KSA in Dammam and Jubail has achieved the internationally-recognised OHSAS 18001 (for health and safety management) and ISO 9001 (for quality management) certifications.
The first of the global joint integrity specialist’s Middle East facilities to achieve this milestone, the certification comes after a rigorous independent audit covering all aspects of the company’s procedures, including safety organisation, management control, measurement procedures and workplace implementation.
Hydratight operates ultra-stringent safety policies both for office and field workers with daily safety briefings at all 30 locations across the world including Perth and Singapore. A senior management committee investigates every incident, large or small.
The certification report commends the ‘commitment and enthusiasm of the local team’ and ‘strong corporate support’ as being key elements in achieving the award.
According to Hydratight Middle East’s managing director PCA Mohan, the certification will consolidate their already leading position in the region.
