Shell affirms commitment to Goal Zero by earning first ISO 45001:2018 standard in Thailand from MASCI
Oct 16, 2018
The Shell Company of Thailand Limited reaffirmed its commitment to Goal Zero at a ceremony to celebrate the recognition of the Chong Nonsi Terminal, Samut Songkhram Depot, Lampang Depot, and Khon Kaen Depot with the new ISO 45001:2018 occupational health and safety management standard from the Management System Certification Institute (MASCI), the first company in Thailand to receive this certification from MASCI.
Mr. Asada Harinsuit, Chairman, The Shell Company of Thailand Limited, said: “I would like to commend all the teams at Shell Thailand for their hard work in earning the new ISO 45001:2018 standard from MASCI. This is truly a great accomplishment because it directly contributes to the safety of our company, the environment and the local communities in which we operate. Shell is one of the first companies in Thailand to be officially certified with the new standard by MASCI, with the certification expected to support workplace risk reduction and safety conditions, both of which are important aspects of Shell’s Goal Zero ambition. A driving force behind this accomplishment is Shell’s intention to ‘Make Life’s Journey Better’ through our innovation, partnership, and people, with our sustainability approach being one of the many ways that we are working towards this goal.”
Mr. Lertsak Cholvibul, Country Health, Safety, Security, and Environment (HSSE) Manager, added that recognition with the new ISO 45001:2018 standard was a testament to the importance that Shell places on people and partnership. He said, “Shell Thailand’s continual improvement of core value safety standards is in line with our ambition to achieve no harm, no leaks, and no incidents. By following both the existing Shell Global HSSE Framework and the new ISO 45001:2018 standard, everyone at Shell will be able to work safely and return home safely to their family and loved ones every day, and communities will also be protected. The new certification also reflects Shell’s emphasis on safety in our business partnerships, so that our customers, partners, and suppliers can be assured of our company’s world-class safety standards. At the same time, we have continually shared our company’s safety management experience with everyone we work with so that they can develop their own safety mindsets and practices. In addition, Shell supports energy management, waste management, sustainable transformation, and nature offset, reflecting our focus on both safety and good environmental management.”
Ms. Punnee Angsusingha, Director of MASCI, praised Shell Thailand for its achievement. “I would like to congratulate Shell for receiving the new ISO 45001:2018 certification, the first company in Thailand to do so. This strongly reflects Shell’s commitment to continual investment and innovation, especially in the areas of safety, environment and social development. Keeping safety as a core business value, Shell has brought positive impacts, prosperity and clean energy to our country, which together will play a major role in the nation’s growth. This certification will also set a new safety standard for Thailand, one that meets international standards and helps our country realize a better environmental system.
