International H&S standard achievement
06 December 2018
Chubb Systems has achieved the ISO 45001, a new global standard for occupational health and safety (H&S), designed to increase safety, prevent work-related injuries and improve employee health and well-being at work.
After an extensive audit conducted by Alcumus Isoquar, which is governed by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service, Chubb received official certification.
Chubb, a leading provider of security and fire-safety solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
To qualify for the standard, Chubb Systems worked extensively to improve all areas of H&S, including updating its management systems, culture and behaviours, and focusing on the physical health and well-being of its people.
Graeme Heanan, managing director at Chubb Systems, said employee and customer safety is the business’ number one priority: “We have a world-class health and safety record, and meeting the ISO 45001 demonstrates our company’s commitment to proactive risk prevention, innovation and continual improvement – enabling us to grow as a business.”
