Monofloor UK has achieved registration to the latest occupational health & safety standard, ISO 45001:2018, following a successful audit by BSI.
Monofloor previously held OHSAS 18001:2007 accreditation for health & safety management, since January 2018. ISO 45001 standard has the same core aim of reducing unacceptable risks and ensuring the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved in an organization’s activities – however, the scope of the new standard is broader. It requires companies to also consider how suppliers and contractors manage risk, and to integrate health and safety management with their other management systems.
Monofloor UK has held ISO 9001 quality management registration for eleven years, and in 2017 updated its registration to the latest standard. At the same time, it also achieved registration to ISO 14001:2015 environmental management. Attaining ISO 45001 now positions the company as a triple-accredited organisation, operating to three highly-respected world-class management standards.
The project to achieve Monofloor’s triple registration was co-ordinated by Laurance Williams, Project Manager at RCR, Monofloor’s parent group. “ISO 45001 puts health and safety at the heart of a business’s operations,” he commented. “We have worked hard to ensure that all RCR’s operations in the UK are aligned to the latest international ISO standards. This success will help to set the highest standards of service performance, not just in the UK but also across the whole of the RCR Flooring Services division.”
