After successful certification audits, ŽOS Trnava became the holder of the ISO 45001 certificate – Occupational Health and Safety Management System and the ISO 50001 certificate – Energy Management Systems. Both certificates represent a significant contribution to the integrated management system as well as to the daily life of the company.
The audit was performed by the accredited certification body 3EC International with international experience. “The purpose of the audit was to verify compliance with the requirements of international standards and relevant legal requirements. The audit team stated compliance with the audited requirements, as well as the fact about the effective functioning of the integrated system of quality management, environment, occupational health and safety management, as well as energy management,” says Mária Wendt, Commissioner for Quality at ŽOS Trnava.
Integrated management system
ŽOS Trnava was first certified according to the ISO 9001 standard – Quality Management System in 2000. Based on the requirements of the time and on the natural development of the company, ŽOS Trnava was also certified in 2003 according to the ISO 14001 standard – Environmental Management System.
Both management systems were connected to an integrated management system.
Health and safety
The importance of safety and health protection at work is underlined not only by national and European legislation, but also by practical experience in all, especially large production companies, including ŽOS Trnava.
“The implementation of a health and safety management system enables our company to manage risks, prevent accidents and damage to employees’ health, provide safe and healthy workplaces and improve their performance,” says Alena Ponechalová, HR Director of ŽOS Trnava.
ISO 45001 is a voluntary management tool that defines health and safety policy, meeting health and safety goals and strategies, and making changes for continuous improvement.
Energy management system
An energy audit is one of the necessary legal conditions that major energy consumers must repeat in four-year cycles.
In 2020, the company’s top management decided to audit the company through ISO 50001 certification. “The aim was to implement the system and processes necessary to continuously improve energy management, including energy efficiency, energy use and consumption, with the personal commitment of each employee of the company,” recalls Zdenko Lančarič, executive director of ŽOS Trnava.
Carbon footprint, green electricity, green energy, electromobility. These are concepts that gradually enter everyday reality. With its serious approach to the certification of ISO standards, ŽOS Trnava is approaching this reality in gradual steps.
