Safety, quality and the environment in focus: Hycom achieves new certification

- Wow, it has been a hectic, but very rewarding year for us here at Hycom, says Birthe Østerbø, quality manager at HyCom

In December 2022, we were recertified according to ISO 9001 Quality and ISO 14001 External Environment, and we also achieved certification for the first time according to ISO 45001:2018 Working environment. We are so proud and humbled to show off our certificate!

ISO certifications are important for HyCom’s security and sustainability

We have chosen to invest in ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 in order to work in a safe and sustainable way. ISO 9001 is a good tool for ensuring quality at all stages, while ISO 14001 helps us minimize our impact on the environment and increase our environmental awareness. We see ISO 45001 as an important tool for creating a safe and secure workplace for our employees. With these certifications behind us, we have a solid tool as an aid to safeguard quality, people and the external environment.

An important part of all certifications, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001, is to have a good HSE culture (Health, Environment and Safety). A good HSE culture means that all employees understand the importance of working in a safe and sustainable way, and that they follow the HSE system and guidelines to maintain a safe workplace. A good HSE culture also means that everyone has the opportunity to come up with suggestions for improvement and input on how the company can work better and more efficiently, as well as a safe and accommodating management.

So, what exactly does this mean for HyCom?

Firstly, the certifications show that we have a well-functioning management system for quality, the environment and the working environment, which increases the trust in us among our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.

But this is just the beginning. We will continue to work hard to ensure high quality of the services we offer, safeguard environmental considerations in all aspects of our business, and ensure a safe and healthy working environment for our skilled employees.

We hope that our recertification will open new doors and give us even more opportunities. So keep your eyes open for us. – We will continue to do our best for our customers and partners, concludes Birthe.
