MANAGEMENT REVIEW
ENVIRONMENT-SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

INTRODUCTION

This review takes into consideration the input data for the year 2016, which are taken as reference for possible improvements for the year 2017. In January 12 to 14, 2016 a certification renewal audit was conducted by Dekra (see audit report I-K-1015635).

GOAL ACHIEVEMENT PROGRESS

For the year 2016, five improvement projects were planned:

  • A reduction of energy consumption related to the use of compressed air: this project was suspended and it will probably reinstated in 2018
  • A review of the safety devices of all production machines: this project was implemented; it only remains a couple of lines to be reviewed and the project is expected to be completed throughout 2017.
  • Introduction of the minimum lubrication system: completed with success.
  • Replacement of PRF bulbs: currently in progress � the replacement will be effected as required and for subsequent zones.
  • Energy efficiency improvement: the project did not produce the expected results due to a calculation error (2.5% saving instead of 5%).
TRAINING AND COMMUNICATION

In 2016 some training sessions were held on environmental and safety issues, in addition to direct initial training for new recruits.
Mandatory refresher courses were held for persons in charge or prevention and protection (RSPP) and workers� safety (RLS); first-aid and fire-fighting refresher courses were also held.
Training sessions were held on the Emergency Plan as well (December 2016).

PARTICIPATION AND CONSULTATION (SAFETY) � including RLS MEETINGS' ELEMENTS

In 2016, five extraordinary meetings of the Prevention and Protection Service were held and reported on the "Meeting Minutes" form. Work stress assessments for certain departments were reviewed. The persons in charge of workers' safety requested that some situations had to be analysed and the results reported during periodical meetings.

EXTERNAL REQUIREMENTS

From a legislative point of view, Metal Work has taken note of the introduction of new legal requirements by modifying, wherever necessary, the operations and related procedures.
No particular requests or requirements on the environment or safety were received.

ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE DATA AND INDICATORS

All the data and indicators in this section apply to the entire 2016
No. of offenses=0;
No. of accidents=0;
limits exceeded on the total analyses performed: none;
No. of complaints/stakeholders' reports= 0.

Some indicators are shown in the attached charts.

CHANGE IN SURROUNDING CIRCUMSTANCES AND LEGAL REQUIREMENTS

Metal Work took into consideration the following:

ENVIRONMENT

  • Decree of the Prime Ministry of 21st December 2015 (published in the Official Journal no. 300 of 28/12/2015): approval of the single form of environmental declaration (MUD) for the year 2016, for waste produced and managed in 2015 - MUD MW sent on 27/04/2016.
  • Law Decree no. 210 of 30th December 2015: extension of the deadlines set by the law (so-called �Milleproroghe�): the coming into force of sanctions for adaptation to the SISTRI waste-tracking system was extended to 31/12/2016 (transition period for double registration).
  • Legislative Decree no. 102 of 4th July 2014 � Implementation of the Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU that requires the company to carry out an energy audit (already conducted and scheduled every 4 years).
  • Ministerial Decree no. 78/2016, new SISTRI waste-tracking system repealing the previous regulation no. 52/2011, published on the Italian Official Journal (GURI) no. 120 of 24/05/2016.
  • Law Decree no. 244 of 30th December 2016 � Extension and determination of deadlines - Art. 12 � Extension of deadlines regarding environmental issues (waste management transition scheme) � the deadline of so-called �dual track� system, i.e. traditional double waste tracking (register, forms, environmental declaration form) and computerised (SISTRI) waste tracking, was extended.

SAFETY

  • Ministerial Decree 12/07/2016: amendments related to the contents of annexes 3A and 3B of Legislative Decree no. 81 of 9th April 2008 and the modes of transmission of workers' aggregated healthcare and risk data (the worker's signature on the certificate of fitness is no longer required).
  • Legislative Decree no. 159 of 1st August 2016 � Implementation of Directive 2013/35/EU on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to hazards arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields) and the repealing Directive 2004/40/EC (16G00172) - the DVR needs to be reviewed.
  • Legislative Decree no. 151 of 14th September 2015. Article 21, subsection1, letters b), c), d), e), f), 2 and 3. Amendments to articles 53, 54, 56, 139, 238 and 251 of Presidential Decree no. 1124/1965. � simplification of accident reporting procedures to supervisory authorities.

SIGNIFICANCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES

The environmental issues that were initially identified and upgraded in 2003 are considered still valid with the few changes detailed below.

Following the introduction of the tumbling system, this process was incorporated among the environmental issues.
In June 2008, a new point of emissions into the atmosphere became fully operational (W10: dust and oil mist), but this does not entail any further environmental issues as it relates to the emission of substances already present in the factory.

For 2013, the company set itself the goal of eliminating the environmental issue concerning the emission into the atmosphere of volatile organic compounds (VOC) with risk phrases R40, as a consequence of the decommissioning of the small metal-washing machine that still used perchlorethylene as degreasing agent (point E9).

In September 2013, two new emission points became operational: E11 (cutting-off machine, sharpening machine and grinding wheel) and E12 (new metal-washing machine). The level of dust and oily mist emissions at point E11 is +IPA; point E12 for n-butyl alcohol and 1-butoxy-2-propanol.

The emissions of volatile organic substances (VOS) (formerly E5 and E9) were consequently eliminated: perchlorethylene purchases in 2013 were zeroed.

In 2015 the assembly bays were moved from Via Segni to the new premises in Via Borsellino; this involved no further environmental issues. An initial environmental analysis dedicated to the Via Borsellino site was conducted in the early months of 2016.

In 2016 the position of the points of emission into the atmosphere changed as a consequence of the transfer of the assembly bays to Via Borsellino. The environmental issues have not changed, however, since these emissions were already present at the company and were duly authorised.

A canteen service provided by a catering company has been in operation since January 9, 2017. This does not entail further environmental issues: it only entails an increase in the amount and type of waste to be disposed of (glass and organic fraction).

QUALITY POLICY ADEQUACY

As part of the system integration process, a new Quality Policy was released on 22/04/08.
It contains the commitments previously expressed by Top Management in two separate quality policies.
The goals for 2017 are in line with those expressed in the Quality Policy.
The company also agrees to review the document and the entire system structure in the light of the changes that have been made since the release of the ISO14001:2015 revision.
