- Business & Finance
Sonardyne International’s UK sites in Yately, Aberdeen and Plymouth have been awarded OHSAS 18001 Safety Management System Standard accreditation after successful audits of all three sites.
The Occupation Health and Safety Assessment Specification (OHSAS) sets out the minimum requirements for occupational health and safety management for best practice in the workplace. It is internationally accepted as the recognised standard of assessing and auditing occupational health and safety management systems. Developed by leading trade and international standards bodies, OHSAS 18001 provides a framework for organisations to instigate proper and effective management of health and safety in the workplace, Sonardyne said.
Commenting on this, John Ramsden, Sonardyne’s Managing Director said: “As an international organisation that’s committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of all our employees wherever they work in the world, we are extremely pleased that Sonardyne’s entire UK operation now joins our regional centres in Rio das Ostras, Singapore and Houston in obtaining OHSAS 18001 certification. Conducting our operations in an efficient and safe environment, where the risk of incidents and accidents occurring is minimised, is our number one focus. Earning accreditation across our business proves that first and foremost, Sonardyne places the wellbeing of its staff and business partners at the heart of its operation. It also provides our clients with the complete peace of mind that they are dealing with an organisation that fulfils its contractual obligations in the most safe and secure way.”
