CGL’s management systems for occupational health and safety have now been assessed and registered as conforming to the OHSAS 18001 standard.

This completes the trio of accreditations for CGL’s management systems, which are already registered to ISO 9001 for quality (since 2001) and ISO 14001 for environmental management (since 2003).

The next aim for CGL is to achieve compliance with the new ISO 45001 international standard for occupational health and safety management systems, which was published last month.

Clear communication with all staff on health and safety issues is part of the CGL culture. As part of this we have mechanisms in place that allow us to learn and act on feedback from people throughout the company on health and safety issues including near misses, hazard spots and incidents. The award of OHSAS 18001 is the formal recognition of this approach by CGL

As a further demonstration of capability, CGL is accredited to the Safety Schemes in Procurement system (SSIP) by SAFEcontractor and CQMS.
