Bob John receiving the OHSAS 18001 certificate from Richard Sadler, CEO of Lloyd's Register
In January 2010, TWI Ltd was presented with a certificate to mark its achievement of certification to Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSAS 18001).
The certificate was presented to TWI's Chief Executive, Bob John, by Richard Sadler, CEO of Lloyd's Register Group and current President of The Welding Institute.
Richard Sadler remarked on the very positive feedback he had heard from the LRQA assessor 'The attainment of this standard shows TWI's commitment and desire to take safety to a higher level. All practical activities which reduce the risk help to take the business forward.'
This standard specifies the requirements for an occupational health and safety management system, taking into account legal requirements and information about occupational health and safety risks.
As an ISO 9001 registered organisation, TWI took the LRQA Prism approach to installing a Safety Management System (SMS). Over approximately 12 months, the TWI team carefully planned and implemented the SMS in stages. Each stage was then reviewed by the assessor over six visits. This new certificate complements TWI's existing certificated management systems for Quality (ISO 9001) and Environment (ISO 14001) to demonstrate the company's commitment to continuing improvement for customers, staff and the environment.
