OHSAS 18001 is an international occupational health and safety management system specification. It has been developed to help organisations meet their health and safety obligations in an efficient manner.
Why did we adopt this standard?
OHSAS 18001 was implemented as part of our risk management strategy. It establishes an overall sense of direction and sets the principles of action for our organisation. It also helped us to reduce the risks associated with health and safety for our employees and clients in the work environment. Above all, it demonstrates our diligence and commitment towards good and responsible health and safety management.
What does it mean to you?
The benefits are substantial. Choosing to work with an OHSAS 18001 accredited company guarantees that your projects are being delivered by a conscientious and responsible organisation.
Working with an organisation which is consistently identifying and controlling its health and safety risks reduces potential risks for accidents, meets legislative requirements and improves their overall performance as a result.
RoSPA Gold Medal
GI Solutions Group also holds its 9th consecutive a Gold Medal award in the prestigious RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity, launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement. The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011 are sponsored by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), the leading health and safety professional examining body.
