IMS report 2018
REVIEW OF THE INTEGRATED HEALTH, SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
This Review takes into consideration the input data for the year 2018 (namely data relating to purchases, consumption and the relevant indicators, in addition to some “environmental performance” key values. Reference is made to the period elapsing between 1st November 2017 and 31st October 2018), from which opportunities for improvement can be identified for the year 2018.
The second surveillance audit was carried out by Dekra in 2018 from 20th to 22nd February.
The environmental and safety audits planned for the reference period were regularly conducted in 2018.
As many as 11 audits on the quality system and the operating procedures and 14 environment-safety tours were formalized.
STATISTICS ON NON-COMPLIANCE, ACCIDENTS AND INJURIES
A total of 13 non-conformities emerged from internal audits (+7 observations/opportunities for improvement) and 53 from periodic environment-safety tours.
Throughout 2018, 6 injuries occurred (only one of which required action and was consequently processed), which were included among non-conformities.
A total of 12 near-misses and 2 environment-safety non-conformities were reported, all of which were handled according to the procedure. (It is worth mentioning that in 2018, as a result of the awareness-raising action carried out in the various departments, both on managers and employees, we had a higher number of near-misses reports: 12 in 2018 and 2 in 2017.
One corrective action only was taken to remedy the non-conformities found during audits or environment-safety tours.
This action is still in progress and is expected to be completed by 31/03/2019.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT
The Dekra audit revealed 9 opportunities for improvement, which were taken into due account and completed by the company.
For the year 2018, the following 3 improvement projects have been planned:
1. Management of time schedules using Safety Solution software: an ongoing project subject to continuous maintenance. Most of the activities subject to expiry are included in the software, which ensures timely compliance, except for maintenance services on machines, which are managed by the All-on-One software.
2. Adaptation of the Environmental Management to ISO 14001:2015: successfully completed and audited by the certifying body at the end of February 2018
3. The Purchase of SMART-IN visitor access control: project abandoned.
TRAINING AND COMMUNICATION
In 2018, a series of training sessions were conducted on the environment and safety, typically following situations found to be non-compliant.
In addition, in-house training sessions of newly hired personnel were held on environmental and safety issues.
Mandatory training required by law was provided to newly hired personnel on safety issues and refresher courses were held for all employees.
Training sessions were also held on the Emergency Plan (December 2018).
PARTICIPATION AND CONSULTATION (SAFETY) - including ELEMENTS RESULTING FROM MEETINGS WITH WORKERS’ SAFETY REPRESENTATIVES (WSRs)
A meeting was held by the Prevention and Protection Service on 17th December 2018, in accordance with art. 35 of Italian Legislative Decree no. 81/08, in addition to an extraordinary meeting requested by the WSRs on 16th March.
A further 9 meetings were held to assess the work-related stress.
The documentation regarding the above meeting is stored in the Safety Solution software.
From a legislative point of view, Metal Work took due note of the new statutory requirements and changed, as necessary, business operations and procedures.
No particular requests or pressure on environmental and safety issues were received from the local community and customers.
ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE DATA AND INDICATORS
No. of fines=0;
No. of factory accidents=0;
Limits exceeded on the total of analyses performed: none;
No. of complaints/reports from interested parties= 0.
SIGNIFICANCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS
The environmental aspect initially identified and upgraded in 2003 are still considered valid; the emission of Volatile Organic Substances (VOS) was eliminated, since no tetrachloroethylene has been purchased since 2013, following a change in technology.
An initial environmental assessment of the Via Borsellino plant was made at the beginning of 2016.
No process changes entailing any additions/modifications to the environmental aspects and significance were made in 2018.
Given the process of adaptation of the environmental management system to rev. 2015 of the ISO 14001 standard, a new Quality Policy was issued in October 2017.
In 2018, in view of adapting the Occupational Health and Safety Management System to UNI ISO 45001, a new revision of the Quality Policy was issued.
It contains the commitments that Management had already represented in the previous policy, with the addition of the aspects relating to the new standard.
VALIDITY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THE DOCUMENTS
Most of the documents relating to the environmental and safety management system were reviewed in 2018 to adapt them to UNI ISO 45001:2018.
Some documents, such as the Policy, the “Context Analysis of Stakeholders and their Expectations”, the “Analysis of environment/safety-related management process risks” were modified.
The Management System Manual was modified accordingly.
The scope is always the same and is still considered valid, with the addition of the Via Borsellino production site in 2016.
