Quality Systems Consultancy Ltd have once again assisted Kal Tire in successfully retaining their ISO 9001:2015 & 14001:2015 accreditations and successful transfer from OHSAS 18001:2007 to ISO 45001:2018.

KAL TIRE who inspect, repair and re-mould earth moving tyres have now proudly held the ISO 9001 Quality, ISO 14001 Environmental & OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety Standards for 7 years and to have been recommended for certification to the prestigious ISO 45001:2018 Standard, and it is a credit to them in driving the systems and to the workforce in adapting changes and improvements to the safety system within the business.

Quality Systems Consultancy Limited are proud to be associated with Kal Tire and the team in Derbyshire and associated depots, who have worked hard to implement changes and updates to ensure compliance to the standards.

ISO 45001:2018 helps businesses like Kal Tire manage their Health & Safety risks and improve their performance by developing and implementing effective policies and objectives. Key potential benefits from use of the standard include

• Reduction of workplace incidents
• Reduced absenteeism and staff turnover, leading to increased productivity
• Reduced cost of insurance premiums
• Creation of a health and safety culture, whereby employees are encouraged to take an active role in their own OH&S
• Reinforced leadership commitment to proactively improve Health & Safety performance
• Ability to meet legal and regulatory requirements
• Enhanced reputation
• Improved staff moral

Health and safety in the workplace is the number one concern of most businesses, yet still deaths and injuries occur. ISO 45001 sets the minimum standard of practice to protect employees worldwide and shares a high-level structure, identical core text and terms and definitions with other recently revised ISO management system standards such as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.

This framework is designed to facilitate the integration of new management topics into an organisation’s established management systems. In addition, ISO 45001 was designed to follow ISO 14001 fairly closely, as it is recognised that many organisations like Kal Tire combine their Health & Safety and Environmental management functions internally.

Congratulations to all the team at Kal Tire. We look forward to continuing to work with them in the future to drive safety, quality and environmental improvements throughout the business in the future.
