|Safety Management Systems in accordance with OHSAS 18001 standard began to be progressively introduced to the group's operational units starting from 2001. |
The Safety Management System, in line with the OHSAS 18001 standard, was implemented as part of a more extensive scheme (called Safety Focus), which, starting from an initial definition of the methods employed for meeting both the requirements set down in the aforementioned standard and the operational requirements of the Pirelli Group, sets down various tools and methods for safety and communications-related training in the Operating Units.
This program was coordinated by committees set up for the specific purpose of reducing the number and severity of injuries, as initially launched for those Operating Units where the trends indicated the most critical situations.
