Engineering, procurement and construction company ENGIE Fabricom UK Ltd has attained certification to the ISO 45001 standard for occupational health and safety.
The ISO 45001 certification provides a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions all over the world.
The UK arm of the international company, which has offices in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, and Stokesley, North Yorkshire, engaged Lloyd’s Register to undertake the assessment and certification.
ENGIE Fabricom UK already held the OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety standard and has transferred to the new ISO 45001 standard, which amongst other differences, has a stronger focus on the ‘organisation’s context’.
With ISO 45001, organisations will have to look beyond their own health and safety issues and consider what the society expects from them, in regard to health and safety issues.
The ISO is also intended to enable an organisation, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness and wellbeing.
