ISO45001 – Overton takes the Health and Safety of our employees and visitors at Overton Automotive Ltd seriously. Achieving this standard through a proactive approach to hazard identification and risk assessment can only lead to their improved organisational health and safety. 

Once again, due to achieving this standard, Overton will be able to monitor and measure their H and S performance with the view to eliminating all work-related injuries and illnesses completely.

 “As part of the transformation and modernisation of Overton Automotive Ltd, we recognised that we need to strengthen our management system, we decided the best way would be for us was to achieve this by obtaining an integrated management system (IMS) inclusive of ISO9001, ISO14001 and ISO45001.
