Health and Safety
Ethics in RESMAN describes our ethical standards and requirements and applies to employees, board members, consultants and others who act on RESMAN’s behalf. This is detailed in our code of conduct. The company recognizes that HSE best practice is also a business best practice and we are working hard towards a goal of zero harm to people and the environment.
- Our HSE Management System has been certified to OHSAS 18001:2007.
- ISO certifications: ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004
Customer satisfaction and the quality of our products and deliveries are priorities to RESMAN.
For this reason we have developed an integrated QHSE Management system to maintain a good process for the continuous improvement of our daily business. This has also been certified to ISO 9001:2008.
RESMAN has a strong commitment to the protection of the environment and we continually strive to improve the potential impact we might have. Our tracer products are present in the produced water in extremely low concentrations, comparable to a few grains of sugar in a million litres of water.
Furthermore, RESMAN continually works to develop even more environmentally friendly tracers. The company has a policy of NOT using radioactive tracers – EVER.
Sooner or later almost all hydrocarbon producing wells will also start to produce water. In the Norwegian part of the North Sea, there is actually a higher production of water than hydrocarbons since 2006. The produced water is treated and reinjected, or discharged to sea, constituting one of the most important sources of pollution to sea from the oil industry.
By use of RESMAN’s monitoring technology, operators have information that can allow them to optimize the production of hydrocarbons and reduce significantly the production of water. In this way, the environmental impact of the oil industry can be reduced. RESMAN is certified to ISO 14001:2004.
RESMAN has recognized that the best way to manage its business activities is through an integrated quality, health, safety and environment management system in order to achieve continuous improvements in all areas.
RESMAN is committed to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
RESMAN will promote a positive HSE culture ensuring active participation of all employees and subcontractors. We will strive to manage all HSE risks with the goal of preventing accidents, injuries, occupational illnesses whilst considering the environment.

Our objectives are:
- Work to eliminate Quality, HSE, IP and ethics incidents

We will comply with applicable laws and regulations and act in an ethical, sustainable and socially responsible manner, with respect for human rights. These ethical guidelines are not only about avoiding breaches of applicable laws and regulations, but provide the framework for what RESMAN considers responsible and good behavior with respect to business practice/activities and personal conduct.
RESMAN will maintain an open dialogue on ethical issues, internally and externally. High ethical standards as the basis for a trust‐based and binding relationship with the community, our owners, employees, customers and suppliers are important for us.
We will compete in a fair and ethically justifiable manner within the framework of the competition rules in the markets in which we operate. This applies in relation to competitors as well as to customers and suppliers. RESMAN meets all business associates with insight, respect and understanding, and we strive to treat all cases impartially and justly. We also expect and require our competitors, as well as our customers and suppliers to comply with applicable laws, regulations and standards, and to respect our ethical values and requirements.
Our business information will be communicated accurately and fully, both internally and externally.
Information must be correct, registered and reproduced in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
Corruption undermines fair competition and legitimate business activities. RESMAN disassociates itself from all forms of corruption and will make active efforts to ensure that it does not occur in the business activities. Corruption includes bribery and extortion. RESMAN does not under any circumstances accept or offer bribes or any illegal or inappropriate gifts that may affect our integrity or ability to achieve business objectives.
RESMAN does not support individual political parties or individual politicians. RESMAN will not make financial contributions to any political candidates or political parties. To the extent necessary RESMAN may participate in public debate when and if it is in our interests. Individuals are free to participate in democratic political activities, but this must be without reference to or in connection with their relationship to RESMAN.
RESMAN will show respect for all individuals and make active efforts to ensure a good working environment. RESMAN does not accept any form of discrimination of its own employees or others involved in RESMAN`s activities. Discrimination includes all unequal treatment, exclusion or preference on the basis of race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, political views, national or ethnic origin or other similar circumstances that results in the setting aside or compromising of the principle of equality.
Everyone who acts on behalf of RESMAN must abide by applicable laws and regulations, and carry out his or her duties in accordance with the requirements and standards that apply in RESMAN. It is important to treat each individual with courtesy and respect. Individuals must not behave in a manner that can offend local customs or culture.
RESMAN’s property and assets must be treated in a proper manner and be used for the purpose which it is intended to serve. Property and assets must be protected against loss, damage and abuse. All intellectual property developed and/or produced while in the employment of and/or contractual relation with RESMAN belongs to RESMAN, and should be treated accordingly. All employees and contractors are obliged to notify RESMAN of all inventions and/or discoveries, and the company automatically acquires full and unconditional rights including intellectual property rights to such inventions and/or discoveries to the extent permitted by law and/or agreed in separate contracts. The duty of confidentiality should prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to information that may harm RESMAN`s business or reputation. We should therefore consider carefully with whom, where and how we talk about matters related to RESMAN, in order to ensure that unauthorized persons do not gain access to internal RESMAN information.

While in the employment of, and/or contractual relation with RESMAN, the obligation not to participate in any business activities or organizations, either directly or indirectly, which is in competition with RESMAN’s business, shall apply.
