OHSAS 18001 Certification Update



On April 18th, 2017, Wirquin Ltd (Wirquin’s UK based operation) performed an OHSAS 18001:2007 certification audit with BSI.


A lot of work went in to ensuring that we met the criteria laid out by the OHSAS 18001:2007 International Standard. We are delighted to report that the audit outcome was a “positive recommendation for certification”.


The decision will now be reviewed by the BSI review board, and we are hopeful that we will have our OHSAS 18001 certification in-hand within the next few weeks.


It should also be noted that Wirquin’s commitment to working towards, and achieving the OHSAS 18001 certification demonstrates that we value the safety of our employees and all visitors/contractors who enter our site, and keeping all of us safe while at work is of the utmost importance to us.


I’d like to say a huge “Thank-You” to everyone who was involved in the certification efforts.


We were all involved at some level, and so this audit resultis an excellent example of how teamwork can achieve great things.


By no means should this audit result be taken lightly. The OHSAS 18001 certification is widely recognized as being a very difficult certification to achieve and maintain, and so we should all be very proud of this achievement !
