The UK testing and inspection company Intertek has achieved environmental management and occupational health and safety accreditation for all its cargo and analytical assessment (AA) sites in the UK.

The achievement of joint ISO 140001 and OHSAS 18001 accreditation for these laboratories brings all Intertek UK cargo and AA sites under the scope of the certificate, accrediting the whole Intertek UK cargo and AA business. The accreditation provides Intertek UK’s cargo and AA customers with assurance of continuing high standards and legal compliance, and confirms that processes are in place to ensure continuous improvement at all the company’s sites.

‘While we believe we continue to maintain high standards across all our cargo and AA sites, it is gratifying to receive third party confirmation that we are meeting and exceeding our internal objectives,’ said Derek Snowden, head of health, safety and environment, cargo & AA, at Intertek UK. ‘The accreditation provides us and our customers with assurance that we are managing HSE to a standard commensurate with Intertek’s aspirations and it encourages us to continuously review our performance.’

‘We are delighted to offer our customers this health and safety accreditation across the entire Intertek UK Cargo & AA service,’ said Rob van Dorp, Intertek chief executive UK & Eire. ‘The safety of Intertek’s staff is paramount and this underlines our commitment to a safe working environment as well as operational delivery excellence.’
