ISO 45001

Occupational Health and Safety certification

There cannot be any business without the greatest attention to the health and safety of workers and all interested parties. ISO 45001 is an internationally recognised tool for combating occupational accidents and diseases.

Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), with contributions from experts from over 70 countries, UNI ISO 45001:2018 is the first international standard to define the minimum standards of good practice to safeguard and protect workers around the world. The standard applies the well-known Deming cycle with the goal of ensuring increasingly safe and healthy working conditions. Through a detailed analysis and by involving all interested parties, ISO 45001 represents a valid tool, including for the effective implementation of Italian Legislative Decree no. 81/08.

Euro Stampaggi has always considered people to be the pivot around which the entire corporate organisation revolves and this is why, in addition to fulfilling its legal requirements, the company immediately felt the need to formalize, standardize and disseminate all procedures and operating instructions inherent to the safety of company tasks that it had acquired gradually. By then investigating every incident, accident and Near Miss, these procedures were proliferated and became increasingly effective.

This virtuous behaviour led these procedures to comply “naturally” with the ISO 45001 standard, and, so, in November 2020, with just a little “documentary” effort, the company was able to obtain certification of its Integrated System in accordance with this standard.

Furthermore, in 2012, the first AED Station (automated external defibrillator) was installed in Euro Stampaggi. This was followed by volunteer employees being trained by the emergency services. The initiative was aimed at increasing the company’s ability to deal with any serious health issues promptly within the production areas. The automated external defibrillator is, in fact, a medical device that can safely defibrillate the muscular walls of the heart, since it is equipped with sensors that can recognise a cardiac arrest due to arrhythmia, ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.
