ISO 45001:2018 is one of the most valued and recognised ISO schemes, which helps an organisation to achieve the intended outcomes of its OH&S management system. It gives guidance to enable organisations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health, meet legal requirements, reduce liabilities, increase productivity as well as proactively improve their OH&S performance.

Once accomplished, the multi-site certification was awarded to KMBL.
