UKAS accredits Certification International for health and safety

Certification International, a leader in the assessment and certification of international, national and industry standards, has received accreditation from UKAS to assess companies to the latest occupational health and safety management system standard – OHSAS 18001:2007.

UKAS accredited bodies are assessed against internationally recognised standards to demonstrate their competence, impartiality and performance capability. Certification International is a global organisation which provides assessment, analysis and certification services to companies of all sizes across a wide range of standards.

OHSAS 18001:2007 is an internationally recognised standard and replaces OHSAS 18001:1999. Achieving the standard assists organisations in the management of their occupational health and safety risks and can easily be aligned with ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004.

Certification International’s managing director John Pymer says: “Receiving accreditation for the latest healthy and safety standard ensures we provide clients with a high quality service. Assessing companies to the latest standards not only benefits our clients but plays a key role in our business strategy and places Certification International at the forefront of the certification industry, not only in the UK but globally.”

“OHSAS 18001:2007 is an important standard for all companies, whatever their size or sector. It’s vital for companies to underline their responsible practices through the achievement of such a well recognised standard. Certification International’s experience means we can partner with companies looking to implement operations which allow them to integrate the latest health and safety standard into their business.”
