JSM gained registration to the recognised OHSAS 18001 (Health and Safety) back in 2010, this Standard is now being replaced by the newly recognised IS0 45001 Standard. All companies have up until 2021 to migrate over to the new standard. We are pleased to announce that JSM is one of a few companies within our industry that has successfully migrated over to ISO 45001 following four days of audits over December 2018 and January 2019.
The OHSAS 18001 is a standard for Occupational Health and Safety; which provides a framework to identify, control and decrease the risks associated with health and safety within the workplace.
The new standard ISO 45001 will work in conjunction with JSM’s current ISO 9001, 14001 and 27001 Standards. Additional factors the standard will look into is the consultation and participation of non-managerial workers, control of subcontractors and mental health and wellbeing.
Mick Barrett says “The rapid implementation of ISO 45001 is a testament to JSM’s commitment to Health and Safety.”
