September 2008 Fugro-Geoteam has become the first seismic contractor
certified according to OHSAS 18001 standards. ''This is a great
achievement,'' says Mr. Hans Meyer, President of Fugro-Geoteam. ''It was
worth waiting and working for, and I am extremely proud of it.''
18001 was created by the world's leading national standards and
certification bodies, as well as specialist consultancies. The OHSAS
specification gives requirements for an occupational health and safety
(OH&S) management system, to enable an organisation to control its
OH&S risks and improve its performance.
OHSAS 18001 has been
developed to be compatible with the ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001
(Environmental) management systems standards, in order to facilitate the
integration of quality, environmental and occupational health and
safety management systems.
Fugro-Geoteam's certification was
performed by DNV, an independent certification body. ''Working with
Fugro-Geoteam has been inspiring; it was a very good process,'' says
Øivind Bøgh, DNV Lead Auditor. The main challenges were vessels and
risks offshore. We hope that this certification will help to further
promote the company on the market.''
The process of the certification started December 2007.

important achievement,'' says Mr. Bøgh. ''DNV hopes that your company
will now have a safer future.''
