Bluefors Awarded the ISO 45001 Certification for Occupational Health and Safety Management

We are proud to announce that Bluefors has received the ISO 45001 certification. This internationally recognized standard acknowledges Bluefors’ commitment to the well-being of our employees, and to promoting health and safety culture.

ISO 45001 is a widely recognized international standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management systems, providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks, and create better, safer working conditions. Achieving this certification is a significant milestone for Bluefors, underscoring its dedication to safeguarding the well-being of its employees, partners, and customers.

“We are thrilled to have earned the ISO 45001 certification,” said Nina Holviala, Director of People Operations of Bluefors. “This achievement reflects our continuous efforts to enhance our health and safety practices. At Bluefors, the well-being of our team is paramount, and this certification validates our commitment to providing a safe and healthy working environment.”

The certification process involved a comprehensive audit of Bluefors’ health and safety policies, procedures, and practices. Conducted by an independent third-party certification body, LRQA, the audit examined how Bluefors identifies, controls, and mitigates risks across all its operations. The company demonstrated robust systems for incident reporting, risk assessment, employee training, and continuous improvement.

“We value our employees, and their safety is our top priority,” added Mia Laine, Quality Director at Bluefors. “Achieving ISO 45001 certification has been a rigorous journey, but it has strengthened our safety culture and equipped us with the tools to manage risks more effectively. I appreciate how the standard encourages open communication about safety concerns. For me, focus on safety fosters a sense of teamwork and shared responsibility.”

Bluefors is at the forefront of innovation in cryogenic measurement systems, with a focus on quality, reliability, and customer satisfaction. The ISO 45001 certification complements the company’s existing ISO 9001 quality management system certification and ISO 14001 environmental management system certification, reinforcing its holistic approach to operational excellence.
