Renewal of both accreditations came after a thorough, independent audit of Star International’s processes and an inspection of premises, where auditors checked to ensure that processes were in place and adhered to in the workplace.
Jeff Antley, CEO at Star International, said:
“Retention of the ISO and OHSAS standards is a testament to the team here at Star International and illustrates how the business operates to the highest possible standards in all that we do.
“As a supplier to the marine and offshore sectors, it’s very important that we can demonstrate the integrity of our quality management systems and health and safety procedures in order to provide confidence to our customers and suppliers, proving that we operate to established, international standards.
“With this in mind, the business is now also working toward the new, advanced ISO 45001: 2018 standard for operational health and safety, which we expect to achieve in the near future.”
ISO 9001: 2015 is the established standard for quality management systems and demonstrates an organisation’s ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognised standard that enables businesses to measure and demonstrate their commitment to occupational safety and health in the workplace, both on company premises and client sites.
