Advancing our rail safety with ISO 45001 accreditation

July 02, 2024

Rail Safety Week is the perfect time to reflect on the progress we've made at Aura Brand Solutions in enhancing safety standards within our rail branding projects. Over the past year, we've reached a significant milestone that underscores our commitment to safety: achieving the ISO 45001 occupational health and safety accreditation!

ISO 45001 is an international standard for occupational health and safety management systems. Its primary goal is to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses by providing a framework for managing and continuously improving safety. Achieving this accreditation means that Aura has met stringent criteria designed to ensure a safe and healthy working environment for all employees.

Why ISO 45001 Matters to Us

For Aura, earning the ISO 45001 certification is a testament to our dedication to the safety of our team and our customers. This accreditation reflects our proactive approach to identifying potential hazards, assessing risks, and implementing effective control measures on our own sites and on customer sites and depots.

In practical terms, ISO 45001 has led us to:

  1. Enhance Risk Management: By implementing robust procedures, we identify and mitigate risks before they become issues. This involves regular safety audits, risk assessments, and implementing preventive measures across all our operations.
  2. Improve Safety Culture: Safety isn't just about protocols and procedures; it's a mindset. Achieving ISO 45001 has reinforced the importance of safety in our company culture, ensuring that every team member prioritises their own and each other's safety.
  3. Boost Employee Confidence: Knowing that Aura prioritises safety helps our employees feel secure and valued. This helps to foster a more motivated and engaged workforce, which translates into better performance and higher quality outcomes for our clients.

Rail branding projects come with their unique set of challenges and risks. Working in and around railways involves strict safety protocols to protect both workers and the public. With our ISO 45001 accreditation, customers can be confident that Aura is fully equipped to handle these challenges safely and efficiently.

At Aura, safety starts long before we set foot on a site. Our comprehensive planning phase always includes thorough risk assessments, detailed safety briefings, and the development of specific safety plans tailored to each project's needs. On-site, our team adheres to strict safety protocols, wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and following all safety procedures.

For our clients, working with an ISO 45001 certified partner means peace of mind. You can trust that we prioritise safety at every stage, from initial planning to final execution. This assurance not only helps in meeting regulatory requirements but also enhances the overall quality and reliability of the projects we deliver.

As a safety-first business, our efforts don't stop with achieving ISO 45001. We are committed to continuous improvement, regularly reviewing and updating our safety practices to align with the latest standards and best practices.

Here's to another year of safety, progress, and success!
