We can help your business achieve ISO 45001 certification

ISO 45001 is an international standard for health and safety at work, introduced in March 2018 to replace OHSAS 18001.

Article summary: Health and Safety standards can help provide a structured framework for ensuring a safe and healthy workplace. Achieving ISO certification is a significant undertaking but rest assured, we can help.

At PETA, we have extensive experience of working with customers to demonstrate effective risk management, in order to comply with ISO 45001 requirements. We can provide the support you need to get your business where it needs to be. 

Whether your organisation already has a health and safety management structure or you’re starting from scratch, we have the tools to support you in interpreting what the standard asks for and pragmatically implementing the required actions.

Our practical experience puts us in a great position to assist you with a wide range of bespoke support activities; from small tasks such as carrying out a gap-analysis, all to the way up to full implementation, depending on your organisational requirements.

Customer focus: SAACKE Combustion Services Limited

SAACKE has been involved in combustion technology in the UK for over 60 years and is now one of the world's leading companies in this field. They are a global company with the SAACKE Group having subsidiaries and partners in more than 50 countries around the world. SAACKE Group Head Office is located in Germany and the SAACKE UK Head Office is situated in Havant, Hampshire. 

PETA has been SAACKE UK’s health and safety external adviser for many years. PETA visits SAACKE’s Havant premises and their service activities on customer sites four times a year to ensure the correct measures are in place, update them on health and safety legislation and assess the operation from a health and safety perspective. When SAACKE decided to make the leap to 45001, they contacted PETA to find out what the best first steps would be.

PETA Health & Safety Trainer/Adviser Paul Brett visited SAACKE’s Havant office in February 2021 to conduct a gap analysis. The purpose of this was to confirm exactly what was currently in place and what needed to be introduced to achieve ISO 45001 certification.

Paul put his recommendations forward, outlining the work that would need to be done to achieve the goal. The gap analysis identified the areas where additional documentation and procedures needed to be introduced in order to meet the scope and objectives of ISO 45001. Paul worked on the main documents, which SAACKE then added to their working procedures. The new Safety Management Policy was introduced and PETA provided support with audits to make sure the system covered all aspects of the operation. 

Phil Kemp, SAACKE UK’s General Manager said: “Paul has been great at assisting us on this journey to ISO 45001 accreditation, and although it has taken significant work, it’s been good for us working through it. We passed the audit on the first attempt which we’re thrilled about and are currently awaiting the official accreditation. Thanks to PETA for all your help and support.”
