Today, many companies have an occupational health and safety management system in place, and customers often require vendors to hold an occupational health and safety certification.

FORCE Certification A/S offers occupational health and safety management system certification in accordance with ISO 45001. Certification enables your company to document the measures you take to create safe, healthful workspaces that prevent work-related injuries and illnesses among employees, and that your company complies with occupational health and safety laws.

Occupational health and safety certification under ISO 45001 also affords your company the opportunity to receive the crowned green smiley mark from the Danish Working Environment Authority.
See Executive Order 1409:2020 on the recognition of working environment certifications achieved through DS/ISO 45001, etc. here.

FORCE Certification A/S is accredited by DANAK (SYSTEM reg. no. 6504) to certify occupational health and safety management systems in accordance with ISO 45001 and the “crowned smiley” executive order, 1409:2020.

What does the certification process look like?

The start of a typical certification process is an initial meeting at the company. During this meeting, the certification process is planned.

A typical sequence looks like this:

  1. Phase 1: Auditors from FORCE Certification A/S evaluate if the company’s occupational health and safety management system meets the ISO45001 standard. Any deficiencies or problem areas identified must be addressed before certification can proceed.
  2. Phase 2: Auditors from FORCE Certification A/S conduct interviews and observe key areas of the company to determine whether the occupational health and safety management system has been properly implemented and is followed during everyday operations. Any deviations identified must be addressed before certification can continue.
  3. The final step is a concluding meeting with the company’s management, as well as one or more employee representatives.

FORCE Certification A/S’s auditors endeavour to provide value to companies through the certification process, highlighting areas for improvement and critical areas where the company can take action.
