Dieselec Thistle reinforces health and safety leadership

We have been recertified with the OHSAS 18001: 2007 Occupational Health and Safety Standard.

George Hobbins, HSE Manager at DTG, said: “The accreditation equips the business with a recognised and structured approach to planning, implementing and managing a health and safety management system, and highlights our commitment to maintaining the highest health and safety standards.

“Furthermore, it empowers employees and provides our customers with peace of mind that they are dealing with a company that cares, and leads in the field of health and safety standards and environmental responsibility.”

What is BS OHSAS 18001? BS OHSAS 18001 is a framework for an occupational health and safety management system. It can help put in place the policies, procedures and controls needed for an organisation to achieve the best possible working conditions, aligned to internationally-recognised best practice.

DTG has also been recently been audited by Achilles, the external body that verifies a supplier’s status as a trusted partner by assessing its supply capabilities and compliance with industry legislation. Part of this assessment involved a site survey as an addition to the management system. DTG was awarded 100% for health and safety, 98% for quality and 94% for environment.

This adds to the company’s portfolio of accreditations including ISO 9001, ISO 14001. RISQS, Safecontractor and Constructionline.
