An audit of the occupational health and safety system was carried out at Halton Marine’s Lahti unit during November 2020, granting the management system an ISO45001 certificate. ISO45001 replaced the previous OHSAS18001 certificate.
The outcome of the audit was positive, and no deviations were reported as a result. Kiwa Inspecta, a Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) organisation, also provided good comments on the development areas that the Lahti unit is committed to addressing to further develop its operations.
Safety issues and safety culture have been actively developed at Halton Marine for years. The Lahti unit has had a certified occupational health and safety system since 2013. The system is an indication of the company’s desire to commit to safety and its continuous improvement. The aim of the system is i.a. to prevent accidents and increase wellbeing at work.
Another successful audit took place in the autumn of 2020, resulting in the re-certification of the Lahti unit’s quality (ISO9001), welding quality (ISO3834-2) and environmental systems (ISO14001).
