The internationally recognized certification, OHSAS 18001, covers all three of our UK sites (London, Uffington and Dean Hill). Measured over the course of many months, the certificate demonstrates that we have implemented the correct risk management assessments, policies and procedures necessary to achieve the best possible working conditions.

David Preston, Crown Fine Art General Manager, said: “We’re over the moon to have achieved this international quality badge; it’s all part of our ongoing commitment to delivering best-in-class service. Our clients can be more confident than ever that we operate to the highest standard with safe systems of work in place and highly trained staff to move and conserve the precious art works they entrust to our care.”

All employees at Crown Fine Art, who often move works of art which are exceptionally heavy, large, fragile or difficult to move, will be trained to this quality standard.

David added: “Our team is highly skilled and accustomed to operating in challenging situations. However, this certificate means they can feel reassured that they are trained to the highest level and we have the correct policies and processes in place to protect them.”
