LAW 123/2007: A PUSH TOWARD SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Article. 9, Law no. 123/2007 introduces the art. 25-septies in Decree. N. 231/2001, then adding the offense of "negligent homicide and serious or very serious bodily harm committed in violation of safety regulations and the protection of hygiene and health at work", under which crimes the company is directly co-responsible with the person who directly committed the crime.
For accidents at work they are criminally punished not only the legal representatives of the companies, or their delegates, but also the companies themselves, which can be applied to large fines and disqualification sanctions.
The chance for companies not to respond offense is closely linked to the adoption of models of organization and direct management to prevent the offenses punished by Legislative Decree. N. 123/2001 and the adoption of appropriate supervisory and control systems on the application of the models themselves. In fact, the adoption of a Safety Management System becomes mandatory if you want to enjoy the exemption of the penalty, being the only instrument capable of demonstrating compliance with all applicable rules regarding safety and to identify the responsibilities at each organizational level, decision-making and management within the company.
The penalties can range from a minimum of € 258,000 to a maximum of € 1,549,000, based on the company's balance sheet ratios in addition to the disqualification penalty if convicted, for no less than three months and not exceeding one year.
With disqualification sanction we means:
The answer to the Law 123/2007 is to implement a Safety Management System based on OHSAS 18001: 2007 Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series for health and safety management systems.
The adoption of a Safety at Work Management System and the establishment of its audit committee and supervision are intended to promote:
The adoption of a safety management system becomes mandatory if you want to enjoy the exemption of the above mentioned sanctions. In fact, art. 6 of Legislative Decree. N. 231/2001 is established for offenses committed by top management people, the institution, or the company is not liable if it proves that:
INSIGHTS ON MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Below a depth of:
Quality Management System (UNI EN ISO 9001)
In the current historical phase, characterized by an ever more marked internationalization, quality has become decisive for the competitiveness of enterprises and economic systems.
The quality can not concern only the bare productive time, but must involve all the previous and the next process; thereby the quality of the final product will prove to be the sum of the qualities realized in the various phases that precede, realize and following production.
The quality has now become a strategic factor for the competitiveness of companies, the economy and society.
In December of 2000 the standards of ISO 9000 series an adjustment process has been defined have been updated for companies with a deadline of December 2003.
The ISO 9002 and 9003 have been eliminated as included in ISO 9001.
The main innovations of the standard were:
The reason for this update lies in the fact that one of the ISO 9000 was a model created for manufacturing companies, difficult to adapt to service companies, where the customer is present only as a contractual party.
The benefits of certification
The company that decides to adopt a formalized quality system not only get benefits in the marketing industry, but also:
A Quality System therefore allows to obtain the following benefits to the company certified:
Benefits in marketing and customer relations
Benefits to suppliers
The costs of not quality
The production of low-quality goods can cause the following problems:
The problems listed above lead to the increase in additional costs defined "non-quality" of costs.
The introduction of a company Quality System constitutes an investment that can allow the reduction of the "non Quality costs".
Environmental Management System (UNI EN ISO 14001)
Certify not only product quality but also the environmental management: a target now at hand for all Italian companies. With the introduction of ISO 14000 standards each company has clear references to deal with in the correct way the impact of its activities on the surrounding world and to obtain international recognition of the quality of production at the level of efficiency and environmental compatibility. mtm consulting s.r.l. It can be partners of every company that wants to move in this direction, to deal with issues such as self-assessment, accreditation and certification.
The advantages of the application of an Environmental Management System ISO 14001
The benefits that a company can achieve with the application of an Environmental Management System that conforms to ISO 14001 may be manifold:
An analysis of production processes and the related development or adjustment you can get to get even economic returns. In addition, the development of an Environmental Management System, allowing a prompt and careful adaptation to environmental legislation, will reduce the occurrence of situations of non-compliance with legislative and willing to improve relations with the public offices responsible for monitoring the application of environmental legislation.
The steps for the certification
The main steps, and related substeps main identifiable are the following:
The EMAS Regulation
The EMAS is a voluntary standard applicable at European level, to all organizations.
In the definition of the elements of the EMS EMAS Regulation refers to the UNI EN ISO 14001, therefore, it is an integral part. And it highlights the existence of synergy between the two schemes. Synergies that can be exploited in the transition from one system to UNI EN ISO 14001 to EMAS. The transition to the EMAS scheme is necessary if organizations want to demonstrate and communicate their excellence in terms of environmental performace.
