Vissim is now certified to OHSAS 18001:2007
Following a culture for safeguarding our personnel’s security, safety and working conditions and a qualification process, Vissim is pleased to announce that the company now is certified to the OHSAS 18001:2007 standard.
Accredited auditor Intertek Certification AS (MSYS006) audited the management system in July and Vissim’s practices in October recently, and granted the Certificate. Pending annual external audit, the certificate is valid until November 2016.
The OHSAS standard is about “Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems” and verifies leadership commitment and a systematic approach to continuous improvement. The scope is high-level and abridged. It encompasses both Development, Production, Installation and Maintenance of our projects and products.
Vissim already practices the NORSOKs006 standard (suppliers’ qualifications for North Sea Offshore), HSG65 (Health and Safety Guidelines British Sector). Vissim also extends its compliance to the Norwegian Working Environment Act (“Arbeidsmiljøloven”) and the Internal Control Act (“Forskrift om systematisk helse-, miljø- og sikkerhetsarbeid i virksomheter») to our international business projects.
