NEW ISO 45001:2018 OHS CERTIFICATION

MIR VALVE has recently received the new ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems from Bureau Veritas.

ISO 45001:2018 now is part of ISO standard, replacing the OHSAS 18001:2007, thus following the same management system approach as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.

This standard internationally recognizes Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, propagating company-wide Occupational Health and Safety.

Fundamentally, it creates a culture that is everyone's responsibilities to support and protect a safe and healthy workplace by preventing injury, preventing ill health, reducing hazards and continually improving the OHS performance.

In a challenging and demanding world, customers and regulators are demanding top health and safety performance, thus having the ISO 45001:2018 certification is one way to reflect good OHS practice to these customer and regulators, but above all for us in the company.

As our company HSE motto says: Know Safety, No Injury.

DID YOU KNOW?

Trunnion ball valves confer the following main advantages over their floating ball counterparts:

1) The Double Block and Bleed Function 
2) Reduced Friction Torque which leads to significant cost savings with actuators

However, at smaller nominal pipe sizes (typically NPS 2 and below), these advantages diminish greatly since functionally from a Process Engineering point of view, there is little reason to have a double block and bleed function and the friction torques at these sizes are low enough to be operated manually. This is why drain/vent and instrumentation isolation tap-off connections are typically floating ball valves.

Floating ball valves are not API 6D.
