As one of Australia’s leading companies in electro-technology, Protech PAS understands the value of maintaining the highest standard of workplace health and safety (WH&S) and has achieved ISO 45001 Certification.
ISO 45001 was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts to help organizations such as ours improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, all over the world.
Protech PAS began the process of transitioning from an uncertified workplace health and safety system based on AS/NZS 4801 to a certified ISO 45001:2018 Workplace Health and Safety Management System.
This was done over the last six months with the full support and involvement of the entire Protech PAS team from our Directors, to our senior management team, and employees.
ISO 45001:2018 sets the framework for establishing, implementing, and maintaining our WH&S management system as well as managing WH&S risks and opportunities.
Protech PAS chose to undertake the journey towards ISO 45001 certification to better protect our employees from the risk of injury or illnesses while at work.
One of the major benefits of being ISO 45001 certified is that our customers can be confident our company has a WH&S management system in place that is effective in protecting and improving the health and safety of our employees and meets or exceeds our customers WH&S expectations.
Customers understand the advantages of working with companies that possess the internationally recognised ISO 45001 certification with some customers only willing to do business with certified companies because it gives them assurance that their management systems are regularly assessed and approved.
Protech PAS is responsible for ensuring we eliminate or minimise the risk of injury or illness to the people that may be affected by its activities i.e. employees, contractors, other company’s employees or the public.
The safety of all our stakeholders is important to us and a responsibility we do not take lightly.
Our ISO 45001 workplace health and safety system will assist in providing clear communication, effective processes for identifying risks and hazards, and the means for continual improvement which will encourage and ensure our employees can take an active role.
The advantages of the certification for our employees are clear – improved workplace conditions, less risk for injury and illness, and a clear understanding of the expectations of their workplace health and safety system.
Customers know from experience that working with ISO 45001 certified companies delivers many benefits such as:
- A strong commitment to provide a safe work environment for not only staff but all related business stakeholders
- Minimising risks of downtime through accidents
- Demonstrating a commitment to meet legal obligations and complying with any legal requirements
- Demonstrating Protech PAS’s commitment to workplace health and safety
- Improved reporting and communications
- Ensuring occupational health and safety standards are maintained through annual assessments
We look forward to continuing our high standard of performance with the ISO 45001 certification backing our occupational health and safety measures.
