"The Pirelli Group recognizes the crucial importance of human resources, in the belief that the key to success in any business is the professional input of the people that work for it in a climate of fairness and mutual trust. The Pirelli Group safeguards health, safety and industrial hygiene in the workplace, both through management systems that are continually improving and developing and by promoting an approach to health and safety based on prevention and the effective handling of occupational risk. The Pirelli Group consider respect for workers' rights as fundamental to the business. Working relationships are managed placing particular emphasis on equal opportunity, on furthering each person's career development, and on turning their diversity to account by creating a multi-cultural working environment."
(Ethical Code
– "Human Resources").

The above-mentioned principles are reiterated in the "Social Responsibility Group Policy for Occupational Health, Safety and Rights, and the Environment". The commitments taken by Pirelli through this Policy reflect not only the contents of the regulations above but also the SA8000® prescriptions , which for years has been the benchmark for Group social responsibility, and the United Nations Global Compact, of which Pirelli has been a member since 2004.

The Pirelli Group pursues and supports compliance with internationally proclaimed human rights. Pirelli considers protection of the integrity, health and welfare of its employees and the environment as one of the primary needs to be satisfied in organizing and developing its activities.

The Pirelli Group is committed to:

the dissemination of occupational health, safety and labour rights and environmental information to its internal and external stakeholders, both by communicating with them and actively co-operating with national and international government and academic bodies;

"The Pirelli Group considers protection of employee safety, health and well - to be basic and general elements in defining its own strategies and objectives, in view of obtaining ever-more competitiveness on the global market on a long-lasting and sustainable basis."

Pirelli adopts a Safety Management System structured and certified according to the OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 14001:2004 Standards.

All certificates are issued with international accreditation ANAB (ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Boardaccrediting body of the United States).
Since 2014, RINA Services S.p.A. has been the new compliance auditor of Pirelli Tyre’s Safety and Environment Management Systems. The choice of a new service provider meets the need for greater transparency of the certification process, which requires periodic replacement both of the entity for conformity evaluation of Management Systems and the accrediting body.

As at the end of 2014 all production facilities of Pirelli Tyre have been certified according to OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 14001:2004 standards with the exception of the facility in Rome (United States), where a management system is operative, applied under the local regulations, which is similar to the OHSAS 18001 Standard. For this reason the certification activity is a parallel activity of relative value. Instead, the Environmental Management System is fully operative and certified pursuant to ISO 14001.

As for the Russian settlement of Kirov, which is already certified ISO 14001, in January 2015 the audit process was successfully completed for certification of the safety management system according to OHSAS 18001 Standard.

The Safety Management System and the Environmental Management System implemented at the Pirelli Tyre production sites have been developed on the basis of procedures and guidelines drafted at corporate headquarters. This has made it possible to adopt a “common language” within the Group, in terms of the key elements of operating that guarantee effective, uniform and shared management.
