Lerwick Port Authority is one of the first British ports to be accredited with a new standard in Occupational Health and Safety within nine months of it being introduced.

Developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation, ISO 45001:2018 is the first global health and safety management system. Anne Scorey, UK managing director at certifier British Standards Institution, said: “Lerwick Port Authority should be delighted that they have achieved this in the same year the new standard was published, which is testament to the commitment of the entire team.”

The certification puts occupational health and safety at the heart of the Authority’s business process, assisting with hazard identification and risk management, facilitates continual improvement, exposes the business to external audit and improves senior management and Board oversight.

The new standard replaces OHSAS 18001:2007.
