One of first to qualify for the distinction
Chubb Systems Limited has achieved the ISO 45001, a new global standard for occupational health and safety (H&S), 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. Chubb, a leading provider of security and fire-safety solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
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. Graeme Heanan, managing director 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. Nichola Maher, EH&S manager, Chubb Systems, said implementing ISO 45001has been challenging, but extremely worthwhile: “We must never become complacent about safety and the environment or lose sight of ensuring our customers safety.”
