ISO 45001:2018 Certification
UKATA has now achieved ISO 45001:2018 certification, an international standard for health and safety at work developed by national and international standards committees independent of government.
With no minor or major non-conformities, UKATA was complimented on the robust and mature structure of the systems that have been implemented.
I am extremely proud that the whole team are behind this project, and worked collectively to support the health, safety, and wellbeing of all, as staff participation is key to this standard to proactively manage risk.
This recognition adds to our already gained ISO 9001 quality certification, providing assurance of both quality and safety in our services.
UKATA has formed an exciting new partnership with Safety, Health & Wellbeing Live, an all-new exhibition that is set to reconnect regional occupational safety and health communities throughout the UK.
With 2 events in the year, UKATA recently exhibited at Manchester Central, between 23 – 24 May and will also be exhibiting at the second event at Farnborough International, from 28 – 29 September.
Finally, UKATA are supporting a new international conference this spring, with the aim to raise standards in asbestos training and legislation across the world.
Taking place in London at the ILEC Conference Centre, 17th June 2022, ‘Asbestonomy’ aims to tackle the global issue of asbestos. It will bring together key players in the asbestos industry on an international scale.
The event will include updates on how the European Parliament works on protecting workers from asbestos, asbestos management practices, regulations around the world, and analysis of gaps between countries and opening to worldwide cohesion.
I look forward to exhibiting and meeting international associates at this inaugural event.
