ISO 45001 ACCREDITATION

GTH are still undergoing management systems updates in order to complete and gain further accreditation in relation to occupational H&S. The criteria are for GTH to implement the required management systems updates over a designated period of time, be assessed in and achieve compliance.  We have made significant progress in the last 18 months towards achieving ISO 45001. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, our initial target to achieve ISO45001 has been unfortunately affected and put back some months. We have been operating an integrated management system now for all 3 ISO standards (9001, 14001 and 45001) for some months. During 2021 we will be undertaking fine tuning and internal audits will be undertaken, to prepare us for the external auditor who will visit during the summer. We are already seeing benefits of operating to the standard and look forward to achieving official certification, all being well, later in the year.  Watch this space for further updates and information. ...

CORONAVIRUS (Covid 19)

As part of the businesses’ compliance role, we are continually monitoring and implementing the Governments advice as the pandemic begins to ease and the vaccination programme shows scientific success. Regular testing will obviously be a vital part of the governments roadmap to cautiously ease restrictions. GTH Construction are playing their part in this as we are enrolled into the governments COVID-19 workplace testing programme, offering 2 lateral flow tests per week to employees since May. The safety of our employees and others on our construction sites are of the utmost importance, by offering employee lateral flow tests we can minimise the risk to health whilst also minimising the risk of an outbreak which could also be a risk to business operations.  GTH Construction are also encouraging all within our supply chain to enrol into the governments workplace testing programme or take advantage of the many lateral flow testing stations which have been set up.  Further updates will be issued over the coming weeks so please keep an eye out for further communications relating to the Coronavirus and how the business is reacting. ...
