Leading construction and infrastructure player Aggregate Industries has achieved international certification from the British Standards Institution (BSI), receiving the ISO 45001 Standard in Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems.
This comes after the company demonstrated its commitment to proactively working to protect its employees.
ISO 45001 is the world’s first International Standard for occupational health and safety (OH&S), providing a framework to increase safety, reduce workplace risks and enhance health and wellbeing at work, enabling an organisation to proactively improve its OH&S performance.
Mike Belson, Health and Safety Director at Aggregate Industries UK, commented: “Achieving this certification gives us a great sense of pride as it further shows our commitment to putting health and safety first in all that we do as an organisation.
“We are proud to have a strong health and safety culture, whereby our employees are encouraged to take an active role in their own OH&S.
“Looking ahead, we will continue to work hard to further reduce workplace incidents and ensure our colleagues can return home safely each day.”
This follows on from Aggregate Industries’ successful certification early this year from the BSI of ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems, after demonstrating its company-wide commitment to energy efficiency.
