SSG is awarded two international accreditations in close succession

Following on from our successful reaccreditation to the International Environmental Management System (ISO 14001) in September 2021, we have added to our list of industry accreditations with ISO 45001:2018, the latest international standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S). Achieving this accreditation demonstrates our continued commitment to proactively improving our safety performance in order to prevent accidents, injury and ill health.

The requirements for the ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety standard were developed by the world’s health and safety bodies and a group of industry health and safety experts. The risk-based approach is designed to anticipate hazards – rather than just react to incidents. Companies applying for accreditation must demonstrate that they have a robust Occupational Health and Safety system which is designed to improve the health and safety of both employees and other personnel working with the company.

SSG was awarded ISO 45001 following a rigorous four-day auditing process which was conducted by DAS Certification, a leading global provider of certification services. To achieve accreditation, companies are required to consistently maintain a safe and healthy workplace, and to continuously look for areas where further improvements can be made. As part of the assessment process, each factor that could potentially affect employee health and wellness is scrutinised and optimised for excellence.

James Draper, Safety, Health & Environmental Manager at SSG, comments: “We believe that health and safety is everyone’s responsibility, and the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees and contractors is paramount. Maintaining the highest standards of occupational health and safety requires successful leadership, planning, effective teamwork, resources and operational control. All of these areas were rigorously assessed as part of this accreditation process.

“The achievement of this standard – which comes less than two months since we gained recertification to ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems standard – clearly demonstrates to our employees, contractors, stakeholders and investors that health and safety lies at the heart of our operations.”
