RSK is certified to OHSAS 18001 and monitors its performance through an integrated safety, health and quality environmental management system (SHEQMS). An in-house management team arranges regular audits and training to ensure the system is always up to date.
Since 2003, all RSK business operations have had to conform to the rigorous environmental criteria defined by the ISO 14001 management system. This demands that:
All potential and actual environmental aspects pertaining to our premises and projects are identified
The resulting impacts (direct and indirect) are assessed and, where appropriate, suitable control measures implemented.
