Star International has been awarded ISO 45001 certification for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S), following a rigorous, independent audit of the business’s health, safety and quality management processes.
ISO 45001 is the new international standard for OH&S and has been designed to support businesses that want to minimise workplace risks and create safer conditions in all operational environments.
Jeff Antley, Managing Director at Star International said:
“The ISO 45001 accreditation is a very important milestone for Star International. We offer a highly diverse range of products and services to our customers, many of whom operate in high integrity sectors where quality of service and safety are paramount.
“Our 45001 status provides customers and suppliers with assurances that we operate to recognised international standards and that these are consistently applied in the workplace, both on our own property and on the sites of clients.”
ISO 45001 was introduced in 2018 and is set to replace the pre-existing OHSAS 18001 standard for OH&S in 2021, giving businesses a three-year transition period to prepare for and meet the new requirements.
“Star was previously accredited to the OHSAS 18001 standard but when the new accreditation was introduced, we decided that we wanted to immediately pursue 45001 in order to give our customers the upmost confidence in the quality of our service delivery. I’m pleased to confirm that we achieved this, over a year before the transition deadline.”
