MAPP’s health and safety management system receives ISO 45001 certification from SGS

MAPP, the leading UK property management specialist, said today that its Health and Safety Management System has been certified to the new international standard for Occupational Health and Safety, ISO 45001:2018 by SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company.

Over 7,600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases, according to the International Labour Organisation (ILO) – that’s over 2.78 million every year. The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and the wider economy, resulting in losses from early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums. The ISO 45001 standard has been developed to help organisations improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions.

CEO Nigel Mapp commented: “Health and safety is a top priority for us and we strive for continual improvement. This certification validates our approach to the driving the highest global standards across our properties. We are committed to fostering a strong culture of health and safety for the benefit of our employees, our partners and our occupiers.”
