RPS is once again proud to confirm that we have passed our annual ISO 14001 & ISO 45001 audits with flying colours. We are pleased to have maintained our excellent health & safety and environmental management systems, especially with the transition from our old Maltby site to our new Pallet HQ at Eaglescliffe. Our ISO 14001 accreditation was first certified in August 2011 and our ISO 45001 (which was 18001 at the time) was in September 2012, making it almost 10 years since we first received our certificates.
In line with COVID-19 restrictions, the audits were performed remotely and the result confirmed that RPS passed without the need for any rectifications, ensuring we continue to operate according to the requirements of the ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 standards. As a business, this drives our commitment to reduce our impact on the environment and also ensures that all employees, contractors, visitors and the local community remain safe.
Going forward, our aim is to ensure RPS introduces some tangible objectives which relate to our new operating centre. Many of our former objectives that related to the former site at Maltby have now become obsolete. We have massively improved working conditions by building the Eaglescliffe site from the ground up, including a far superior concrete yard with no pot holes – this helps us to reduce damage to plants and machinery, such as fork lift trucks, and in turn reduces our impact on health, safety and the environment.
We look forward to continually updating and reviewing our management systems over the next few months to ensure we surpass our objectives and improve processes.
