Albion gains health and safety accreditation

Albion Valves, health and safety, ISO, David Keys

Albion Valves has recently gained the ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management System accreditation.

The audit process looks at the company’s commitment to the health and safety of employees, key stakeholders and other interested parties, ensuring compliance with all statutory and legal obligations and assessing the commitment to on-site risk, hazard identification and procedures to reduce these risks.

David Keys, Albion managing director (pictured), says: “Having these management systems in place and holding the relevant accreditations shows Albion’s commitment to quality, health and safety and the environment. As the management systems expect, we will continue to review our processes and implement any changes that would have a positive impact on our employees, customers or stakeholders.”

Lee Petty, Albion’s quality manager, comments: “This is a very positive step for Albion, demonstrating the importance of health and safety amongst all employees and stakeholders, but as with any Management System, it is a cycle of continuous improvement so the work doesn’t end here, we will continue to put processes in place to further reduce the number of incidents within the workplace.”

The ISO 45001 accreditation joins the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations that Albion has held for a number of years. Both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 have recently been reviewed and re-issued to the 2015 suffix, and with the addition of ISO 45001, it has enabled a seamless integration to an integrated management system.
