Solace Internal Auditing

Solace Global Maritime, a leading private maritime security company (PMSC), has confirmed its commitment to implementing international standards by training internal auditors.


Already certified to ISO 9001, 18001 and 14001, the company is one of the first PMSCs to have conducted such training in preparation for the new ISO PAS 28007 accreditation, Guidelines for Private Maritime Security Companies.


The two day course was attended by four employees and hosted internally at Solace’s head office by the company’s QSHE Manager, Tony Hanson, a qualified lead assessor. Its purpose was to help attendees understand the application of Management System standards and how to effectively collate and analyse evidence to ensure they have been implemented effectively.  


Solace’s internal auditors were hand-picked from across departments within the company and will be responsible for auditing each of the business functions at least once every 12 months to identify any opportunities for continual improvement.
 

Managing Director, David Peach, commented: “The implementation of international standards takes time, money and resources. Such a commitment would be a lost cause if we didn’t also commit to maintaining these standards or look at ways that we can progress our Quality Management Systems. We therefore made a supreme effort to train internal auditors in preparation for ISO PAS 28007 stage 1 accreditation.”


Tony Hanson, Solace’s QSHE Manager, added: “With increasing pressures on our industry to tighten up statutory and regulatory requirements, implementation of management and operational standards is a key tool we can use to demonstrate compliance and provide a mechanism for continual improvement.


“We are leading the way in cross standard auditing, a major benefit of implementing an integrated management system.  Our clients can feel confident and reassured in the knowledge that we are at the top of our game. We are grateful to our board of Directors for the unwavering support and commitment to development, implementation and more importantly ongoing maintenance of these systems.”
