IOS secures health and safety certification

A leading North-east storage and inspection firm has been awarded another internationally recognised certification due its commitment to health and safety.

Independent Oilfield Services (IOS), which was launched in 2014, secured its OHSAS 18001 certification following the implementation of its health and safety policies and procedures at the firm’s tubular supply facility near Peterhead.

The OHSAS 18001 certification is designed to clarify an organisation's impact on health and safety issues, as well as help to reduce the risk of accidents and any breach in legal requirements.

Symon Wadsworth, finance director at IOS, said: “With these strict procedures now in place at the yard, we are able to achieve the best possible working conditions for our employees, making it a safer working environment for our staff to complete jobs in an efficient and safe manner.”
