19261NOF Energy member, Dyer Engineering has secured two international quality accreditations, which recognise its green credentials and comprehensive health and safety procedures.

The company has been awarded ISO:14001 and OHA:18001 certifications, which acknowledge a sustained effort to reduce any environmental impacts and that its health and safety standards create safe working conditions, respectively.

Following a prolonged period of growth, which included diversification into new markets, Dyer Engineering set out to earn the accreditations to demonstrate to potential clients, which audit its facility as part of the contracting process, that health & safety and the environment are high on its agenda.

The project team responsible for the ISO and OHA applications had originally set out to achieve the formal accreditation over a 12 month periods, however, actually realised their goals in only 10 months.

Dyer Engineering is aiming to continue its growth on the back of this success, which allows both existing and prospective customers to be provided with evidence of the company’s focus on occupational health & safety is supported by a fully documented range of processes that adhere to internationally recognised standards. 

Graeme Parkins, Managing Director of Dyer Engineering, said: “Industry is placing increased importance on the way in which products are being created and the environmental impact of manufacturing processes.

“This is a very positive trend – one which encouraged us to gain formal recognition for the existing procedures and considerations we already incorporate into our operations.

“The accreditations are the culmination of a lot of hard work from all of our employees; the team should take great pride in what we have achieved.” 

Paul Livingston, Business Development Manager at NOF Energy, said: “Dyer Engineering has been a key player in the North East’s supply chain for many years and it’s great to see its efforts to act in a safe and responsible manner have been recognised as a leading example.”
