Health and safety is our number one priority. As a business, we do everything we can to ensure we provide a safe and secure workplace for all. That's why we're delighted to announce that we have recently been awarded the ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Standard certification.
In addition to retaining our ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications, we achieved ISO 45001 as a result of a collective endeavour to implement the safest working practices. Less than 5% of companies in the UK hold UKAS accreditation in all three standards, which highlights the significance of this achievement.
To obtain this certification our business was put under strict scrutiny by an independent auditor to analyse our processes and behaviours. The main areas of the audit focused on the following:
Robust risk assessments
Consultation and participation of all staff
Engagement of directors,
Continuous training and measures of improvement
Our journey to gain Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety certification began all the way back in 2016, and we will continue to strive for exceptional health and safety standards in the future. We intend to continually improve our business across all 3 standards, with aspirations to become Carbon Neutral in the next 3 years.
“I am delighted to announce that Cotterill Civils Group has achieved its ISO 45001 status for excellence in Health & Safety. Safety is our highest priority in everything we do. We have a continually evolving safety culture that runs throughout the business and is taken very seriously by all our teams. Our ISO 45001 Health & Safety status now compliments our existing ISO 9001 quality standard and ISO 14001 Environmental standard, making us a triple standard organisation we are extremely proud of. I would like to thank everyone in the organisation for their continual commitment to excellence.” - Andy Cotterill, Managing Director A safe working environment is an integral part of our business. It not only protects the well-being of customers and colleagues, but it also increases productivity and improves the overall business performance. When employees feel safe and secure in their workplace, they are more likely to feel motivated and engaged in their work, leading to higher levels of job satisfaction.
Ultimately, prioritising health and safety in the workplace and out on site benefits everyone involved and contributes to a positive and successful work culture, something which we strive for at Cotterills.
