Energy Assets Limited (EAL) has passed a BSI audit with outstanding results and been recommended for migration to the latest standard governing occupational health and safety management.
As a result we have become certified to ISO 45001:2018, replacing the existing OHSAS 18001:2007 standard. This success helps position EAL as industry leaders, demonstrating business excellence in this essential area of employee life at an internationally recognised level.
The new standard aligns perfectly with our Core Values, as it primarily focuses on the physical and mental well-being of employees at work, whereas its predecessor was more focused on the quality management of workplace systems and tools. We are delighted with this new accreditation and believe it will contribute positively to employee morale.
“The new accreditation allows for a more focused approach to business opportunities, by embracing a more positive mindset to organisational structures and striking an appropriate balance with risk.” Says Glen Dale, Head of Compliance.
The new standard also demonstrates that we are rooted in best practice that is mirrored consistently across business processes. This consistency paves the way to a more efficient organisation, and helps enhance trust in us by promoting continuous improvement in areas such as employee morale, safety and performance. We also aim to be transparent in our corporate social responsibility activity, which in turn has a huge impact on how the public, our future employees and prospective clients perceive our business.
Furthermore, this new ISO accreditation minimises the possibility of oversights and ensures that responsibility and ownership lies within our highly skilled and dedicated Compliance team and Board level management. This, in turn, ensures a dynamic and accountable approach to the occupational health and safety of our employees.
The new ISO 450001 accreditation covers EAL offices in England, Wales and Scotland, and applies to our our locations in Livingston, Sheffield, Darwen and Cardiff.
