GAP accredited with UK-wide recognised health and safety accreditation

GAP Hire Solutions, the UK’s leading independent complete hire solutions company, has been awarded BS OHSAS 18001 accreditation, a truly international standard which sets out the requirements for occupational health and safety management good practice.

The accreditation process confirmed that GAP’s safe systems of work, health and safety policies and related documentation were fully compliant with the stringent standards required to achieve certification. A number of depots were visited, confirming the same high standards are being reached and maintained across the country, thus ensuring our employees and customers receive the highest safety standards at all times.

Alongside existing ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations in quality and environmental management respectively, the occupational health and safety accreditation highlights GAP’s commitment to raising standards in all that we do.

Allister Maxwell, Head of S.H.E Risk and Compliance said:

GAP Hire Solutions is delighted with the news that we have been accredited with OHSAS 18001 certification. This comes after we have been awarded accreditations for both environmental and quality management that confirm our commitment to high standards in the workplace that benefit both employees and customers. I was delighted to witness the passion shown by depot staff who were wholly committed to achieving certification and our drive for continual improvement.
