The Environment, Health & Safety, Security and Quality (EHSS&Q) are fundamental to everything James Fisher Nuclear does. We, therefore, take an uncompromising approach to EHSS&Q and maintain a number of key certifications and accreditations.
James Fisher Nuclear (JFN) recognises that its Integrated Management System must be adhered to and continually improved. Operating the Integrated Management System to a high level minimises risks to both JFN and its customers, particularly given the hostile and challenging environments in which it works.
Where customers have specific industry or in-house requirements over and above general industrial standards, JFN has the required depth of competent resource and appropriate systems in place to be able to comply.
Information in relation to JFN’s Environmental, Health & Safety, Security and Quality policies can be made available to interested parties upon request.
