SpanSet Achieve ISO 45001 New Management Standard

SpanSet Limited is proud to announce we have successfully achieved the transition to ISO 45001, the world’s first global Health and Safety Management System.

This new accreditation replaces our previous British Standard OHSAS 18001.

ISO 45001:2018 is a globally recognised Health and Safety standard developed and published by the International Organisation of Standardization (ISO). ISO developed this standard to help organisations to proactively improve their safety performance, reduce workplace risks, and create safer working conditions.

Combined with our existing ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System & ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System, this additional accreditation confirms our position as a performing market leader worldwide.

Whilst achieving the additional ISO Certification, our customers can have confidence in SpanSet’s ability to provide a service that is Safe, Reliable and of good Quality. This will allow SpanSet to access new markets, with improved Health and Safety performance and more besides. This will help hold or reduce cost and satisfy our customer’s requirements.

Damian Flynn, SpanSet’s QHSE Manager says “We are very proud to have achieved the brand-new ISO 45001:2018 Certification. Achieving the ISO 45001 Certification was a rigorous and in-depth process over the last twelve months, requiring the participation of our entire organisation. On the 14.10.20, the British Standards Institution (BSI) performed our final migration audit, where we successfully achieved 100% against the mandatory clauses of the ISO 45001 standard. BSI then notified SpanSet of our achievement of the successful transitioning to ISO 45001 from OHSAS 18001. Our new Certificate was presented to us on the 21.10.20”

Maintaining SpanSet’s ISO 45001:2018 Certification will require comprehensive bi-annual audits through our third-party certifying body “BSI” to ensure compliance with the standard.

Achieving ISO 45001 Certification has been a rigorous 12 month process with participation required throughout the entire organisation.
