Watkins Hire Ltd is proud to announce that its Occupational Health and Safety Management System is now certified to OHSAS 18001:2007 across all UK Depots. This important accreditation complements Watkins Hires existing Environmental Certification ISO 14001 and Quality Certification ISO 9001.
An efficient occupational health and safety management system promotes a safer and healthier working environment for everyone involved. OHSAS 18001 is designed to help organisations implement a framework that identities and controls health and safety risks, reduce potential accidents, aids legislative compliance and improves overall performance. It lays out all the elements that can be integrated with other management systems to boost a company's occupational health and safety performance. The standard also demonstrates how to develop and implement a policy with the right objectives for the organisation, covering diverse geographical, cultural and social conditions.
As well as being fully compliant with the ever changing legislation and best practice codes of working, Watkins Hire Ltd is constantly developing and improving the way it operates to meet the ever changing needs and demands of its client base.
OHSAS 18001:2007 highlights Watkins Hires professional service provided to their client base and the accreditation represents the process of continual improvement for their hire business. Simply offering all our customers local, regional or national, the best product and service, provided against a full set of agreed proven processes and procedures that are constantly measured and challenged. This all results in improved customer satisfaction.
"Maintaining high quality occupational health and safety management systems is a priority for everyone at Watkins Hire Ltd, as it allows customers to be confident that we are responsible with our health and safety and environmental matters and we adhere to all legislation and other requirements. Earning the certification is an important recognition of our employee's commitment and hard work in this area" Watkins Hire HSQE Manager.
