Brewer Science Achieves ISO 45001:2018
Brewer Science, in developing and manufacturing next-generation materials and processes for the microelectronics and optoelectronics industries, is pleased to announce the achievement of ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems Certification. Brewer Science is now certified in three different ISO Standards, including ISO 9001:2015 Quality, ISO 14001:2015 Environmental and now ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety.
ISO 45001:2018 is a globally recognized occupational health and safety standard developed and published by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO). ISO developed this standard to help organizations improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create safer working conditions.
“Achieving ISO 45001:2018 certification exemplifies our commitment to our employees, community and customers, by continuously evaluating and improving our safety processes to ensure we exceed the highest standards in the world,” said Terry Brewer, CEO and Founder of Brewer Science. “Brewer Science owes this recognition to our employees. They are the ones who continue to push the company forward, with their participation, dedication and commitment. It's evident that they want to see Brewer Science not only be a world class manufacturer, but an industry role model, advocating for innovation in safety, sustainability and quality.”
Brewer Science's ISO 45001:2018 certification became effective on May 12, 2021, and was issued by Bureau Veritas Certification Holding SAS, a highly respected registrar providing certification services for Quality, Environmental and Safety Management Systems.
Brewer Science's ISO 45001:2018, ISO 9001:2015, and ISO 14001:2015 certifications require comprehensive audits by our internal teams and validation by a third-party certifying body to ensure conformance with the standard.

Programs developed within the company, such as the Green Chemistry program launched in 2019, help ensure Brewer Science exceeds our customers' expectations. The Green Chemistry program screens chemicals for potential safety and environmental risks and identifies safer and more sustainable alternatives—both a direct component of the new ISO 45001:2018, and the renewed standard Brewer Science initially achieved in 1998, ISO 14001:2015, which focuses on environmental impact.

“Brewer Science remains committed to protecting the environment, conserving resources, and providing a healthy, safe and secure workplace. Environmental responsibility is an ongoing priority at Brewer Science, as we continue to reduce our carbon footprint and partner with our customers, suppliers, employees and the community to find new ways to have a positive impact on the environment,” said Matt Beard, Director of Integrated Management Systems at Brewer Science.
The company advocates for sustainability through multiple programs in the organization, including the Zero Waste to Landfill, earning the GreenCircle Certification for six years straight. Additionally, Brewer Science recently became a Certified B Corporation, the very first company in the semiconductor industry to earn this international certification which places an importance on sustainability and inclusion.
