Company adds occupational health & safety registration to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications
MIDLANDS-based independent quarrying, recycling and waste-management operators WCL Quarries have achieved OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety registration from The British Assessment Bureau.
OHSAS 18001 registration complements the company’s current ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications, both gained in the last four years, meaning WCL Quarries now have British Assessment Bureau monitored and assessed solutions in place for quality management, environmental policy and occupational health and safety.
Achieving the OHSAS 18001 management system standard required WCL Quarries to assess the risks and implement an effective occupational health and safety management system across their three Midlands-based quarrying, waste and recycling sites, promoting a safe and healthy working environment.
Managing director Simon Winner (pictured) commented: ‘At WCL Quarries, the health and safety of our team is of paramount importance to us. A well run, successful site is a safe site and we’ve worked extremely hard to achieve not only OHSAS 18001, but also ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
‘But just because we’ve achieved these certifications, it doesn’t mean the hard work ends. To continue to be a responsible business we need to commit to continuous improvement and continue to earn the certification year on year.
‘I am extremely proud of the team for achieving three, very hard to achieve and even harder to keep British Assessment Bureau certifications. I think it creates a positive statement about our business and its people.’
