Quality Management

Prosafe is committed to achieving and maintaining the highest standards of quality in its operations.

Documented processes, systems and reviews form the basis of the company’s quality systems. Through ISO and International Safety Management (ISM) standards, we maintain an up-to-date quality management system with an Integrated Safety and Environmental Management System.

The company’s quality management systems are certified to ISO 9001: 2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007. Prosafe will transition from OHSAS 18001 to the new ISO:45001 standard during the renewal audit in December 2020.

Safety management systems for the fleet are approved to the ISM code. Our accommodation vessels have been certified to the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) code. The company was not served enforcement notices by any Maritime Authority during 2019.

Prosafe’s vessels have International Air Pollution Prevention (IAPP) certificates, International Oil Pollution Prevention (IOPP) certificates and International Sewage Pollution Prevention (ISPP) certificates, all issued under MARPOL. These certificates are subject to periodic surveys.

Supplier follow-up

Prosafe encourages suppliers, consultants and other business partners within its sphere of influence to observe the company’s Core Values, Code of Conduct and its standards for corporate social responsibility, health and safety, the environment, quality assurance and training and competence.

ESG is focused upon throughout the procurement process, from the pre-qualification of vendors, to entering into contracts, and in supplier audits. The main tool for ensuring ESG implementation in the supply chain is the Prosafe Approved Supplier Verification Questionnaire, which requests suppliers to sign and commit themselves to following Prosafe’s ESG principles

Suppliers are subject to the same standards as used by Prosafe within its Integrated Management System. Through planned, scheduled and follow-up efficacy monitoring and audit activities, Prosafe will review and verify that defined standards and requirements are met.

Suppliers are expected to:

  • respect all individuals and basic human rights standards
  • comply with applicable laws and regulations
  • conduct their business without bribery or corruption
  • engage in fair competition
  • uphold labour standards and prevailing trade union agreements (if applicable)
  • uphold and support Prosafe’s Core Values and Code of Conduct

Prosafe conducted three supplier audits in 2019. These audits included focus on Environment, Social and Governance, including self assessment status, measures in place, objectives, ambitions and targets.

The Company’s supplier audits during 2020 will increase focus on ESG including self assessment status, measures in place, objectives, ambitions and targets.

Audits

Prosafe measures achievement of continual improvement through internal, external and third-party audits. A total of 56 audits were carried out in 2018, including seven by clients and eighteen by certification bodies and authorities. Prosafe conducted three supplier audits in 2018.

Our supplier and subcontractor audits during 2019 will include specific focus on Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) including self-assessment status, measures in place, objectives, ambitions and targets.

The output from all these audits is used as tools to assess the continued suitability and implementation of the Company’s Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality Management Systems and input to the business strategy and goals and focus of department and function plans.

Prosafe remains committed to safe and compliant operations at all times and the vessel continues to operate safely and efficiently.

Contingency plans

Prosafe has established contingency plans to limit harm to people, the environment and material assets. These plans will ensure that correct, relevant and timely information is provided to the outside world if and when required.

We carry out regular emergency response training and exercises in cooperation with our customers and third parties to ensure that we are as well prepared as possible to deal with a potential crisis.
