Over the last month, LRQA has visited two yards and one sister company from Damen Shiprepair & Conversion’s (DSC) global network to audit their management systems. The results of the auditing processes have been successful: firstly, in the Netherlands, Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam and Niron Staal received ISO 9001:2015 [quality], ISO 14001:2015 [environmental], and OHSAS 18001:2007 [health & safety] certifications, during audits conducted by LRQA, a member of the LRQA group. And secondly, in the Caribbean Sea, Damen Shiprepair Curaçao gained ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certification.
HSEQ Manager Harco Groen commented, “This certification is the result of a team effort here at Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam and Niron Staal; and we are proud of the outcome, which is a recognition of our management systems as well as positive feedback concerning our quality, skills, insight and learning abilities.”
“The fact that it covers two separate companies – which is, in fact, a first for Damen Shipyards Group – is a confirmation of the synergetic relationship between Damen Shiprepair and Niron Staal. This is something that our clients will really be able to benefit from.”
