As the business navigates its way out of the pandemic whilst continuing to support the UK’s largest food export, ensuring the safety and health of the workforce has been a critical component of business management.
ISO 45001 is the international standard for Occupational Health and Safety, designed to reduce injuries and the spread of diseases for employees in the workplace- including the promotion and protection of physical and mental health. As such, accreditation to the standard demonstrates the commitment of BioMar UK to keeping their employees, visitors and contractors safe, as well as reflecting the high standards of people management and process control already in place.
“This is a fantastic team achievement which is the result of several months of preparation and an intensive audit process. I’d like to thank colleagues in the company for recognising the importance of the process as well as for their help in demonstrating the control measures in place”, said Kevin Moran, HSE Manager.
“The global pandemic has caused and continues to cause significant challenges to our operations. This, alongside the more operational control of Health and Safety has been a key focus point as we continue to invest in our workforce, and I’m proud that the company has attained the international standard”, Susan Campbell, HR director added.
BioMar UK is part of the Danish headquartered BioMar group which is focused on providing high quality, sustainable nutrition for aquaculture industries across the world.
