ABS offers a complement of products and services that aid marine and offshore organizations in the management of their HSQEEn (Health, Safety, Quality, Environmental and Energy) programs and systems.
The ABS Guide for Marine Health, Safety, Quality, Environmental and Energy Management enhances marine management practices and further supports responsible management and operation of ships, prevention of pollution and improved energy performance. Companies that meet the requirements of this Guide can earn a certificate and additional notations in the ABS Record.
The Guide addresses important topics such as quality, pollution prevention and preservation of the environment. Its requirements are based on sound management system principles as reflected in: the ISM Code, Quality Management Systems requirements (ISO 9001), Environmental Management Systems requirements (ISO 14001), Energy Management Systems requirements (ISO 50001) and Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems requirements (OHSAS 18001).
