HV Test has successfully achieved certification to the first international standard for Occupational Health and Safety ISO 45001: 2018. This certificate was granted after an intense audit by QAS International. The new ISO 45001:2018 was published in March 2018 by the International Organisation for Standardisation body (ISO). It confirms excellence and good practices in occupational health and safety management systems.

This new standard puts special emphasis on prevention systems and on the company’s global commitment for the development of a culture of prevention and continuous improvement in this field. By achieving ISO 45001, the company demonstrates its organisational resilience through proactive risk prevention, innovation and continual improvement, and guarantees that the company has a clear focus on risks and opportunities for employees’ health and safety management. The company has also demonstrated its strengthened legal and regulatory compliance while achieving the highest safety standards of services across its supporting business functions and has demonstrated active employee engagement with health and safety and leadership commitment. This achievement confirms the company’s safety culture that is embedded within business objectives and strategic aims. The whole team worked very hard and shown great commitment towards achieving this standard.
