Today (Thursday 28 April) marks the UN’s official World Day for Health and Safety at Work. This year’s theme is focused on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has caused a shift in working arrangements, for instance, our dependency on meeting online. Attention has also been given to the benefits of occupational health and safety systems. At SLPE, are proud to have recently achieved our certification for ISO 45001:2018 (Health & Safety Management System), which reflects our health and safety-driven attitude.
It has now been a whole year since we moved to our new Central London office. How time flies!
