Loughton Contracts receive ISO 45001 accreditation!

We are delighted to confirm that we now have joined a list of professional companies that have transitioned from ISO 18001 to ISO 45001 accreditation. This latest ISO is now recognised as an International Standard with nearly 70 countries signing up to it.

By conforming to the ISO 45001, Loughton Contract’s are now working toward improving Occupational Health and Safety risks. This new standard aims to reduce the number of work-related deaths by taking a more proactive approach to risk control.

“Over 7600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases”

Although we all have a responsibility to health and safety, the ISO 45001 focuses on senior management taking a greater ownership on this process. As a business we are concentrating our efforts to ensure that our workforce is appropriately trained and competent to carry out their working tasks. This includes everyone from management to fitters to labourers. Unlike the ISO 18001, which focused primarily on hazard control, the new ISO 45001 aims to improve the preventative measures used to reduce risk.

Remember, prevention is better than cure!!
