Recycling business awarded ISO 45001 certification
A family-run business, Casepak, is one of the first-ever recycling firms to have been awarded the new ISO 45001 certification.
Casepak, which operates two recycling facilities in Leicester, has a long-standing record of outstanding performance under the existing OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety Management System and wanted to exceed its commitment by migrating to the rigorous new ISO 45001:2018 standard soon after it was published in March.
“Health and safety has always been an integral part of the business and we recognise the many hazards and challenges that operating within the recycling and waste management industry presents,” said Compliance Manager, Elizabeth Mott.
“Casepak adheres to our ‘Think Safety, Act Safely’ ideology and this has been demonstrated by the collective effort of all employees to achieve ISO 45001 certification. Attaining this new standard is a huge achievement and we will continue to maintain our outstanding record – well done team!”
The company’s ISO 45001 certification is subject to a three-year cycle of external surveillance visits.
ISO 45001 sets out to provide a robust and effective set of 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 state that the new International Standard is expected to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses around the world.
