Facilicom UK celebrates greater health and safety accreditation
Facilicom UK has been certified to British Standard (BS) OHSAS 18001:2007 by SGS; a market leading UKAS accredited certification body. The award demonstrates the contractor's commitment to continually improving its health & safety performance, since the Standard is a framework for occupational health & safety management systems.
It helps businesses put policies, procedures and controls in place to help them achieve the best possible working conditions and workplace health & safety.
"It is very satisfying to achieve this accreditation," says Daniel Looney, the company's safety, health, environment & quality director at. "It follows a lot of work by the whole team. I have worked closely with a cross-section of the company to deliver a meaningful management system, which genuinely improves the business and will continue to drive improvement in the months and years ahead."
Jan-Hein Hemke, managing director at Facilicom UK, says: "We are pleased to have received this important accreditation; however, we won't stop here. We will be developing our management systems further with the aim of developing a culture and structure in which we cause no significant harm to people or the environment."
Following its audit SGS stated: "Following a 10-day initial audit, SGS was happy to recommend Facilicom UK for certification to OHSAS 18001:2007. The company has adapted the implementation of the systems in a staged approach dealing with any issues/discrepancies along the way. The strong and effective management team were consistently able to demonstrate their commitment to health and safety throughout the audit, leading to having an effective and motivated workforce."
