Aquatec Celebrates Its 30th Anniversary Helping the Preservation of Marine Environment
We are delighted to announce that Aquatec has just started its 31st year in business. We celebrate it with a novel online click-and-raise landing page. For every click on the corporate timeline, we will add an amount up to a fixed sum that will be donated from our own funds to the Marine Conservation Society.
With this action we commemorate our three decades in the industry creating instruments and services aimed at safeguarding marine mammals, as well as measuring, logging, communicating and interpreting underwater data.
Aquatec upgrades its Occupational Health and Safety Management System
In line with our continuous commitment and dedication to providing our stakeholders with exceptional standards of quality, health and service, we have just been awarded the ISO 45001:2018 Certification. We have fully migrated to the new Occupational Health and Safety Management System from the old OHSAS 18001.
The new certification guarantees that we meet strict criteria in our scope of operations and daily activities. Also, it underlines the importance that we place on providing quality services, as well as preserving the environment and looking out for the health of our clients, suppliers and team members.
ISO 45001 focuses on:
• Protecting the physical, psychological and mental health of workers
• Controlling risks
• Providing protection against injury and/or ill health
• Providing a safe and healthy workplace
Our systems are also accredited and have just been recertified by the international ISO9001 and ISO 14001 standards.
Aquatec at MASTS 2020
It has been a great week for Aquatec at MASTS 2020, the 10th Annual Science Meeting held by The Marine Alliance For Science and Technology For Scotland. Due to Covid-19 restrictions still in place, the event was held virtually. During the meeting, we looked back at the significant progress made during 2020, and looked forward to 2021, which sees the start of the decade of ocean science for sustainable development. We also examined the modern challenges that face our marine waters, and identified ways and means to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.

The world has changed dramatically since this novel coronavirus was identified on 7 January 2020, and more so after the World Health Organization declared early in March that the outbreak of COVID – 19 was a pandemic. As doors closed around the globe, people, businesses and organisations entered uncharted waters.
We had to learn different ways of working and communicating. Now, as many countries begin to slowly lift lockdown restrictions, companies have to adjust again, this time to the new scenario created by the pandemic. At Aquatec, we are closely monitoring current events and taking every step necessary to keep our customers, partners and team safe. Today, we are glad to inform that some of our staff has been able to safely come back to the office knowing that thanks to our efforts, these work premises are a low-risk environment.
In compliance with the UK Government’s advice on how to work safely during the coronavirus and following all legal guides for businesses in the categories of Factories, plants and warehouses, Labs and research facilities as well as Offices and contact centres, we have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment in line with HSE guidance.
