Strategic Safety Systems have helped a local company gain certification to key standards.
Cheltenham-based carton manufacturer Vibixa have been awarded certification to ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems and OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety Management Systems.  The systems reflected the practices already in place at Vibixa and certification to international standards gives a formal recognition to this.  They are additional to quality and hygiene certifications already achieved by Vibixa.

Vibixa’s Managing Director, Tony Szymonik said, “We have always had a responsible approach to health, safety and environmental issues, so we were confident that we were on the right track.  We did anticipate that there might be difficulties in achieving certification, but with the help of Strategic Safety Systems, these proved quite simple to meet.  The way we have involved everybody at Vibixa in contributing to this certification has given us benefits far beyond a certificate on the wall.”

Strategic Safety Systems Director, Phil Chambers, said, “I have worked with Vibixa for many years now their whole approach to safety and environmental concerns is aimed at achieving best standards.  The Vibixa certifications are a landmark for us as they were the 40th to ISO 14001 and the 20th to OHSAS 18001 certification for which we have provided support.  Whilst we operate throughout the UK, it is particularly pleasing that these milestones were reached with a company local to us. We look forward to working with Vibixa on their next target which is FSC and PEFC Chain of Custody certification.”
