QUALITY, ENVIRONMENT AND OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AT THE CENTRE OF COSTAN'S NEW INTEGRATED CERTIFICATION

09/03/2015

Costan's Limana manufacturing site, in the Province of Belluno, Italy, has received ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 Integrated certification from the independent agency TÜV Austria Cert GmbH. This demonstrates the company's dilligence in tenaciously pursuing quality excellence, respect for the environment and for the community, while ensuring the highest levels of occupational health and safety.

The outstanding results of "Progetto Infortuni 0" – Zero Accidents Project – bear witness to this: 80% decrease in the rate of accidents per hour worked in 5 years (13 accidents vs. 80 per 1,000,000 hours) and a remarkable reduction in injury severity. Regarding environmental matters, the use of new green technology and more careful management of scrap material has made it possible to reclaim 90% of the waste produced in the factory. Finally, the Limana site has also achieved major performance improvements in resource conservation: energy and water consumption per cabinet produced have dropped by 30 %.

Massimo Sommacal, Director at Costan's Limana plant expresses satisfaction: “We are proud to announce that we have achieved Integrated Certification for our Quality, Environmental and Occupational Safety Management Systems. This shows our strong commitment to protect the land and our steady consideration for the well-being of our people. We are thankful to all our co-workers, whose contribution and active involvement in all stages of the manufacturing process is crucial for achieving continued improvement and innovation.”
