Fugro-Geoteam OHSAS 18001 Certified

Fugro-Geoteam - the First OHSAS 18001 Certified Seismic Contractor

17 Sep 2008
Oslo, Norway

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.''

OHSAS 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.

''We have all been working very hard, and I would like to thank all for the fantastic work done,'' says Sue Penty, QHSE Manager.

Mr. Bøgh presented Fugro-Geoteam with the certificate. ''You have set goals and achieved them, improved existing and established new routines. It is an important achievement,'' says Mr. Bøgh. ''DNV hopes that your company will now have a safer future.''
