Occupational health & safety management system

To ensure the health and safety of our employees and the safety of the public Anglian Water has implemented a company-wide occupational health and safety management system. This is externally assessed and certificated by a third party for compliance with international health and safety standard, ISO 45001:2018.

The system covers all activities undertaken by Anglian Water and demonstrates our commitment to reducing the exposure of our employees and all other parties to occupational health and safety risks associated with our activities. In addition the system provides a consistent and proven management approach to our health and safety risks, both present and future, and enables assurance of compliance with applicable health and safety legislation and regulation and of due diligence generally. The system is regularly updated to continually improve our occupational health and safety performance.


A key element of the management system is our health and safety policy which defines at the highest level Anglian Water’s commitment to occupational health and safety.


Peter Simpson, Chief Executive, Anglian Water.

Nothing that we do at Anglian Water is so important that we cannot find the time to do it safely. The health and safety of our employees and anyone who is affected by our operations is paramount.
