Hertel awarded competitive safety standard
Hertel in Singapore has received international recognition for its health and safety standards. The multi-discipline construction and maintenance service provider has achieved OHSAS 18001: 2007 and SS 506: Part 1: 2009 accreditation.
The audit, which took six months to prepare, recognised Hertel as meeting stringent national and international occupational health and safety regulations. Hertel was required to provide evidence that it controls risk, reduces the potential for accidents and measures, monitors and improves on its performance.
The awards were presented by SGS, the international inspection, verification, testing and certification body, which is responsible for assessing that products, systems or services meet governmental requirements.
Des Yeo, Hertel’s HSEQ Manager in Singapore, said: “Meeting the highest safety standards is a pre-requisite for Hertel. Achieving SGS compliance demonstrates our health and safety commitment to clients and staff, who can be assured they are working with a company with safety at the heart of the business.
“Safety is a team effort and it’s thanks to the hard-work of all our staff that we are able to provide a safe and quality service.”
Hertel has been operating in Singapore since August 2007 and since then has acquired two other companies in the region, Kok Chang Scaffolding Ltd and Tong Hoi Engineering Services. Around 1,250 staff deliver scaffolding, insulation, painting, piping and mechanical services to a range of blue chip companies.
