Award-winning commercial heating and ventilation specialist Lord Combustion Services has proved its credentials for health and safety by achieving an internationally recognised accreditation.

Lord Combustion Services, which has its HQ in Oldbury, has secured ISO 45001, the International Organization for Standardization’s international standard for occupational health and safety, completing a “hat trick” of certificates.

Lord Combustion Services already held quality management system standard ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, the accreditation for environmental management systems.

Working with 1000 clients across the West Midlands including NHS and education sites, Lord Combustion Services will now be able to use their ISO 45001 accreditation to show the company meets the ISO’s standard for being “serious about improving employee safety, reducing workplace risks and creating better, safer working conditions”.

Established to accredit safe and healthy workplaces which have processes in place preventing work-related injury and ill health, ISO 45001 is a standard developed by national and international standards committees independent of government.

Awards triple

Managing Director Stuart Smith said the Lord team was delighted to have achieved ISO 45001.

Stuart said: “Completing the hat-trick of certificates demonstrates the high standards met by our staff as well as our commitment to health and safety, quality and the environment.

“The latest accreditation came after Lord was subjected to a rigorous and intensive audit by an accredited body, as a result of which we were recommended for certification.

“We are pleased to gain this recognition as we look forward to continuing to deliver high standards of commercial heating and ventilation services throughout 2023.”

Having opened for business in 1982, Lord now has a team of 45 engineers and support staff, delivering services for more than 1000 sites across the Midlands, including 300 schools and hundreds of health sites.

Lord has been recognised for its work on sustainability and environmental impact having successful delivered significant retrofitting heating and hot water projects for the likes of the landmark Edgbaston cricket stadium in Birmingham.

Last year Lord was recognised for its achievements in reducing clients’ environmental impact by winning the sustainability trophy at the West Midlands Business Masters Awards.

In April, the company made the Net Zero Business Pledge to reduce their environmental impact during a visit by West Midlands Mayor Andy Street to mark their 40th year in business.
