IMS report 2017
REVIEW OF THE INTEGRATED HEALTH, SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
This review takes into account input data for the year 2017, on the basis of which considerations can be made and possible improvements can be achieved for the year 2018.
A certification renewal audit was conducted by Dekra in 2017 from 7Th to 9Th February.
The Health & Safety and Environmental audits planned for the reference period were duly conducted in 2017.
Eleven audits on the system and operating procedures and 5 environment-safety tours were performed during the year.
STATISTICS ON NON-CONFORMITIES, ACCIDENTS AND INJURIES
A total of 12 non-conformities emerged from internal audits and 9 from the environment-safety tours.
In 2017 there occurred 6 accidents, counted among non-conformities, 5 of which were classified as accidental events, which, therefore, did not require any corrective action.
In addition, 2 near-misses and 2 environment-safety non-conformities were found, all of which were handled under the related procedure.
CORRECTIVE ACTION / PREVENTIVE ACTION
As a remedy to non-conformities found during audits or environment-safety tours, only one corrective action was required.
This action is still in progress and is expected to be completed by 31/03/2018.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT
The Dekra audit identified 9 opportunities for improvement, which the company duly took into consideration and achieved.
1. Improvement in lubricant-coolant management: this project is being implemented.
2. Adaptation of the Environmental Management System to ISO 14001:2015: operations completed.
TRAINING AND COMMUNICATION
In 2017 a series of training sessions on environmental and safety issues were held in view of remedying situations found to be non- compliant.
Newly hired employees were trained directly on safety and environmental issues.
Mandatory refreshment courses were held for newly hired employees.
Training sessions were held on the Emergency Plan (October 2017).
PARTICIPATION AND CONSULTATION (SAFETY)- including ELEMENTS EMERGING FROM MEETINGS WITH THE PERSONS RESPONSIBLE FOR OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY (RLS)
In 2017, 2 meetings were held by the Accident Prevention and Protection Service, in accordance with art. 35, Legislative Decree no. 81/08, in addition to 2 extraordinary consultation meetings with the persons responsible for occupational safety (RLS) on 30Th January and 28 August.
Requests were also made by the RLS staff on 16Th June, 30Th June and 7Th December, which were followed by the interventions recorded in the risk-assessment document (DVR).
On the regulation side of things, Metal Work took note of the latest legal requirements and adapted its operations and procedures accordingly.
No requests or special requirements were received from the local community and customers in relation to environmental and safety issues.
ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE DATA AND INDICATORS
Number of offences=0;
Number of accidents=0;
Number of limits exceeded on total analyses carried out: none;
Number of complaints/reports from stakeholders= 0.
SIGNIFICANCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES
The environmental issues that were initially updated and upgraded in 2003 are considered still valid. The emission of volatile organic substances (VOS) dropped drastically as the result of the elimination of perchloroethylene in 2003, following a change in technology.
An initial environmental analysis of the production site located in Via Borsellino was conducted at the start of 2016.
In 2017 the production processes underwent no changes that would have involved any additions/alterations to environmental issues and their significance.
ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY ADEQUACY
Given the process of adaptation of the environmental management system to ISO 14001 revision 2015, a new Environmental Policy was issued in October 2017.
This updated policy sets out the same Top Management commitment stated in the previous edition, with the addition of some aspects associated with the new standard.
VALIDITY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THE DOCUMENTATION
Most of the environmental management system documentation was reconsidered in 2017 to adapt it to ISO 14001:2015.
Some documents were added, such as the “Analysis of the context, the stakeholders and their expectations”, the “Evaluation of MW product lifecycle”, the “Analysis of risks relating to environment management processes“.
The field of application is always the same and it is still considered valid, with the addition in 2016 of the production site located at Via Borsellino.
