AN EAST Midlands Instrument Company has achieved an Occupational Health and Safety Advisory Services (OHSAS) 18001 accreditation for health and safety in the workplace.
The Lincolnshire-based electrical, instrumentation and control installation contractor for the power generation, power transmission, rail and industrial markets said it validates its continued commitment to high standards of health and safety practices in the workplace.
Sharron Lowrie, EMI's quality health safety and environment manager, said: "The health and safety of our customers, employees and wider stakeholders is of paramount importance to our business.
"This commitment helps to demonstrate that EMI consistently manages quality, environmental, health, safety and welfare risks through comprehensive systems in compliance with ISO 9001, 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards of excellence."
The company, which celebrated its 50th anniversary earlier this year, will now be targeting a wider range of contracts specifically requiring OHSAS 18001, which is important to EMI's growth plan for the future.
Keven Bingham, managing director, said: "Achieving this standard confirms that EMI has not only met the initial requirements, but is continuing to implement best practices and procedures to achieve service excellence for customers and employees.
"This code of conduct is embedded within every aspect of our business."
