Setting the Health & Safety Standard
05 February 2016 by Peter Chiodo
A health and safety programme in place at the Fareham headquarters of waste management company Cleansing Service Group (CSG) has been recognised with a top accreditation.
The company has been awarded Occupational Health and Safety Management 18001 (OHSAS 18001) status – the internationally-accepted benchmark certifying best practice requirements for occupational health and safety in the workplace.
The company’s detailed H & S management system is designed to protect the interests of staff, customers, the general public and the environment.
This system recognises the sometimes hazardous nature of the industry and is given a high priority by the company’s senior management which has committed all necessary resources to ensure a safe and healthy working environment at all times.
CSG is also keen to submit its procedures to the discipline of external examination leading to formal assessments such as OHSAS 18001 which commits the company to continuous improvements to its H & S programme.
The company now plans to extend the accreditation across all of its UK estate of 26 sites and is expanding its team of Compliance Managers to ensure that the protection of health, and maintenance of safety, will be paramount wherever CSG is at work.
