Strong focus on quality, health, safety and environment


Strong focus on quality, health, safety and environment
Quality
Quality, health, safety and the environment (QHSE) are a key focus for Oceanteam. Oceanteam holds the DNV GL certificate ISO 9001:2008, demonstrating on a daily basis its ability to provide and improve services that meet customer, statutory and regulatory requirements. Our Project Management System (PMS) is used for project planning, scheduling, resource allocation and change management. It allows our employees to control costs and manage budgets, quality and documentation. Its main purpose is to facilitate the planning and tracking of project components, stakeholders and resources. The PMS challenges our employees to continuously develop high-quality solutions for our clients and remain on top of the market. The company encourages its employees to increase their knowledge continuously through training and project management courses.
 
In addition, we have our own company Code of Conduct that applies to all employees and takes precedence over all other company policies and guidelines. The Code of Conduct covers topics such as bribery and facilitation payments, conflicts of interest and fair competition, as well as gifts and hospitality, human rights, sponsorship and whistleblowing. All permanent employees and managers at Oceanteam must confirm annually that they have read the Code of Conduct and have carried out their tasks and responsibilities in accordance with the code during the previous year. We also require suppliers, subcontractors, representatives and other contracting parties to confirm their adherence to ethical standards.

Health & Safety
As an OHSAS 18001 certified company, Oceanteam has sound occupational health and safety management systems in place. This means  the company meets all regulations on issues such as the introduction of new staff (Display Screen Assessment, safety rules explained) and the provision of safety gear (overalls, hard hat, ear protection, steel toed boots, etc). Health, safety and environment inspections and audits are held on a regular basis, as well as awareness training sessions focusing on safe working practices (manual handling, risk assessment, hazardous substances awareness, etc.) In our weekly Toolbox talk meetings, we discuss the risks and risk mitigation measurements for upcoming jobs.
 
Environment
One of Oceanteam’s prime objectives is to minimise harm to the environment. The fleet consists of modern vessels and great efforts have been made to ensure that pollution is kept to a minimum.
The ISO 14001: 2004 certification ensures a systematic approach to environmental management and continuous improvement throughout the group. Oceanteam Shipping’s large vessels have DNV GL CLEAN design class notation for the lowest environmental impact. All ships have a double hull and engines comply with the latest requirements for emissions using fuel type MDF (Marine Diesel Fuel). In addition, all vessels have advanced waste and disposal treatment systems.
 
Goal of zero accidents
An important HSE goal is to achieve zero health, safety and environmental accidents. In 2014, only one minor accident was recorded in the Oceanteam group and no personal injuries were reported by any Oceanteam company. However, reported incidents and accidents are always followed up with an investigation. The results are recorded in a database which is accessible to all.
