Silverlink Software, one of the leading solution providers to the NHS, has been awarded OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Certification.
Silverlink is the fourth largest PAS provider to the NHS in England and also provides its specialist pathway specific CaptureStroke and CaptureFertility solutions across the UK.
The internationally applied British standard sets out requirements of good health and safety practices within the workplace and requires organisations to identify and comply with all relevant workplace legal health and safety obligations. The Standard adds to ISO9001 and ISO27001 certifications already held.
Receiving OHSAS 18001 certification is a clear indication that Silverlink views their employee’s health and safety as a priority within their organisation. For example, Silverlink has a safety policy in place to protect employees against possible occupational risks and to reduce the likelihood of accidents in the workplace.
On the new OHSAS 18001 certification and its significance in improving their credibility among stakeholders, regulators and customers, Silverlink’s Finance and Quality Officer stated: “Our work towards successful and continued compliance to the standard demonstrates and reinforces the company’s commitment to workplace health and safety, for staff, subcontractors and customers.”
Silverlink currently employs 25 staff and has rolled out their PCS PAS solution at 13 Acute Trusts covering 45 hospitals in the UK. Silverlink also has a specialist clinical data suite of products, including the market leading CaptureStroke solution, which has helped trusts across the UK transform their stroke pathway with improved efficiency and patient outcomes, and their latest offering, CaptureFertility, to help leading Fertility Centres manage their clinics.
