We Have Acquired a New ISO 45001:2018 Certificate
11. 01. 2024
Proactivity. Responsibility. Security. These three of our six values are very carefully linked with respecting quality standard requirements and related certificates. This also applies to the ISO 45001:2018 standard, for which we obtained a certificate towards the end of 2023. Acquiring this certificate also means that we now have an integrated management system according to the ISO 9001, ISO/IEC 27001, and ISO 45001 standards.
ISO 45001 is an international standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety management system. Increasing customer demands, high insurance premiums, higher requirements for loss events, and the costs of production downtime are just some of the reasons why the implementation of this standard is recommended in practice.
The field of health and safety at work is also directly related to a company’s performance and employee satisfaction. In a safe and properly equipped working environment, employees can enrich their knowledge, come up with innovative ideas, and develop the best solutions and products.
Happy Employees – Happy Customers
When our employees are satisfied, our customers are also satisfied with our work. In the second half of 2023, we therefore set ourselves a new challenge and decided to undergo a certification process according to the ISO 45001 standard. The process was successfully completed by the end of the year. By fulfilling the standard requirements and thus acquiring the certificate, we have improved our cooperation with our employees and ensured control over process hazards that pose a risk of incidents related to health and safety at work. The certificate also means that we have further strengthened the culture of continuous improvement and the commitment among our employees to constantly improve processes.
Six Reasons for Implementing an Integrated Standards Management System
We examined our business needs and goals, and identified the six most important reasons for introducing an integrated management system according to the ISO 9001, ISO/IEC 27001, and ISO 45001 standards:
- Improving efficiency and reducing costs.
Integrated management systems help optimise processes, leading to greater efficiency and cost reduction.
- Increasing customer satisfaction.
Standards such as ISO 9001 help improve the quality of products or services, which increases customer satisfaction.
- Improving security.
ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 45001 help improve information security and safety at work.
- Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.
Standards help meet legal and regulatory requirements, reducing the risk of potential violations and other negative consequences.
- Increasing competitiveness.
By meeting the requirements of these standards, the company builds its reputation and customer trust, which can lead to greater competitiveness in the market.
- Improving risk management.
Standards such as ISO 9001, ISO/IEC 27001, and ISO 45001 help manage business-related risks.
