BNL (UK) Ltd receives BSI 45001 Health & Safety Management Certification
Health and Safety in the workplace is more important now than ever. Procedures and processes that keep us safe are essential to keeping our businesses and communities functioning.
At BNL and throughout the Synnovia Group of companies, the safety of our workforce is a constant priority. The machinery and equipment we use, and the processes for operating our production lines, are regularly reviewed to ensure safe use and that the best possible working practices are being adhered to.
BNL (UK) Limited has now received recognition of this in achieving BS ISO 45001:2018, Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems certification.
This certification shows that BNL has an established and well-maintained OH&S management system that allows us to identify and eliminate or minimise OH&S risks. Additionally, it recognises the Continuous Improvement initiatives that BNL have implemented, our efforts in keeping our staff and visitors safe on site and during their working day and demonstrates that we conform to the BSI’s high standard of OH&S performance and consistency.
“BNL have always held high standards of health and safety and we welcome the recognition of our long-term work in this area. Health and safety is everyone’s responsibility from senior management to the suppliers we have on site; it is a continual priority for us as a management team”, stated Iain O’Hare, QHSE Manager at BNL. “We regularly review and improve procedures and processes with our H&S Representatives from each area of the business, to ensure everyone has the ability to draw attention to even the smallest areas where improvements can be made.”
Globally, standards for OH&S are imperative in the push to improve working conditions and prevent work-related injury and ill-health. Responsibility to ensure the safety of workforces in our supply chain are also very important to us, and we ascribe to an Ethical Trading Policy, following a set of ethical trading criteria covering non-discriminatory practices, fair wages and working conditions.
