Plant Integrity, TWI’s wholly owned subsidiary, specialises in the use of guided wave technology for inspecting pipes in inaccessible locations such as road and river crossings, power plant tubing, risers, offshore topside pipework, jetty lines and refinery pipework.
Following assessment by Lloyds Register, we are pleased to announce that Plant Integrity has been certificated to ISO 45001:2018, the international standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. The International Standards Organisation (ISO) developed the standard to help organisations to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, all over the world.
The new standard was introduced in March 2018 to replace BS OHSAS 18001 and includes additional elements such as those related to the needs and expectations of employees and interested parties as well as an increased focus on risk and opportunities and greater commitment from management and leadership.
Plant Integrity follows TWI as an early adopter of ISO 45001, which follows the structure of other ISO standards.
Nations aside from the United Kingdom that have adopted ISO 45001 as a national standard include Albania, Argentina, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and Uruguay.
