Following a recent series of audits on our integrated management system by URS, Southbay have successfully retained our ISO9001:2015 (Quality) and ISO 14001:2015 (Environment) certification and have also been awarded ISO45001:2018, (Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) management system).
ISo45001:2018 is a new international standard which will supersede BS OHSAS 18001:2007 during the next 3 years and will become the next global highlight, following ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Acquiring the certification will be a prerequisite for any companies who compete in both national and international markets.
ISO 45001 promotes a safe and healthy working environment to reduce occupational health and safety risks, prevent work-related incidents and improve legislative compliance. An OHSMS is a fundamental part of an organisation’s risk management strategy.
