ccupational health and safety policy

Health and safety in the workplace are fundamental requirements for our manufacturing activities.

With a view to continuous improvement and evolution, Forgia del Frignano aims to improve worker health and safety as an integral part of its business by implementing an Organisational and Management Model (OMM) for Occupational Health and Safety, adapted to the company’s specific organisational and production structure.

The OMM integrates and adapts the organisational structure of the Quality Management System.

To this end, Forgia del Frignano undertakes to:

  • promote business growth without compromising worker health and safety;
  • define and plan safety objectives through formalised and controlled goals with defined frequency through the planning of appropriate internal audits;
  • select and use equipment, resources and raw materials in a rational manner, taking into account any potential risk to health and safety;
  • reduce residual risks to the health and safety of personnel through the development and implementation of appropriate training programmes, the adoption of work instructions and emergency management procedures ;
  • regularly verify, through internal audits, results achieved in relation to worker health and safety;
  • minimise occupational injury and illness by acting directly on potential sources of risk (equipment, chemical agents, behaviour, etc.) and ensuring timely and regular information updates to workers;
  • disclose information relating to accidents, injuries and near misses;
  • promote a culture of safety within the company through the involvement of all staff;
  • improve the efficiency and effectiveness of business processes, raising its position on the market.

The achievement of these objectives is implemented through compliance with mandatory regulatory requirements and voluntary standards to which the company subscribes.

This policy is the framework reference for periodic reviews used to evaluate objectives achieved and to identify new objectives, in line with the company’s approach to continuous improvement.

Forgia del Frignano promotes the dissemination of the integrated policy among its staff, suppliers and customers. This policy is communicated to all persons working for or on behalf of the company.

Individual managers shall endeavour to implement and disclose this policy.
