Osiris attains key safety association membership

Osiris Marine Services has gained a vital health and safety membership of the Remote Systems and ROV division of the IMCA (International Maritime Contractors Association).

Osiris offshore (now part of James Fisher Marine Services) manager James Ridgeway explains:

“In order to join IMCA you have to comply with a fairly strict series of practices in terms of quality assurance, quality control, safety management and maintenance. We are proud to have achieved this, which reflects well not just on the services we provide, but also on the continued hard work and efforts of our staff.”

Large organisations such as BP and Shell – companies that increasingly see IMCA membership as obligatory for contractors – will audit the next stage of Osiris’s accreditation. This achievement therefore counts as a vital enabler for the company, as it pushes for new business in the oil and gas sector, especially in the emerging markets of West and East Africa.

Osiris managing director Aiden West adds:

“The IMCA membership we have achieved relates to diving and ROV operations, which is an area where we aim to grow in both capacity and strength. This is an important organisation for us to engage with as the IMCA is much more than a mere trade association. It is a procedural body putting systems in place that give the maritime community a structure to work to, in turn reassuring customers that their suppliers are compliant in regards to safety. The IMCA rightly keeps standards extremely high, so the achievement of membership in the ROV division highlights just what a strong position Osiris is in, and I have no doubt that it will lead to more work in the future.”
