We are delighted to announce that First Community has been awarded the ISO 45001 which is the International Standards Organisation award for occupational health and safety management systems.
To achieve this standard, we put the health and safety of our staff and patients as a top priority by putting a framework in place to manage risks and opportunities to help prevent work-related injury and ill health.
Adrian Baillieu, Director of Finance & Resources and Business Support Team said “ I am proud to receive the ISO 45001 accreditation for our occupational health and safety management system. Ensuring we provide a first rate working environment for our staff and patients is key to maintaining the outstanding health care services we provide across east Surrey. Well done to everyone involved especially Shiva Hart our Health & Safety Manager who led the initiative for us”.
An ISO 45001 management system offers many advantages for organisations and their employees, from better overall safety to lower costs and better service delivery.
