Triton Showers has been awarded ISO 45001 status by the British Standards Institution (BSI) for maintaining safe working conditions.
The ISO 45001 certification is an international standard given to organisations which have adopted an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system. It focuses on risk prevention, innovation and continual improvement, and ensures companies put their people first to truly recognise the value created by an empowered workforce.
Triton’s achievement reflects its dedication to adhere to best practice when it comes to protecting staff welfare. All team members are encouraged to engage in this, and take on the responsibility of competently carrying out assigned tasks in a careful manner, demonstrating strong levels of communication and collaboration skills.
As part of the certification, thorough risk assessments are carried out by trained personnel prior to bringing equipment onto site, in order to spot potential safety hazards. Guidelines are then used to ensure employees have studied the appropriate works procedure ahead of time, and have an awareness of any PPE which may be required.
Observation cards and audits are also completed to highlight any concerns, which are addressed within a set time frame. Furthermore, a dedicated health and safety committee trained in all areas of the business, uses in-depth knowledge to support teams in maintaining a safe working environment. This includes holding regular meetings to explore feedback on site operating procedures.
David Tutton, Managing Director at Triton Showers, said: “At Triton the safety and wellbeing of our team is our number one priority, which is why our operations are carried out according to strict rules and everyone is committed to working together and looking after one another.
“To ensure continuous improvement as a business, we are always investing in new ways to adapt our activities and develop the systems we use. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, being awarded ISO 45001 standing was a fantastic way to end 2020, and will undoubtedly help contribute towards future successes in 2021.”
