Samsung strives to create social value by aligning with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). It focuses on goals most relevant to its activities, including SDG 3 Good health, exploring opportunities that help to attain it. One such opportunity lay in the global occupational health and safety standard ISO 45001, and in March 2018 the company achieved BSI certification to it – migrating from its predecessor, BS OHSAS 18001.
The key benefits include a stronger health and safety culture, a more productive workforce, improved integration of management systems, enhanced brand reputation, and positive community relationships.
BSI certification to ISO 45001 is central to Samsung SDI’s core value that the health and safety of its people is paramount. It also creates trust among its stakeholders, demonstrates corporate responsibility and supports its sustainability goals.
