Qatargas receives ISO 45001 standard certification
20 December 2019
Qatargas Operating Company Limited (Qatargas) has been certified to ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety) standard. This is a landmark achievement as Qatargas is one of a very few oil and gas companies in the region to achieve certification to this standard.
In addition, Qatargas also been successfully recertified in compliance with ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment) and ISO 28000 (Security) standards.
The process of recertification involved a thorough assessment of the Company's management systems and compliance with the requirements of the ISO standards. The audits explored the implementation of QGMS, taking a holistic view from leadership, monitoring, measurement, as well as evidence of successful implementation of continual improvement processes.
The audits, performed by certification bodies Intertek and Lloyds Register in mid-September 2019, demonstrated that the QGMS is effective and the processes are delivering.
This positive evaluation explicitly emphasized the high degree of commitment demonstrated by all concerned parties, the straightforward and clear formulation of all relevant documentation, and the very close correlation between the described processes and practical implementation.
