Joseph Ash Galvanizing receives OHSAS certification

Bilston plant is currently the only galvanizer in the UK to receive OHSAS 18001.

Joseph Ash Galvanizing has always been proud of its health and safety standards and certifications, and continually strives to protect all employees and visitors who enter their galvanizing plants. The Joseph Ash Bilston site has recently moved a step further than any other galvanizing plant in the UK however by being awarded the OHSAS 18001 Certification.

The Certification to OHSAS 18001 commits Joseph Ash Galvanizing to having a clearly defined management system in place to identify and control health and safety risks. It means that Joseph Ash Bilston can:

  • Create processes for continually reviewing and improving occupational health and safety
  • Minimise the risk of production delays
  • Provide a safe environment in which to do business
  • Ensure legal requirements for the industry are adhered to
  • Minimise risks of downtime through accidents.

Achieving the certification involved the redevelopment of the existing Bilston health and safety policy to articulate commitments to the continual improvement of health and safety performance. Three members of the Bilston team also completed the required OHSAS 18001 Internal Auditor Training.

Steven Hopkins, Managing Director at Joseph Ash Galvanizing said:

“The team at Joseph Ash Bilston are proud that they’re currently the only galvanizing plant in the UK to receive OHSAS 18001 certification. This is a great achievement for Joseph Ash Galvanizing. Watch this space to see the other Joseph Ash plants follow suit!”
