Recipharm achieves new ISO 45001 certification to support sustainability efforts

28 Feb 2019

ISO 45001 developed to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risk and create better working conditions globally.

Recipharm has achieved the new ISO 45001 certification at its Wasserburg facility in Germany. The certification is developed from an earlier certification according to OSHAS 18001 and a result of the Wasserburg facility’s programme to enhance its sustainability and safety efforts.

Following an audit in January 2019, the facility, which is one of Recipharm’s sterile manufacturing operations, was recognised for its high calibre occupational health and safety management systems.

ISO 45001 is the new working protection standard from the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), developed to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risk and create better working conditions globally.

Erik Haeffler, VP of Manufacturing Services and Head of sustainability said: “Recipharm is committed to the ongoing development of its sustainability standards. Achieving ISO 45001 at our first site demonstrates that we can perform to the highest standards when it comes to occupational health and safety.”

“We now start the roll-out across our other facilities as we work towards ensuring we have state-of-the-art management systems in place to manage not only occupational health and safety, but also other areas such as the environmental impact.”

Recipharm has more projects planned throughout 2019 focusing on employee health and safety, environmental protection and improving energy efficiency to ensure continuous improvement and compliance.

Recipharm’s facility in Wasserburg is part of the company’s centre of excellence for lyophilisation in vials using highly automated state-of-the-art equipment. The site’s large-scale freeze-drying capabilities were also extended last year following a EUR 32 million investment.
