BIRMINGHAM, UK, Jan. 8, 2008 -- C2C, a joint company established by Severn Trent and Costain, has been successfully registered to BS OHSAS 18001:2007, the internationally recognised standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems.

To achieve registration to BS OHSAS 18001:2007, C2C had to undergo intensive investigations into both their Health and their Safety systems and processes. A team of Auditors assessed all aspects of C2C, examining their performance measurement and improvement schemes. They were required to demonstrate robust training, awareness and competence programmes, operational control and emergency response procedures.

C2C's registration to the BS OHSAS 18001:2007 standard follows the recent achievements of ISO 14001and ISO 9001 status earlier in 2007. To achieve any one of these internationally recognised standards requires incredible effort from a business, but to achieve all three in such a short space of time, demonstrates C2C's ongoing commitment to delivering the highest possible assurances to both their employees and their customers. OHSAS 18001 has been designed to be compatible with ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, enabling C2C to develop a fully integrated management system that delivers quality and reliability of service whilst minimising environmental and safety risks.

C2C Services Limited, a joint venture between Severn Trent Services and Costain, can offer expertise and experience in operational management, with extensive process knowledge, very high standards in health & safety, and a commitment to achieving the highest environmental standards.

Severn Trent Services, with global headquarters in Fort Washington, Pa., is a leading supplier of water and wastewater treatment solutions.
