BS OHSAS 18001:2007 – We are accredited!

4 Mar

Yes, we are blowing our own trumpet!  We have just been successful in attaining the BS OHSAS 18001:2007 accreditation.  I believe, but I’m not 100% sure, that Abate is the only pest control company in this region – apologies if this isn’t correct and please feel free to tell me and I will redress the statement.  This not only underpins our commitment to safety and compliance to improve our working environment, it is also beneficial when writing tenders.  Anyway, should you be interested in exactly what the accreditation is, please read the blurb below:-

Organizations of all kinds are under constant pressure to comply with occupational health and safety regulations and perform in line with their policy. This accreditation sets out the minimum requirements for a best practice occupational health and safety management system helping organizations to control their hazards and risks, while boosting their performance.

How does it work then?

BS OHSAS 18001:2007 helps us implement a sound occupational health and safety management system so we can reduce any risks to personnel and put the right safety measures in place. The standard continually looks at the best ways to improve and maintain health and safety systems and ensures we comply in line with all our company policies and procedures. It improves our overall working environment and the conditions of employment to our staff.

*           Acquiring this international standard will broaden our business opportunities

*           Demonstrate due dilligence, good governance, low risk and a competent management that is commited to health and

safety in the workplace

*           BS OHSAS 18001:2007 will raise both the performance and morale of our staff to deliver our services to existing

customers.

*           It ensures we look after our most valuable asset which is our employees

*           Gives potential clients assurance of our effective risk management procedures and full regulatory compliance

*           Promotes safer working environments by heightening adherence to our health and safety policy and procedures

*           To improve efficiencies in health and safety budgeting for costs such as further training, ensuring that the money is well

spent and related to the real needs of the company

*           Provides reassurance to clients and employees that we are taking all reasonable steps to protect the business against

damage to our reputation and breach of legislation
