Chubb Systems Achieves New International Health & Safety Standard

Chubb Systems

Chubb Systems has achieved the ISO 45001, a new global standard for occupational health and safety 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.

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.

Nichola Maher, EH&S manager, Chubb Systems, said implementing ISO 45001has been challenging, yet extremely worthwhile: “We must never become complacent about safety and the environment or lose sight of ensuring our customers safety.”

 

Continual improvement

Graeme Heanan MD 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.”

This accreditation further recognises Chubb Systems’ ability, as a leading security systems integrator in critical national infrastructure sectors, to safely deliver leading-edge technology solutions in high-risk environments.

Picture: Chubb Systems, a leading provider of security and fire-safety solutions, is one of first companies to qualify for the ISO 45001, a new global standard for occupational health and safety.
