Safety standard success
An external audit of occupational health and safety procedures has confirmed that the Port of London Authority (PLA) meets important international requirements.
The globally recognised International Standards Organisation (ISO) 45001 accreditation has been secured following a series of checks by Lloyds Register.
Due to the pandemic, these were conducted virtually in November and probed the processes in place across the PLA.
Stuart Pollard, PLA head of health, safety and wellbeing said: “This benchmark is a vital validation of all our efforts to put health and safety at the centre of everything we do.
“It is helping us to put into place a safe working environment for our employees, which in turn will manage risk and reduce the likelihood of workplace injuries and illnesses.”
