Kloeckner Metals UK becomes the first UK stockholder and distributor to obtain ISO 45001:2018

Health and safety is paramount to Kloeckner Metals UK so we are very proud to be the first stockholder and distributor to obtain ISO 45001, the new standard with Steel Construction Certification Scheme (SCCS).

ISO 45001:2018 is the latest international standard for Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems which this year replaced OHSAS 18001. The new standard sets out requirements for all companies which wish to create and maintain a safe and healthy environment for all.

Conforming to ISO 45001:2018 reflects our commitment to providing a safe and healthy environment across the business. It’s a testament to our team who continuously work hard to improve health and safety practices and well-being across our sites, improving overall business performance.

Kloeckner Metals UK has been preparing for this transition since first becoming aware of the new standard. Placing greater emphasis on top management leadership and better understanding of risks and company stakeholders while enhancing health & safety management systems will allow us to continue delivering our quality products and services in a safe and sustainable manner.
