Advantis Bunkering was recently awarded the International Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series certification or OHSAS 18001:2007 by Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS), the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company.

The certification covers all three legal entities of the business; Moceti International (Pvt) Limited, Lanka Bunkering Services (Pvt) Limited and Lanka Maritime Services Limited.

“The safety of our employees is of paramount importance to us. Providing them with a safe working environment isa responsibility we take very seriously. This drives us to minimize risks associated with health and safety within the workplace.

This dedication has allowed us to maintain an impressive safety track record and this latest certification is further validation of our commitment to the highest safety standards,” said Director, Advantis Bunkering, Praneeth Gunawardena.

The OHSAS 18001:2007 certification was awarded following a stringent evaluation process of the health and safety standards maintained by the company. It ensures that all employees are trained to carry out all operational activities without incident and in the event of an incident are able to minimize and mitigate further adversities.

The OHSAS uses a management approach tool called the PDCA (Plan, DO, Check, Act) cycle, which is an ongoing process that enables an organization to establish, implement and maintain its health and safety policy based on top management leadership and commitment to the safety management system.
