SPAIN (News release) -- Lecta has successfully completed the adaptation process of OHSAS 18001 certification to the new ISO 45001 standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems in all its manufacturing sites as planned.
The new international certification will replace OHSAS 18001 starting in March 2021. Lecta has completed its transition smoothly and with ample time for transition.
The ISO 45001 certificate represents a strict level of compliance with occupational health and safety standards, similar to ISO 9001, ISO 50001 and ISO 14001 standards for quality, the environment and energy, respectively. These are the basis of Lecta's Integrated Management System, as reflected in its LIMS (Lecta Integrated Management System) Policy.
Securing this new multisite joint certification for all its mills enables Lecta to reassert its position as a responsible company, ready to provide a rigorous, reliable response to the needs of the most demanding markets. Always within the framework of continuous improvement and in keeping with our commitment to total transparency with our customers, employees, stakeholders and society at large.
