“This is a great achievement for Shredall SDS Group. We recognise that we are amongst the first wave of companies to achieve the new standard – so very much feel like pioneers in our industry!

Working with ISO 45001 has given us a real opportunity to review the way we deliver occupational health and safety across the business, thus improving an already robust management system and engaging further with our workforce on safety thinking and best practice.”
