Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd. has achieved a triple certification after an audit performed by independent international auditor DNV GL in June. For five days the DNV GL auditors examined Quality Management, Health and Safety and Environmental Management at company headquarters in Edinburgh and two of the windfarm sites that Deutsche Windtechnik manages in Scotland. The certificates attest that the British subsidiary of Deutsche Windtechnik AG meets the highest level of quality, health, safety and environmental protection (QHSE) requirements.
The QHSE department at Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd. in Edinburgh has steadily developed the appropriate management systems since November 2015 in order to conform to the international standards for Occupational Health and Safety (OSHAS 18001:2007), Quality Management (ISO 9001:2015) and Environmental Management (ISO 14001:2015).
Commendation for emergency response
"We are one of the first wind industry service companies to fulfil the requirements of the new versions of the standards (2015) for both quality and environmental management. This assures market participants in the UK that their assets are safe in our hands with quality and environmental management at the core of our business operations", said a pleased Steven King, Senior QHSE Advisor at Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd. To assure continuous improvement and compliance, DNV GL will audit Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd. every nine months.
In addition to this success for the QHSE department, Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd. was also awarded the RenewableUK Energy Health and Safety Awards runners up prize last November for Health and Safety performance for an in-house QHSE app that is used by all field staff.
Steven King added: "We are now in a strong position to integrate our management system further and meet the new requirements of new ISO 45001, which is scheduled to be published next year. This will be a natural transition with minimal change to our current management system due to the 2015 edition of the standards that we have achieved for both quality and environmental management." By investing in this project, Deutsche Windtechnik AG is showing its UK customers that it is committed to meeting the highest standards for Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental management for all of its operations.
