Its implementation allows us to identify the potential employee hazards, and to implement preventive measures, which translates into the improvement of occupational health and safety.

How was the implementation of ISO 45001:2018 carried out, based on ISO 45001:2018?

We have developed a plan which involved the employees of all the divisions of the company. In result of our activities, we have decided on a mechanism for consultation with employees – we have carried out the selection of the representative of the employees and introduced the procedure of consultations and reports. All the processes were covered by an internal audit of the compliance with the requirements of the new norm. We have also organised a series of internal trainings.
