Creocean obtained the OHSAS 18001 Certification


Our professions lead us to regularly intervene at sea to collect data on the environment that is dear to us, in sometimes difficult conditions.

« La mer est un espace de rigueur et de liberté. Y perdre la rigueur c'est perdre la liberté. »  Victor Hugo (Translation: The sea is a place of rigor and freedom. To lose rigor is to lose freedom)

In 2013, Creocean's management initiated a process to set up an HSE management system (Health, Safety and Environment) to ensure the safety of people and the preservation of the environment in all our activities, in the field as in the office. For this purpose, the "HSE Team" was created to develop the system from the OHSAS 18001 Standard and to make it live on a daily basis.

This initiative was based on the conviction that these themes must be at the forefront of all our concerns but also to meet the requirements of our industrial customers.

As a symbol of our commitment and effectiveness of the actions implemented, the Creocean head office in La Rochelle obtained, in July 2018, OHSAS 18001 Certification by Bureau Veritas.

To achieve the "zero accident" objective, our "HSE Charter" includes ten themes from which we have created a policy to control the risks associated with our activities with rigor and method but also to keep on improving at all times.

Today, one of the strengths of our HSE management system is the preparation of an "Implementation and Prevention Plan" for each field operation. The purpose of this document is to describe the operations from an organizational point of view and to evaluate the associated risks in order to reduce them to an acceptable level.

For the coming years, our ambition is to consolidate our achievements in terms of management of health and safety at work, both in the field and at the office, and to amplify our reflection on the environmental dimension of our activities in order to control their impact on the environment and to contribute to the preservation of biodiversity.
