Bohler Uddeholm (Health & Safety Management System Implementation)
Bohler Uddeholm is one of the world’s largest producers of specialist steels. To remain at the top of their sector, Bohler Uddeholm is dedicated to quality throughout its businesses. The Company also recognises its responsibilities and is committed to health and safety best practices to ensure it operates a safe business.
Bohler Uddeholm was looking for support to help it understand how it could operate a health and safety management system which could be certified to OHSAS 18001. The Company required expert legal compliance advice as its own team didn’t have the necessary skills. It also required assistance in the establishment of a legal register.
Newground’s approach and solution
Newground worked closely with the Health, Safety and Environment Team to share knowledge and support them in their journey towards certification to the Health and Safety Management Standard OHSAS 18001. Newground also completed a legal compliance audit to identify whether there were any non-compliances and produced an accurate legal register which reflected the Company’s activities. Guidance on what the Company needed to do to remain compliant was also provided. In addition, Newground carried out internal audits on behalf of Bohler to meet the requirements of the management system.
How we made a difference
Through utilising the skills and knowledge provided by Consultants from Newground, Bohler Uddeholm better managed its legal compliance and successfully gained certification to the Health and Safety Management System Standard OHSAS 18001. Newground provided solutions where the Company did not have the in-house skills to meet the requirements of the Standard, which included internal auditing.
Bohler Uddeholm has now improved health and safety management and performance and can demonstrate this to its customers and stakeholders.
