Vivo Energy Mauritius gets triple ISO certification, the highest distinction given to any company
Vivo Energy Mauritius, the company which owns the Shell franchise in Mauritius has been awarded ISO 45001: 2018 certification for its depots, the latest international standard which establishes requirements in terms of health and safety at work. With this certification, Vivo Energy Mauritius becomes the first oil company in Mauritius to hold three ISO certifications for its deposits.
ISO 45001, which replaces the OHSAS 18001 management system, is an international standard specifying occupational health and safety requirements to continuously improve safety in advance, with the ambition of achieving "the objective zero”. Vivo Energy Mauritius has been inspected and audited by AJA, a world-renowned third-party certifier, which confirms that the oil company operates in a secure environment.
''The project team has worked transparently since early 2019 to meet the requirements of this standard. Today, this result confirms our ambitions in terms of security and further strengthens Vivo Energy's leadership on the Mauritian market," explains Ashvin Ramdenee, Distribution Manager of Vivo Energy Mauritius.
After ISO 9001: 2015 certification for the implementation of quality management systems and ISO 14001: 2015 for the environmental management system, this new accreditation brings the number of ISO certifications for Vivo Energy Mauritius to three. Triple ISO certification is the highest distinction given to any company seeking excellence through the implementation of quality management systems.
''Serving the interests of our stakeholders and respecting our commitment to excellence are at the heart of our daily operations. This triple ISO certification demonstrates that Vivo Energy Mauritius remains focused on its work culture while consolidating its image of the most respected energy company in Mauritius, in line with the vision of Vivo Energy," explains Matthias de Larminat, Managing Director of Vivo Energy Mauritius.
Triple ISO certification will allow Vivo Energy Mauritius to improve its products and services to continue to meet the needs of its customers while relying on innovation and excellence. It is also associated with a range of benefits that would benefit the oil company, its stakeholders and the industry as a whole.
