First-class accreditation for FirstClass

FirstClass Safety & Control, a company which specialises in protection and control systems for railway depots, has had a double accreditation success for its own internal systems. The company has just been accredited to the latest ISO 45001 standard for health and safety management and ISO 9001 for quality management.

The company received accreditation to ISO 45001 in recognition of its commitment to workplace health and safety and the company’s efforts to introduce and promote an active health and safety culture amongst its employees and leadership team. The additional award of ISO9001 demonstrates FirstClass’s commitment to customer service and quality in delivery.

FCSC director Mark Meyrick explained: “FirstClass Safety & Control is a leading supplier of control and safety systems.  We work in the rail sector, installing depot protection and control systems, as well as in other critical industries such as petrochemical, marine, high-tech manufacturing sites and automotive plants where employee safety and equipment protection are vital.

“Health and safety are absolute priorities for the customers – prime contractors and operating companies – that we deal with daily. We must therefore ensure our compliance, training and knowledge are maintained to the highest standards to meet and, where possible, exceed our customers’ expectations.”

Mark added: “Accreditation to ISO45001 and ISO9001 was a specific objective for 2020 and I am delighted that we achieved this. Health, Safety and Quality is of paramount importance to FirstClass Safety & Control and is firmly imbedded into our culture and integrated management system.”
