Glacier Energy’s Inspection Services Division Has Quality at the Forefront of its Practices

21st February 2022

For over 40 years, Glacier Energy’s inspection services division has provided clients with market-leading conventional and advanced non-destructive testing and inspection services for new-build fabrication and assembly and repair & maintenance projects across the renewables, oil & gas, petrochemicals and power generation industries. The broad range of inspection services offered can help clients reduce risk and ensure quality & accuracy in-line with all regulatory requirements.

Quality is at the forefront of the inspection services division. The team has been working hard to uphold the highest industry standards and are committed to ensuring that these are continually met and adhered to. The team has been approved by the Lloyds register for accreditations ISO 14001:2015, ISO 45001:2018, ISO 9001:2015. In addition to this, Glacier Energy’s inspection services division has satisfied all the requirements to become fully registered on the JOSCAR supplier accreditation register, achieved safe contractor accreditation, NDT on classification projects in accordance with class programme DNVGL-CP-0484 and a certificate of assurance complies with the requirements of the cyber essentials scheme. The work of the inspection services division demonstrates that they are working to best practice whilst displaying their abilities to our clients and stakeholders.

Glacier Energy are regularly looking to upskill their existing workforce. Debbie Lee, Operations Advisor within the inspection services division is currently completing her ISO17020 audit course and making a fantastic contribution to the team’s success. Debbie's transferable skills allow her to undertake this course and means she will become an internal auditor. This supports Glacier Energy as an independent and impartial auditor for ISO9001, 14001 and 45001 thus ensuring continued certification for the business units and the group, forming part of the Glacier Energy audit pool. This also ensures compliance with statute, regulations & standards that apply to Glacier Energy and ensures there is no conflict of interest and maintains impartiality and integrity to the ISO17020 standard.

As Glacier Energy is focused on continual improvement, additional employees having the ability to knowledgably promote the importance of ISO17020 within the organisation is important.

Therefore, in the coming months, additional members of the inspection team will also be requalifying and undertaking internal audit training.

David Jensen, QHSE Manager commented on the recent achievements and said “Our achievements have highlighted the importance of UCAS and has showed the competency of our existing workforce. It has also reinforced the need for our existing workforce to upskill and our focus now is our contribution to maintain accreditation ISO17020 and continue to adhere to the highest safety standards”.
