Toscotec awarded ISO 45001 occupational safety certification
Toscotec has been certified to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 45001:2018 occupational health and safety management system. The certification was issued by Certiquality, an independent third-party assurance body validated by Italy’s national accrediting agency Accredia.
Health and safety culture is considered of paramount importance at Toscotec. This new certification is part of a broader effort to prioritise safety through education, training, and awareness-raising activities at all its locations, and it confirms Toscotec’s strong focus on identifying, addressing, and reducing potential risks. The ISO 45001 certification complements the company’s long-standing ISO 14001:2015 and EMAS certifications.

The ISO 45001 keeps us on the right track to monitor, manage, and deliver continuous improvement on our Occupational Health and Safety system.
