demonstrates the emphasis, importance and commitment we place on the environment, quality management, and health and safety across our businesses.
“We are delighted that our strong leadership values around these important areas have been officially recognised, giving our customers assurance that risk is managed and minimised prior to arrival and installation.”
