Premier Marinas was awarded ISO 45001:2018 certification; an international standard for running effective occupational health and safety management systems. This award follows Premier’s ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Certification in 2018 and together they affirm the group’s dedication to improving its environmental performance whilst managing its health and safety responsibilities.
To gain ISO 45001 2018 certification a comprehensive 12 month review of Premier’s health and safety management system was conducted; this involved audits at Premier’s Head Office and at all nine of Premier’s marinas to ensure uniformity of working practices.
Alongside its ISO certifications, Premier also holds the Gold standard Investors in People accreditation for staff training and development. Premier Marinas sees the Investors in People Award as central to delivering the company’s growth and the success of staff members.
Pete Bradshaw, CEO commented: “We are proud that Premier Marinas has obtained this certification. Whilst ISO 45001 and ISO 14001 are fairly common accreditations in construction and in other industries, we are the first marina group to obtain these quality standards.
The importance of “how things are done” has been central to Premier’s culture from the very beginning, and this is demonstrated in its approach to its people, health, safety and environmental management. Taking care of the environment, keeping staff and customers safe from injury and creating a great place for people to work is a big part of what makes Premier such a fantastic company.”
