Gilbarco Veeder-Root achieves OHSAS 18001 certification

Basildon, 02/04/2014 – Gilbarco Veeder-Root is dedicated to implementing industry leading occupational health and safety standards.

OHSAS 18001 is an internationally recognised British Standard that sets the minimum requirements for occupational health and safety management best practice. It promotes a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework that allows organisations to consistently identify and control their health and safety risks; reduce the potential for accidents; aid legislative compliance; and improve overall performance.

Receiving certification for OHSAS 18001 from BSI, the business standards company, demonstrates Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s commitment to occupational health and safety standards.

Dave Coombe, Managing Director UK comments: “At Gilbarco Veeder-Root, we take health and safety very seriously. I am delighted that Gilbarco Veeder-Root has achieved this certification. Not only is it proof of our high legal and regulatory standards, it highlights our dedication to meeting international standards and better managing health and safety risks.”
