CP Electronics awarded international safety standard

Posted: 06-07-2016

CP Electronics is celebrating the award of a prestigious international safety standard. We believe to be the first lighting controls manufacturer in the UK to become accredited to British Standard BS OHSAS 18001-2007.

The award follows a rigorous audit process spanning 12 months and covering a variety of areas from risk assessment and legislative compliance to welfare policies and staff awareness of health & safety issues.

The accreditation means companies working with CP Electronics can be assured that it is operating to rigorous, independently verified standards in all areas of health & safety, with a safe, well-trained and competent workforce and the lowest possible risk of delays in production.

It completes the set for CP Electronics which has held the ISO 9001-2008 quality management standard since 1999 and ISO 14001-2004 environmental standard since 2009 – once again the company is believed to be the only lighting controls manufacturer in the UK to hold all three accreditations.

CP Electronics’ Quality Manager, Mo Moharananjan, explained: “Quality is a watchword at CP, as evidenced by our returns failure rate of just 0.003% and offer of a five-year warranty on the majority of products. Similarly, our commitment to the environment and sustainable practices is clearly demonstrated through our ISO14001 accreditation.

“However, we believe we have really broken the mould in the lighting controls sector with the OHSAS 18001-2007 acrreditation – this is something we believe no other lighting controls supplier has achieved and so sets us apart, guaranteeing customers and specifiers of the standards to which our 160-strong workforce operate and so providing peace of mind when selecting a supply partner.

“In a sector where some manufacturers have chosen to relocate production abroad, CP Electronics has once again proven itself as a great example of a UK company setting the standards globally in quality, innovation and service.”

CP Electronics supplies a range of innovative, energy-saving lighting control systems which are at the heart of major projects across a broad spectrum of sectors including education, housing and commercial buildings.
