A1 Assets Awarded OHSAS 18001 and R2:2013 Certifications


LONGWOOD, Florida (January 1, 2015) – A1 Assets is proud to announce the recent accomplishment of the OHSAS 18001 certification, and additionally the achievement of the renewed R2:2013 certification. This makes A1 Assets one of an elite few companies in the state of Florida to be certified under the R2, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001 standards, a reflection of the company’s continued commitment to the development of practices for responsible recycling and occupational safety.

The OHSAS 18001:2007 certification is awarded based on the evaluation of the company’s Occupational Health and Safety Management System, designed to promote a safe and healthy working environment by controlling and minimizing the risks to employees involved with handling the hazardous materials contained in electronic devices. Additionally, the updated R2:2013 Responsible Recycling certification affirms that A1 Assets is using the most up-to-date, industry-leading, and environmentally-friendly practices for the proper recycling and refurbishment of electronics, superseding the previous R2:2008 standard. These certifications also complement our existing ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System certification.

“These new certifications are a strong recognition of our core values to eliminate electronic waste in our environment while prioritizing the well-being of our employees,” said Andrew Hoopper, President of A1 Assets, Inc. “Our compliance with these standards additionally reduces costs and improves operational efficiency, which allows us to have a greater positive community impact through the processing of more electronics and the addition of more staff.”

These certifications are approved by an independent auditor, who verifies compliance with these strict standards on an annual basis. More information is available at: a1assets.com/ecompliance.
