Advantis Projects and Advantis Engineering were awarded the International Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series certification or OHSAS 18001:2007, reinforcing its commitment to the highest standards of safety in its operations.
In an industry such as transportation and logistics, health and safety violations are identified as leading factors contributing to productivity loss. An incident can contribute to a reduced number of working days, delays in delivery, insurance costs, clean-up and repair costs, compensation and other associated costs.
The OHSAS certification ensures that all employees of Advantis Projects and Advantis Engineering are trained to carry out all operational activities without incident. In the event of an incident, all employees including the head of the company, have been fully trained to activate programmes designed that will minimize and mitigate any further adversities. The OHSAS certification also requires a full set of manuals outlining the processes and responsibilities in case of an incident. “We have carried out a number of mega projects with zero incidents and have maintained a very high health and safety track record over the years. The OHSAS certification helps us reinforce our commitment to our employees and our customers that we care about their wellbeing as well as their business” said Shadil Rizan, General Manager of Advantis Projects.
Advantis Engineering and Advantis projects, formerly known as Logiventures (Pvt) Ltd ,are fully owned subsidiaries of Hayleys Advantis Limited, the transportation and logistics arm of Hayleys PLC. The Group has served the Sri Lankan logistics industry for over 50 years and continues to uplift the standards of the industry by enhancing its people, processes and systems at all times. They are the only Integrated Logistics Company offering both Project Logistics and Engineering Solutions to be awarded OHSAS 18001:2007 in Sri Lanka.
