Health & Safety
Probe is utterly committed to undertaking business in such a way as to minimise the risks of injury or ill-health to our people and damage to property. As part of their commitment to safety excellence, they have attained OHSAS 18001 certification as part of the company’s overall Integrated Management System (IMS). The rigorous health and safety policy is in place to protect their employees against possible occupational risks and reduces the likelihood of accidents in the workplace.

Probe is committed to protecting the environment from avoidable harm. Within their Environmental Management System (EMS), they have incorporated the requirements of ISO 14001 and gained full certification. Probe believes their current business activities, and status of business development, constitute a limited environmental impact.

Probe’s philosophy of a responsive, practical service is at the heart of our approach to quality management. They have implemented a formal IMS and have gained certification to ISO 9001 – 2008. Their dedicated in-house quality team has recently been expanded to help continue to raise the quality bar as the business grows – they keep their equipment certified and ready to mobilise on a moment’s notice, and just as importantly, communicate quality issues across the entire business.

Probe is licensed by the American Petroleum Institute (API) to manufacture and monogram products conforming to API specification 6A. API 6A is the worldwide accepted standard for the manufacture and production of wellhead and Christmas tree equipment. This quality standard is also audited and registered with API in accordance with the prestigious API Q1.

Probe is registered to the ISO 9001:2015 Management System Standard for the manufacture of oilfield equipment including wellhead equipment and associated parts, downhole tools, crossovers and general subcontracting machining services by the accreditation body DNV GL.
