Gearing Towards QHSE Management System Certifications

Port Klang: In line with its long term strategic plan, Port Shipyard & Engineering Sdn Bhd (PSE) is currently in the process of improving its quality management system by implementing ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 standards.

As a widely-recognized evaluation criteria within the shipbuilding industry, ISO 9001 quality management certification is definitely a determining factor in penetrating a larger market. Successfully passing this authentication is crucial and will allow Port Shipyard to obtain broader space for development in an increasingly fierce market competition environment.

Implementing all 3 major standards will require extreme dedication by all departments and is estimated to take approximately 12months to complete. Implementing ISO 9001 will be the first phase of this exercise with OHSAS 18001 to follow suit.

“There’s a whole lot of work to be done but nothing is impossible. We just need to take one step at a time. Eventually everything will be in place within this year”, said Jef Azrul Nizam, newly appointed Safety Officer of PSE.

Upon successfully implementing the standards, yearly supervision and revision exercises will be performed by the authentication body to ensure all processes remain in check.
