Fellows International are pleased to announce that they have achieved accreditation to ISO45001:2018 and the company’s Occupational Health and Safety Management System has been approved and certified by the Lloyds Register. This builds upon Fellows’ current ISO9001:2015 accreditation to demonstrate our commitment not just to Quality but to Occupational Health and Safety. The scope of Fellows accreditation covers ‘Explosive Threat Mitigation capability delivery through the provision of advisory, training or operational support to governments, international organisations, commercial companies and the humanitarian sector worldwide’.
Published in March 2018, ISO 45001:2018 is the new international standard that cites requirements for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management Systems. The standard has been created to raise the bar for health and safety in the workplace and provides companies with a framework that will elevate the importance of OH&S. ISO 45001 helps an organisation mitigate risk and improve business performance through a safer working environment and a healthier workforce.
Fellows’ early adoption of the new standard recognises the company’s commitment to the health and safety of its workforce and demonstrates the importance of leadership and communication in managing the safety of our workers, suppliers and clients.
As a result, existing and potential clients alike can be assured that Fellows is proven to put health and safety at the heart of everything it does and that systems are in place to ensure that this high standard is maintained.
General Manager, Andy Ward said – “The award of our ISO45001 certificate from Lloyds Register proves that we take occupational health and safety extremely seriously. I firmly believe that good health and safety governance should run through the middle of everything we do and not be bolted on the side. Our OH&S Management system helps us to achieve this and ensures that everyone in the company can work in the safest possible environment”
