OHSAS 18001 sets out the minimum requirements for occupational health and safety management best practices. It paves the way for the best possible working conditions in the organization and provides guidelines on how to identify hazards and put the correct controls in place to manage them. This helps to reduce workplace accidents, cutting out related costs and downtime, as well as prioritizing the welfare of the staff.
The aim of the Heatmasters health and safety policy is to ensure the health, safety, and wellbeing of our staff, visitors, and the communities in which we operate. Applicable laws and regulations are to be regarded as the minimum requirements and our target will always be 0 workplace incidents each year.
Better, safer working conditions lead to better performance. And the health and safety management system not only motivates staff, but it also engages customers and suppliers looking for businesses that take occupational health and safety management seriously.
Marcin Skurczyński, Managing Director of Heatmasters Poland, says: “Achieving a structured health and safety management system is demonstrating Heatmasters’ commitment to the welfare of our staff and external parties. Safety above everything else.”
Well done, Poland! During the year 2016, other Heatmasters units’ health and safety systems will be certified according to OHSAS 18001 standard.
