ALE’s position at the forefront of safety best practice in the heavylifting industry has been recognised with the achievement of a new global HSQE accreditation, ISO 45001:2018.
The certificate recognises companies that demonstrate a clear commitment to health and safety management accountability across all levels of management. It highlights businesses that have developed proactive health and safety practices for continual improvement, balancing risks and opportunities, while also maintaining employee engagement and commitment.
The new high-level occupational health and safety management framework is internationally recognised, aligning it with other global standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, which ALE is already certified in.
Gary Hewitt, Group HSQE Manager, commented, “Safety is the core of ALE’s operational activities and ISO 45001 provides a robust framework in which to measure the effectiveness of those operations. Achieving this certification is a demonstration of the proactive risk management and prevention measures in place that mitigate any potential threats to employee health, safety and wellbeing.”
“We are proud that ALE is ISO 45001 certified as this identifies the best practice present throughout all levels of the organisation, showing ALE to be at the vanguard of safety management in the heavylifting industry.”
