Stonbury are immensely proud to be supporting our clients across the UK at such a crucial time and have been designated as 'key workers' by DEFRA and the UK water utility companies. Our teams are working tirelessly to help secure and maintain drinking water supplies, ensuring clean and safe drinking water is provided without interruption to critical services such as our hospitals as well as the general public. Now more than ever, the safety and wellbeing of our staff is of the utmost importance and we have adapted our safe working practices to ensure social distancing precautions are in place and that the correct hygiene practices are being followed. Making safety is our priority, and we endeavour to make sure everyone at Stonbury goes home safe to their family.
ISO 45001 is an international standard for health & safety at work, developed by national and international standards committees’ independent of government.
Introduced in March 2018, ISO 45001 is replacing the current standard BS OHSAS 18001 which will be withdrawn, allowing businesses a three-year period to fully align with the new management system.
Whilst it is not required by law to implement ISO 45001 or similar management standards, ISO 45001 provides a structured framework for ensuring a safe and healthy workplace. Looking to the future, this new Health & Safety Management System is a prerequisite for our clients affecting the success of future frameworks agreements and tenders.
