Smith’s commitment to protecting employee health and safety is recognized
Smith, a global distributor of electronic components and semiconductors, today announces its certification to the ISO 45001 standard at its distribution centers in Hong Kong and Amsterdam. ISO 45001 is a process management system that recognizes Smith’s capability to identify, control, and decrease risks associated with occupational health and safety.
Smith’s Houston headquarters has been certified to OHSAS 18001 – the benchmark for workplace health and safety prior to the introduction of ISO 45001 – since 2015 and recently transitioned to ISO 45001 as part of the global certification process. Achieving this certification demonstrates Smith’s dedication to providing a safe work environment for both employees and visitors.
The ISO 45001 standard utilizes a plan-do-check-act model for organizations to outline action items to minimize the risk of illness or injury, and it also provides a framework for integrating health and safety initiatives into operational plans and processes.
