Irish Sea Contractors received three certificates at a special presentation ceremony at the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) offices in Dublin this week; Quality Management Systems (ISO 9001), Environmental Management Systems (ISO 14001) and Occupational Health and Safety (OHSAS 18001).
“We are obviously delighted with these awards and appreciative of all the hard work & dedication of our employees that was absolutely essential in achieving accreditation to these international standards said David Kinsella, Managing Director of Irish Sea Contractors. These Standards provide a clear indication to all our Clients on how we do business and it enables us to compete & win work globally in an ever demanding Oil, Gas and Offshore Renewables Industry”
The awards were presented by Minister for Trade & Employment,Pat Breen TD and NSAI Chief Executive Geraldine Larkin;
“Progressive Irish organisations have always embraced the applications of standards and recognise their relevance to long term economic success of their businesses. In an international trading environment, this helps to build Ireland’s global reputation and strength,” said Minister Breen.
“I want to commend each and every one of these organisations for achieving certification, which can only occur when a team of smart, competent, dedicated people work together,” he added.
“The question for Irish industry is not what you gain from standards and certification; it’s the business opportunities lost without them. Globally recognised standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001 provide you with instant credibility: they differentiate your products, services and business,” said Ms Larkin.
“Standards improve efficiency, helping you to conserve money, manpower, time, facilities, and natural resources, they improve your Health & Safety, and they help in breaking down trade barriers and open doors to new markets,” she added.
