Strata has been working with Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), a world leading provider of independent assessment services, to attain two new HSE standards which are key to its work within the nuclear sector.
BS OHSAS 18001 is an internationally-recognised standard which sets out the requirements for an organisation’s occupational health and safety management practice. Using its provisions, businesses of any size and operating in any industry can design and implement their own H&S framework with all the controls and processes coming under one overarching management system.
- Create the best possible working conditions
- Identify and manage foreseeable hazards
- Reduce workplace accidents and illness
- Engage and motivate staff
- Demonstrate compliance to key stakeholders
ISO 14001 helps businesses operate more sustainably, which in the longer term can save the organisation money, improve brand reputation, engage employees and enable a flexible business approach.
All aspects of the business are considered in relation to reducing environmental impact and improve its corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities:
- Product development
- Community involvement
In 2017, Strata successfully achieved approvals for both ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. Copies of the certificates are available to view in the Downloads section.
“Protecting the health and well-being of our staff and reducing our impact on the environment are key to our company ethos and our continuing work in the nuclear sector, so I am delighted that we have achieved these two important accreditations” commented Dr Roger Kimber, Managing Director.
“Along with our Investors in People accreditation, I believe these achievements underline our commitment to both our staff and our stakeholders” he concluded.
