Global leader in online vehicle remarketing, Copart UK has been accredited with the ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety Management Standard, further demonstrating their commitment to quality, safety and continuous improvement.

The International Organisation for Standardisation introduced the ISO 45001 standard, which replaced OHSAS 18001 in 2019, to help organisations to consistently identify and control the management of health and safety risks; with an emphasis on leadership and objectives measurement, risk management, communication and awareness.

The assessor was particularly impressed with Copart’s Online Operations Manual, a centralised information hub which stores all the company’s operational processes and procedures in one place and is easily accessible by over 1,000 employees across Copart’s 18 UK locations. 

David Lole, Health & Safety Manager, said:

“We’ve always maintained robust health and safety procedures at Copart but it’s great to have this externally verified with a formally recognised corporate accreditation. ISO 45001 takes a proactive approach to health and safety with a focus on minimising and preventing risk, which sits perfectly alongside Copart’s well-established commitment to continuous improvement and operational excellence.”

This latest accolade for Copart follows their recent CCA Global Standard Accreditation, which is recognised as the definitive standard for customer contact operations and which Copart was the first company within the vehicle remarketing industry to receive. 

Stephanie Barnard, Head of Performance Management, Quality & Audit, said: 

“At Copart, we never stand still and are always striving to improve what we do for our customers and our employees as we continue to grow. Our ISO 45001 accreditation clearly demonstrates that we have vigorous health and safety processes in place across our business to protect both our people and our customers’ assets.” 

Copart will continue to explore further ISO standard accreditations over the next few months.
