WCL Quarries, the largest independent quarrying, recycling and waste management operator in the Midlands has achieved OHSAS 18001 registration from The British Assessment Bureau, this is the businesses third such certification, having achieved ISO 9001 and ISO14001 in the last 4 years.

Achieving the OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety management system standard required WCL Quarries to assess the risk and implement an effective occupational health and safety management system across its three Midlands based quarrying, waste and recycling sites, promoting a safe and healthy working environment.

Simon Winner, WCL Quarries’ Managing Director commented; “At WCL Quarries the health and safety of our team is of paramount importance to us, a well run, successful site is a safe site and we’ve worked extremely hard to achieve not only the OHSAS 18001, but also the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. However, just because we’ve achieved these certifications it doesn’t mean the hard work ends. To continue to be a responsible business we need to commit to continuous improvement and continue to earn the certification year on year.”

The achievement of gaining OHSAS 18001 registration compliments WCL Quarries’ current ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications, meaning the company has robust and fully British Assessment Bureau monitored and assessed solutions in place for the following:

Quality Management (ISO 9001)
Environmental Policy (ISO 14001)
Occupational Health & Safety (OHSAS 18001)

Simon Winner continues, “I am extremely proud of the team for achieving three, very hard to achieve and even harder to keep British Assessment Bureau certifications. I think it creates a positive statement about our business and its people.”
