ATG Access

ATG Access has achieved the international ISO 45001 standard, having demonstrated an commitment to occupational health and safety (OH&S) as part of its ongoing ambition to enhance trust and professionalism across the security sector.

ISO 45001 is a worldwide standard for health and safety at work, developed by national and international standards committees independent of government, and is applicable to all organisations, regardless of size or industry.

The standard required businesses to have an OH&S management system in place, which helps them manage their OH&S risks and improve their OH&S performance by developing and implementing effective policies and objectives.

As a result, key benefits from use of the standard include reduction of workplace incidents, reduced absenteeism and staff turnover, increased productivity, reduced insurance premiums, the creation of a proactive health and safety culture, enhanced reputation, and improved staff morale.

The accreditation process required a coordinated effort across all departments of the business, with everywhere from the workshop to a live construction site audited.

The BSI auditor commented, “The level of compliance of the management system was excellent for a company so early in the registration journey, and the knowledge, awareness, attitudes and behaviour of staff displayed during interviews was excellent”

Neil Ashurst, HSEQ Manager at ATG Access, said “We are incredibly proud of our team, as it wouldn’t have been possible to achieve this accreditation without everyone in the business fully embracing a positive OH&S culture.

“We’ve experienced some tangible benefits from the new OH&S management system, including improvements in production traceability and the reporting of production and engineering issues, and our customers can now feel even more confident that they are contracting an elite company with a world leading approach to OH&S that really sets us apart from many of our competitors.”
