Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety Seals of Approval

Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety Seals of Approval

Following a thorough audit in December, Prior Power Solutions has received ISO 45001 and ISO 14001 certification.

Already certified to ISO 9001 for Quality Management, the company has solidified its commitment to providing both a safe working environment for its employees and visitors, and to reducing its environmental impact.

The ISO 45001 certification for Occupational Health & Safety reinforces existing proactive leadership practices to improve health and safety for everyone, including through the Coronavirus pandemic.

Having undergone a name change and total rebrand in 2020 to reflect the company’s vision of being a leading global player in the field of sustainable power solutions, Prior Power Solutions is supporting its global customers transition to more sustainable and cleaner emission powered products.

“ISO 14001 certification for Environmental Management is therefore central for Prior Power Solutions” says Daniel Dyball, Quality, Health, Safety and Environment Officer.

Reducing the environmental impact of day-to-day activities is of paramount importance to us.

“Through our energy provider, our site in Great Yarmouth is already powered 100% by clean energy.

“And since simply reviewing our waste management system a few months ago, we have already diverted 6.5 tonnes of waste from landfill.

The company is looking at new ways of identifying waste that could be recycled instead of going to landfill.

“One of the new environmental initiatives we are implementing is recycling facilities on site for Covid-19 lateral flow tests and face masks.

“At the end of the day, it’s not just about the certificate to display in reception, but an ethos to live and work by every day,” concludes Daniel.

James Rix, Managing Director says, “As part of the Moreld group of companies, sustainability is at the core to everything we do.

“Whilst we are developing electric-driven equipment and hydrogen introduction systems for diesel engines for our customers to lower their carbon footprint, we are dedicated to adopting sustainable practices in our daily operations.”
