GERMANTOWN, Md.; April 21, 2022 – Amentum, a leading contractor to U.S. and allied governments, announced today it has achieved the ISO 45001:2018 standard established by the International Organization for Standardization.

“Amentum is showing yet another way that it can stand out as an industry leader by achieving the ISO 45001 certification,” Brugueras said. “This integration demonstrates our unwavering commitment to our employees and their own personal safety while simultaneously maintaining the highest quality service in the industry.”
