PARIS, France (19th May 2015) – Tokheim is delighted to announce that the Dispenser Manufacturing Centre (DMC) in Dundee, UK has achieved OHSAS 18001 certification for their Health and Safety Management System. The internationally recognised accreditation to the primary manufacturing facility of Tokheim continues to demonstrate the company’s dedication to providing the highest standards of health and safety as part of their common culture.

The health and safety records have been of paramount importance to Tokheim’s culture and the certification highlights the company’s commitment to creating a safe, healthy and risk-free workplace. Continuous improvement of the company’s standards have enabled Tokheim to innovate and demonstrate a forward thinking, proactive approach, resulting in a positive impact for their employees, suppliers, partners, customers and the wider business environment they operate in.
