Certifications and Management Standards

In both its business and corporate activities, Pirelli integrates Social Responsibility in its management of any issues with social and ethical impact.

In its application of the first principle of the Social Responsibility Policy for Occupational Health, Safety and Rights, and Environment, Pirelli is very active in the field of Management Systems that it uses to improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of its processes and further reduce their impact on employee health, work safety conditions and the external environment.


A Safety Management System organised and certified to meet OHSAS 18001:2007 standards has long been in operation at Pirelli Tyre S.p.A. (which also comprises steel cord production plants).

All certificates have been issued with the SAS international accreditation (SAS is the Swiss Accreditation Service, which assesses and accredits compliance assessment bodies – laboratories, inspection and certification bodies – in accordance with international rules).

The Safety Management System implemented at the Pirelli Tyre production units has been developed on the basis of common procedures and guidelines drafted at corporate headquarters. This has enabled the use of a common language within the Group, in terms of the key elements of occupational safety management and a uniform shared mode of operations.
