Posted 2 August 2012 · Add Comment

International maritime design, engineering and risk management consultancy, BMT Group Ltd, has been awarded the internationally recognised standard for occupational health and safety management systems, BS OHSAS 18001 following a rigorous audit.

BMT has implemented a fully integrated management system that will allow the organisation to effectively identify, control and reduce the risks associated with health and safety in the workplace.   

Jayne Matthews, manager of operational risk at BMT Group, said: “We are committed to ensuring that we have the necessary measures in place in order to keep our most important asset – our people, safe.  This certification provides us with the confidence that we have an effective framework, giving us the stepping stone to continued improvement and awareness of health and wellbeing in the working environment.  Achieving this accreditation will also help to reinforce our commitment to health and safety with our customers who are, more and more, starting to expect organisations to have secured this standard.  

A number of subsidiaries within BMT Group have also recently achieved this accreditation including BMT Defence Services and BMT Isis.
