Occupational Health and safety management systems
Health, Safety and Environmental Management System
In terms of arrangement of labour protection work the management of our company is guided by recognition and assurance of employees’ life and health priority in course of production operations. Thus, the occupational safety is considered while making decisions on all production issues and at all production levels.
Functioning the health, safety and environmental management system (HSE-MS) is a strategic decision made by the management. HSE-MS encourages safe and healthy labour conditions and assures a basic approach allowing our company to sequentially identify and control risks for health and safety, reduce an accident probability, comply with legislative regulations as well as enhance an overall effectiveness.
In 2008 the health, safety and environmental management system in compliance with requirements of the international standard OHSAS 18001:2007 was established, implemented and is currently maintained in proper working order at BELSHINA JSC.
The standard OHSAS 18001 is internationally recognised, its requirements fully meet the requirements of ISO standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. The working committee on OHSAS standard development is represented by national certification authorities, regulatory authorities, practitioners in the field of occupational safety and health operating worldwide including USA, South America, Europe, Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia and China.
