LR has become one of the first wave of certification bodies to be awarded global accreditation by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) for the international occupational health and safety management system standard, ISO 45001:2018.
Third-party management systems certification shows compliance to a standard or regulatory requirements and can drive continual improvement. Accredited certification gives an additional level of confidence and trust as it shows that your certification body works to internationally recognised standards to deliver a consistent and impartial assessment.

It recognises the competence and sector-specific expertise of our assessors and gives our clients confidence that their OH&S management system will reduce risks and improve the safety and health of their workforce.”
