HSE Integrated Management System
GreenStream B.V. has ratified its commitment to the protection of the Environment and the Health of its personnel and of all people that could be affected by Company’s activities with an HSE Policy, and has consequently established an HSE Integrated Management System (HSE IMS) , also in order to achieve ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certification of his HSE IMS.
The purpose of the HSE Integrated Management System (HSE IMS) of GreenStream BV is to assess, minimise and control all possible environmental impacts and risks for occupational health and safety in accordance with the applicable laws currently in force and the requirements of the reference regulations, with the aim of HSE performance continuous improvement.
The HSE IMS covers all activities, including materials and services procurement, production, maintenance, routine and non-routine activities, personnel training.
The System is based on:
- dentification of the significant environmental aspects resulting from an initial environmental analysis of all sites;
- identification of ongoing hazards and assessment of related risks, in order to define the necessary control measures.
These analyses are carried out and reviewed each time a new procedure, process, plant, work equipment or dangerous raw material is introduced (management of change).
Main objective of the System is to manage in a controlled manner all the significant environmental aspects and the identified and assessed risks. In order to achieve this objective, targets and relevant programmes are established in line with the policy of the organisation.
Special documentation is prepared to describe the operating methods to be used to correctly manage all activities and, thus, to keep under control all occupational health and safety risks and possible significant environmental impacts in normal, exceptional and emergency conditions.
The personnel concerned are informed about the HSE Integrated Management System and the related policies granting for the availability of the reference documentation and performing appropriate training.
The effectiveness of the System and its continuous improvement are measured by monitoring of data related to training, operational controls, surveillance and measuring activities and the results of internal and external audits.
On the basis of the data recorded, the organisation will proceed to review the System at set intervals to ensure that it is appropriate and effective and produces results in terms of continuous improvement.
The Company Health, Safety and Environmental Policy is set in the document GS-HSE-POL-00 “HSE Policy”, establishing the basic principles and objectives of the HSE Integrated Management System. HSE policy has been set by the Company top management, in accordance with the requirements stated in the reference regulations and the general directives of the targets.
In addition to prescribing compliance with the requirements laid down in the environmental and safety regulations currently in force, the policy reflects the organisation’s commitment to continuously improve its performance. HSE policy is appropriate for the nature and size of the Company’s environmental aspects and risks and is periodically reviewed to take into account any changes to the site and the organisation that have occurred. HSE policy has been suitably documented. The policy is implemented, maintained, communicated to all people working under his control in order to make them aware of their individual responsibilities and made available to all interested parties and the public.
Specific aspects of the Company HSE policy are strengthened in the documents.
