Tyne Pressure Testing has achieved ISO 45001 Certification, recognising its on-going commitment to managing hazards in the workplace and worker safety.
ISO 45001 Certification is an internationally recognised occupational health and safety management standard. It provides a framework to the effective management of occupational health and safety, including compliance with the legislation that applies to a company’s activities and identified hazards.
The assessment was carried out by Bureau Veritas, a global leader in testing, inspection and certification (TIC). As part of the certification process, Bureau Veritas looked at whether Tyne Pressure Testing had defined its occupational health and safety policies and objectives, had processes in place to ensure continual improvement, and if its management system was regulatory compliant. This breaks down in to a review of the following fundamental OHSMS (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) process:
• Risk management
• OHSMS policy
• OHSMS plan
• The implementation of the plan
• Integrated approach
• The monitoring of the plan and correcting actions
• The continuous review and improvement of its OHSMS
Bureau Veritas, comments: "We take a partner approach when conducting our assessments, and integrated ourselves within Tyne Pressure Testing to truly understand all aspects of its OHSMS process. Following our in-depth examination, we concluded that it met all of the requirements, as set out by the ISO 45001 framework, and issued the certification. We’d like to congratulate Tyne Pressure Testing on this achievement.”
Paul Smith, CEO at Tyne Pressure Testing, said: "Obtaining ISO 45001 has refined the way we work as well as improved the structure and effectiveness of our OHSMS systems. This standard has helped us to facilitate continuous improvement making the working environment safer through risk reduction, as well as giving our employees and customers the confidence that our OHSMS meets the requirements of a globally recognised standard”.
