Cette certification garantit à nos clients la capacité de Trescal à réaliser des prestations, notamment sur site, dans le respect des règles en matière de santé et de sécurité au travail. Elle permet aussi aux sites classés « SEVESO seuil haut » de pouvoir répondre à leurs obligations réglementaires en faisant appel à un sous-traitant qui dispose d’un système de management de la santé, sécurité au travail.

Pour Fabrice Mouchel, Chargé de missions Sécurité : « La sécurité des salariés de Trescal est une priorité de la Direction de l’entreprise qui s’est fixé comme objectif 0 accident de travail avec arrêt. Il nous est donc apparu nécessaire de déployer un modèle de management ayant pour objectif une gestion rigoureuse et efficace de la santé et de la sécurité au travail. La norme OHSAS 18001 répondait à cet objectif et nous avons donc souhaité aller jusqu’au bout de la démarche en obtenant  la  certification et  préparer également le  passage à  la  norme  ISO 45001.[ndlr : norme remplaçant l’OHSAS 18001 :2007 à partir de 2021] »
