The British Safety Council for occupational health and safety has awarded its five-star rating to Drydocks World.

The council had conducted a detailed, quantified and objective audit on the company, which is an international service provider to the shipping, offshore, oil, gas and energy sectors.

Drydocks World’s management continually focuses on principles that enhance operational excellence, provide sustainable development and create a culture to increase the safety of employees, a statement said.

The British Safety Council’s Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit provides organisations with a worldwide benchmark of their safety management systems against current best practices to enable continual improvement.

The audit specification includes performance measurements on leadership and continuous improvement as management indicators, said the statement.

Within the revised audit, the British Safety Council has placed a greater emphasis on the organisations’ approach to occupational health, employee wellbeing, safety culture, allocation of resources to health and safety, and planning to stimulate productivity and innovation, it added.

In other news, Drydocks World successfully completed its first Rig Integrity Assurance Programme (RIAP) on rig Diyina for the National Drilling Company (NDC), and the first EPCC concept rig project the yard has undertaken.

“The successful completion of rig Diyina is a reflection of Drydocks World’s capabilities and our dedication to addressing the refurbishment requirements of offshore drilling rigs,” the yard said.

Drydocks World has completed 17 projects for NDC with rig Diyina being the first RIAP project. On rig Diyina 2,000 tonnes of steel, 17 km of piping, 180 km of cabling and approximately 90,000 sq m of painting work has been carried out. With over 3 million man-hours completed without lost time incidents, the achievement reflected the teamwork and synergy between Drydocks World and NDC, it said.
