Paradigm Intervention Technologies, the provider of enhanced digital and fibre enabled slickline for the upstream oil and gas industry, has achieved certification to ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Management Standard.
Paradigm Intervention Technologies is one of the first in the sector to achieve this certification which forms part of a continual process of improving health and safety systems for the benefit of employees, clients and joint venture partners.
This latest Standard, published in May 2018, is based on OHSAS 18001 with additional requirements to improve the effectiveness of management systems and align with Quality Standard ISO 9001:2015 and Environmental Standard ISO 14001:2015.

This accomplishment builds on our ISO 9001 certification as part of our integrated management system”.
The International Organisation for Standardisation summarises the standard as; ISO 45001:2018 specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, and gives guidance for its use, to enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health, as well as by proactively improving its OH&S performance.
Creighton continues, “The certification process consisted of a gap analysis and rigorous two stage audit process conducted by the UKAS Accredited British Assessment Bureau and will require annual surveillance audits to evaluate continued compliance”.
