HITEK is focused on continuous improvements and providing our customers with the best service possible, with this in mind we took the opportunity to review our health and safety accreditation and recently went under assessment for ISO 45001:2018, we are proud to announce we have been approved by Alcumus ISOQAR and are now compliant with ISO 45001:2018.
This accreditation specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety management system; it gives guidance to enable HITEK to provide a safe and healthy workplace by preventing work-related injury and ill health. As well as encouraging continual improvements to occupational health and safety performance, eliminating hazards and minimising health and safety risks.
ISO 45001:2018 helps HITEK to achieve the intended outcomes of its occupational health and safety management system, consistent with our occupational health and safety policy. The intended outcomes of an occupational health and safety management system include:
- a) continual improvement of occupational health and safety performance;
- b) fulfilment of legal requirements and other requirements;
- c) achievement of occupational health and safety objectives.
ISO 45001:2018 enables HITEK, through its occupational health and safety management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/well being.
Achieving this standard enables HITEK to manage risk and helps to ensure compliance with legislation. It helps our staff to create and maintain a safe and healthy working environment for workers, visitors and anyone involved in our organisations activities.
