Oil industry services company Marsol International has become the first UAE company to be awarded the ISO 45001:2018 certification by Bureau Veritas, acknowledging Marsol’s commitment to superior standards and employee safety, a press release by the company revealed.

ISO 45001:2018 was developed to replace OHSAS 18001:2007 and is intended to enable organisations to proactively improve Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) performance, the press release stated; adding that it provides a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create safer working conditions – factors of particularly consideration for the oil and gas industry.

“Marsol works to create and develop local resources and capability to facilitate efficient, superior, in-country operations. We work to the latest international standards within the oil industry and have a focus on ensuring our work is carried out to superior standards. It makes sense for our business to include the new ISO 45001:2018 standard within our operations,” Mike Young, Director at Marsol commented.

“We are passionate about the work we do and OH&S is a big part of that, which is why we have been so keen to embrace the new ISO standard. Our services concentrate on enhancing operational integrity and cost efficiency, optimizing the lifetime of an asset, maximizing availability and reducing risk,” Young concluded.

Marsol International Limited is primarily operated from Dubai and specialises in commercial and technical marine service solutions for single point mooring (SPM) and offshore terminals.

In addition to the new accreditation of ISO 45001:2018, Marsol International is accredited for ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.
