Chubb Systems has been accredited to ISO 45001, a new, global, occupational health and safety (OH&S) standard that specifies best practice in preventing work-related injuries and promoting employee wellbeing, following an extensive audit by Alcumus Isoquar which is governed by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service. Chubb, a leading provider of security and fire-safety solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

 

To qualify for the standard, Chubb Systems worked extensively to improve all areas of H&S, including updating its management systems, culture and behaviours, and focusing on the physical health and well-being of its people. 

 

Graeme Heanan, managing director at Chubb Systems, said employee and customer safety is the business’ number one priority: “We have a world-class health and safety record, and meeting the ISO 45001 demonstrates our company’s commitment to proactive risk prevention, innovation and continual improvement – enabling us to grow as a business.”

 

This accreditation further recognises Chubb Systems’ ability, as a leading security systems integrator in critical national infrastructure sectors, to safely deliver leading-edge technology solutions in high-risk environments.

 

Nichola Maher, EH&S manager, Chubb Systems, said implementing ISO 45001has been challenging, but extremely worthwhile: “We must never become complacent about safety and the environment or lose sight of ensuring our customers safety.”
