GEZE UK is setting new standards having achieved the ISO 45001:2018 accreditation for Health and Safety, one of the first in the industry to gain the new award and the first of GEZE’s worldwide subsidiaries to gain the accreditation.
ISO 45001 is an international standard that specifies the requirements for a management system that uses robust and effective processes for improving work safety in global supply chains and is also the world’s first international standard for occupational health and safety.
Designed to help organisations of all sizes and industries, ISO states that the new international standard is expected to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses.
The four-stage process presents a vigorous certification route to document the company’s efforts towards implementing change and applying checks and balances to ensure that standards are met.
The achievement follows the company’s previous successes when it achieved ISO 9001 – quality and the ISO 14001 environmental standards.
Said Kaz Spiewakowski managing director of GEZE UK: "This is a huge achievement and it should be acknowledged that this was achieved through the efforts, hard work and determination to improve the business by every member of the company.
It is only through this constant desire to improve and excel, that GEZE UK continues to change for the better ensuring that the safety of our people, assets and anyone we work or interact with is a priority."
