Senior management created the Quality, Health and Safety and Environment (QHSE) System to ensure that relevant activities are planned, developed and improved consistently in compliance with corporate policies and to the full satisfaction of all stakeholders.
The performance of the Quality, Health, Safety and Environment System was assessed and monitored through internal checks and by analysing work site reports, and it was found to have been applied satisfactorily.
Locally, the certification of Salini S.p.A. has been extended to the management systems of the Dubai and Abu Dhabi branches with regard to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001, and to the Singapore branch for ISO 9001:2008 only.
The ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications of the subsidiary Salini Australia Pty Ltd were also confirmed.
In order to improve support to production facilities, the QAS management was reorganised by appointing a “regional QHSE Coordinator”, with expertise in quality, safety and environment issues, who will be directly involved in the contracts in the relevant geographical area, providing the support needed for the proper start-up of activities and a timely transfer of the know-how gained. The QHSE Coordinator function went into operation in the first half of 2013.
The training was also provided to the relevant resources and specifically to expatriate staff with regard to workplace health and safety pursuant to Legislative Decree 81/08.
