A proactive certification approach

    Spac has been committed since 2003 to a proactive certification approach designed to complete projects in line with the needs of our customers, workers, and the environment. Our integrated Quality/Safety/Environment management system is a performance factor for the business, and also for you. Working with Spac means that you can be confident that the work is completed as set out in the relevant regulations: it’s about choosing peace of mind.

    Certification in line with NF EN ISO 9001 v2015

    In line with Spac’s drive towards continued improvement, the organisation strives to listen to expectations and to anticipate the needs of customers and partners through its certificated ISO 9001 Quality standard. That requirement encompasses the involvement of all our workers, and ensures that the standard is applied all the time, right across the deployment of all of our expertise.

    Certification in line with OHSAS 18001 v2007

    Spac’s Safety culture manifests itself through an unfailing commitment to safety at every level of the organisation. Our Health and Safety system is all about analysing and anticipating risks so as to contain accident occurrences and work-related illnesses. All our workers and partners are committed to and comply with our 13 Rules of Life, and our OHSAS 18001 certification a reflection and recognition of that. But safety cannot just be summed up in certification and rules of life - and so Spac has co-opted the support of the Institute for an Industrial Safety Culture (the ICSI) to maintain its safety culture on an everyday basis.  Spac’s Safety culture manifests itself through an unfailing commitment to safety at every level of the organisation.

    Certification in line with NF EN ISO 14001 v2015

    The world is changing around us, and more of us are paying attention to the environment. Spac is ISO 14001 certificated: we have a responsible and proactive approach to the environment. When we complete our projects and address your concerns, we are also preserving the future of our planet by minimising the impact of what we do through our measured consumption of resources.
    This triple certification is the management pillar of all our establishments, and of everything we do.  

    Certification in line with MASE standard MASE v2014

    MASE is a standard set up by businesses at the service of businesses. Its purpose is to improve the Health, Safety and Environment culture. Spac adheres to this certification – after all, every accident is avoidable, and no accident should be tolerated. The system completes and underpins our Health, Safety and Environment management. It is a recognition by our peers and customers that sit on our regional steering committees.

    Spac is MASE-certificated for seven establishments: Aulnay-sous-Bois, Bordeaux, Port-de-Bouc and Toulouse for Pipeline activity; Bordeaux for Industrial Projects activity; Nanterre for high-voltage subterranean Connections; Dunkirk for Water activity.

    Work to remove and encapsulate asbestos in line with NF X46-010

    Work to remove and encapsulate asbestos is subject to strict regulation. Spac makes use of tools to monitor exposure to asbestos and its dust, in addition to the methods it uses to remove and eliminate asbestos. We do that to preserve the health of our workers and also that of other relevant parties – as well as to clean up the environment. It’s a morally sound mindset that ensures that you are compliant with regulations.

    Spac is certificated in line with standard NF X010-46 for four establishments: Port-de-Bouc, Aulnay-sous- Bois, Châteaulin, and Hennebont. 

    Certification for service-providers in localising networks in line with NF S70-003-3

    As of 01 January 2018, service-providers that locate networks must be certificated in respect of detection and precise geo-referencing services (Class A). Like surveyor firms, Spac is certificated and has the resources and skills to geo-reference the network assemblies that we build. It’s a sign of confidence in the good execution of the information-gathering process for you, and for our operational entities.

    Spac is certificated in line with standard NF S70-003-3 for seven establishments: Aulnay-sous-Bois, Bordeaux et Toulouse for Pipeline activity; Bordeaux for Industrial projects activity; Gennevilliers and Saint- Germain-de-la-Grange for Gas and Electricity Distribution activity; Nanterre for high-voltage Subterranean Connections activity 
     

    Accreditation for inspection activities in line with NF EN ISO/CEI 17020 v2012

    Spac is accredited for the purposes of carrying out inspections - in other words, carrying out a final check that works comply with technical requirements, so that you can be sure that you are complying with regulatory requirements. Our accreditation process means that we ensure that you can be confident in the services carried out, and that they meet requirements relating to competence, transparency, impartiality and independence.
