DWO achieves ISO 45001 certification, prioritising Occupational Health and Safety in WorldSBK

Dorna WSBK Organization (DWO), rights holder and organiser of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, proudly announces that it has obtained the prestigious ISO 45001 certification by the IMQ (Istituto Italiano del Marchio di Qualità) certification body.

ISO 45001 is an international standard that sets forth requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, providing organisations with a structured framework to manage risks and enhance OH&S performance.

This achievement emphasises DWO’s unwavering commitment to ensuring the health and safety of its workforce and paddock members during the organisation of its world-class events, which takes place in variable contexts and subject to different local regulations.

“At DWO, the safety and wellbeing of our workforce and paddock members are paramount priorities,” said Stefano Pacchioli, Chief Operating Officer of Dorna WSBK Organization. “Earning the ISO 45001 certification underscores our commitment to fostering a safe and healthy work environment throughout all facets of our event organisation, from planning and implementation to ongoing evaluation and improvement.”

Key elements of the ISO 45001 standard include leadership commitment, worker participation, hazard identification and risk assessment, legal and regulatory compliance, emergency planning, incident investigation, and continual improvement.

“The implementation of ISO 45001 helps to reduce the risks of workplace accidents and demonstrates to all stakeholders that the organisation is implementing internationally recognised best practices for health and safety at work,” commented Fulvio Giorgi, CEO of IMQ. “Dorna, by committing to obtaining a voluntary certification aimed at reducing such risks, has demonstrated an extremely high level of responsibility towards the market and all stakeholders in general”.

By adhering to these criteria, DWO aims to systematically manage health and safety risks, reduce workplace incidents, and enhance overall OH&S performance at each WorldSBK round but also at each stage of the Championship planning.

ISO 45001 certification is a significant milestone for Dorna, but it is only a starting point in its ongoing journey towards excellence in occupational safety.
