Aarsleff successfully migrated to new BS ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems standard
Aarsleff Ground Engineering, along with its sister company Centrum Pile Ltd, has successfully migrated from the OHSAS 18001 to the new BS ISO 45001 standard. Aarsleff are one of the early adopters of the updated standard, which was published in September 2018.
This new international recognised standard is the first ISO standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems builds on the concepts of the previous OHSAS 18001:2007. The award certification measures the robustness of the occupational health and safety management system within a company, including aspects such as preventing work-related injury and the proactive improvements of its OH&S Performance.
For Aarsleff to update to the new standard, the company took part in a four-day extensive audit to recertify its existing (18001, 14001 & 9001) management systems before successfully completing the one-day migration audit to the new BS ISO 45001:2018.
Speaking about the Aarsleff’s award of this certification, Robert Speakman, the Company’s Safety, Training, Environment & Quality Manager said:
“It is testament to our continued commitment and improvement of our occupational health and safety systems to be recertified and updated to the new ISO 45001 standard.”
“Aarsleff puts the safety of its employees, partners and users of its sites as their highest priority, with it being encompassed within our core values. By achieving this accreditation, Aarsleff can provide a greater level of confidence that working with Aarsleff is a choice well made.”
The certification compliments Aarsleff’s existing BS EN ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems and BS EN ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems certification.
