OHSAS 18001 certification for the Hendaye plant

12/12/2011

Mission accomplished for the Hendaye production plant! In September it was the first in the Group to obtain certification for its Occupational Health and Safety Management System in compliance with the OHSAS 18001 standard.

The 18001 is an international regulation that aims to continually improve standards of accident prevention, through achievement of annual goals. The prestige of this certification is evident when you consider it has only been granted to fewer than a thousand Italian companies. All the staff were directly involved in drawing up and applying the procedures verified by TÜV Austria.

This success is part of a “programme of safety and protection of the environment”, already in place and strongly supported by Epta. It is therefore the natural evolution of a process that started with UNI EN ISO 14001 certification in 2010 for the plants in Hendaye (France), Bradford (UK) and Limana (Italy).
