Reds achieves ISO and OHSAS Accreditation

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved certification to three internationally recognised standards; ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.

The British Assessment Bureau, a leading independent certification body, assessed our application in a process led by our SHEQ & Projects Manager, Shane Stanley.

The ISO and OHSAS certification represents an immense undertaking from Shane, who has worked hard to produce robust and comprehensive Quality Management, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems for REDS in under twelve months, whilst continuing to deliver high-value projects for our clients.

Lloyd Burnard, REDS’ Managing Director, said,
