Yokogawa: a leader in health and safety

Yokogawa Australia has become one of only two industrial automation and control companies operating in Australia to achieve certification in the soon to be recognised international Occupational Health & Safety Management System standard, the OHSAS 18001:2007.
 
The recognition follows several months’ development and implementation of updated health, safety and environment systems, developed in-house by Yokogawa.
 
The Certificate of Approval was presented to Yokogawa Managing Director (Australia and New Zealand), John Hewitt, by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance Limited (LRQA) representative, Rob Fornasari, in Sydney late last year.
 
Also present to receive the certification was Yokogawa’s Health Safety and Environment Advisor, Anita Mac, who was the lead designer of Yokogawa Australia’s health and safety systems.
 
The OHSAS 18001:2007 and AS/ NZ 4801:2001certifications cover the entire gambit of Yokogawa’s local operations, from configuration, project management, engineering, testing, procurement, sales and marketing and service of process control instrumentation, control systems and monitoring equipment right through to warehousing, logistics and office environment.
 
According to Mr Fornasari, the successful audit and LQRA certification underscored Yokogawa’s commitment to the safety of its people and their compatriots.
 
This approach also mirrors the emphasis on safety and environment by Yokogawa’s customers in the oil and gas, minerals processing, energy and utilities sectors.
 
LRQA has conducted audits at various Yokogawa offices in Australia to determine how Yokogawa has applied its OH&S Management System in light of the applicable standards including both the currently applicable Australian Standard AS/NZS 4801:2001 and the OHSAS 18001:2007 standard which is likely to become a new international standard.
