PAREX achieves ISO 45001 approval

Parex is one of the very first UK companies to have been externally accredited to BS ISO 45001:2018.

ISO 45001 is the brand new international Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management, which replaces OHSAS 18001:2007.

The new Standard will help organisations by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions.

The Standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts and follows other management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, approvals which Parex already holds and adheres to. All three Standards share the same structure, making it easier for them to be integrated.

Parex is one of the first organisations to be accredited for 45001, with the new Standard only being published in March of this year.

Parex sees the approval as a further endorsement of its approach not only to ensuring the quality of its systems, but also providing better and safer working environments.
