GES Secures New International ISO 45001 Accreditation for Health and Safety
11/14/2019
GES, a global, full service provider for live events, has secured the new international ISO 45001 accreditation for health and safety.

The ISO 45001 standard replaces the ISO 18001 certificate and is designed to increase employee safety and reduce accidents in the workplace.

The ISO requires all accredited companies to migrate to the new standard by March 2021. GES has achieved its award 18 months ahead of the deadline, making it one of the first in the events industry to do so. The certification covers each of GES EMEA’s key regional offices in the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

Paul Ormbsy, head of health and safety at GES said: “The event industry model often requires fast paced build with a hard deadline on open day. It is essential that we balance the need for efficiency with our very real health and safety responsibilities. ISO standards are scrupulously independent, and this accreditation gives organisers, venues and exhibitors confidence in our dedication to the highest possible standards.”

Jason Stead, managing director, GES Exhibitions adds: “We are passionate about health and safety at GES and committed to fostering a culture of safety for our teams, customers and stakeholder. I’m proud for GES to be among the first in the sector to achieve ISO 45001 and encourage the industry to get on board this game-changing initiative. “