Also for the EMAS Regulation, as per UNI EN ISO 14001, we need to respect environmental legislation. What adds EMAS is:
The organization intends to join the EMAS Regulation is required to perform the following tasks:
The benefits of EMAS
From the application of EMAS a business can reap benefits, some of which can also be reached through the implementation of a system according to UNI EN ISO 14001. The main advantages that can be drawn are:
What adds to the EMAS II Regulation No. 761/2001 compared to the previous Regulation (EC) No. 1836/93
The main differences can be summarized as follows:
In fact, the EMAS Regulation is and must be seen by the companies, and not only those industrial, but also of services, as a tool for creating value and as one of the methods whose application allows to achieve a Sustainable Development.
What adds the EMAS III Regulation no. 1221/2009 compared to the previous Regulation no. 761/2001
Regulation (EC) 1221/09 introduces the key indicators covering:
The Environmental Statement, for each key indicator, should be shown the absolute value and the value compared to a parameter that, depending on the activity, the size, and the environmental impacts of the organization can be:
If an organization feels that one or more core indicators are not relevant to its significant direct environmental aspects, it can not bring it back, but must state the reasons which led to this exclusion.
The Safety Management System (OHSAS 18001)
mtm consulting s.r.l. has developed specific expertise in the field of security in particular in carrying out the risk assessment in respect of which has designed its own risk assessment model called twinster and in the field of realization of the security in accordance with the requirements of the standard OHSAS 18001 Management Systems.
BSI OHSAS 18001
In 1999 a working group of standards bodies and certification bodies of various countries, under the auspices of the British Standards Institution, has developed a reference standard for the certification of safety management systems and health of workers; this rule has been identified as:
OHSAS 18001: Occupational health and safety management systems - Specification
Simultaneously has also issued OHSAS 18002 - Guidelines for the implementation of OHSAS 18001, in order to facilitate the interpretation and application.
The standard in question is the son of BS 8800: 1996 and other certification schemes previously used by the bodies which took part in its drafting, but what is immediately apparent is the great similarity, almost a mirror image, with the UNI EN ISO 14001 - environmental management Systems - Requirements with guidance for use.
Also infati the 18001, like the 14001, using a philosophy of applying the improvement cycle based on the PDCA scheme proposed by Deming to quality improvement.
The steps are, hereinafter, described represent the logical process that must be followed to achieve the goal of certification of a Gestioneper Safety System according to OHSAS 18001: 1999. This process is built considering the ties between the Legislative Decree 81/2008, read according to the approach required by the UNI EN ISO 14001. All the listed steps may be broken down into steps, and these, in turn, could be broken down into further sub-levels , but this would make it difficult to read and it would lose the purpose it is proposed that this document.
1. Initial Analysis: top management should provide the starting situation of the organization. It is a fundamental point which must provide the information necessary to assess the existing system and can, therefore, define a starting point, from which, measuring progress.2. Definition of POLICY: Upper management should develop, document, approve, revise, spread a Security policy.3. Schedule.
4. Implementation and operation
5. Checking and Corrective Actions
6. Management Review: Top Management must ensure and periodically reviewing the system in order to maintain continuous improvement and to monitor the efficiency and effectiveness of the system.
The steps described above are both logical and temporal sequence. Therefore each single stage receives data and information from the previous input and provides output data, which represent the input to the next. The sub-phases, which constitute each phase, represent, in a certain way the process that, once received inputs, processes them to generate the outputs. Like any process, this should also be controlled and the control activities must be completed by a feedback loop (feedback) that ensures the smooth functioning of the process. For phases 2 and 3, the control is carried out through audits, steps 4 and 5, the control is through real control activities while the phase 6 the control is based on the respect of internal company factors.
Energy Management Systems (ISO 50001)
The standard, established by the coordination of different national standards on the issue of energy management, has been enacted in England by the British Standards Institution (BSI) in July 2009 and has been implemented in Italy as UNI CEI EN 16001. The System management of energy (SGE), proposed by the UNI CEI EN 16001: 2009 enables organizations to develop and implement policies that take into account the problems relating to energy consumption. The standard calls for the development of an energy policy that includes, through the comparison and analysis of consumption, useful information to put into practice energy efficiency monitoring plans.
EN 16001 is a European standard that is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act methodology.
The management system according to the Plan-Do-Check-Act format ensures that the standard can be used by all organizations of any size and type. The standard is applicable to any organization that wishes to declare conformity of its energy policy with other means of self-evaluation or by third-party certification of its energy management system. The requirements of the standard can be aligned with those of other standards widely used for other management systems such as ISO 9001 and UNI EN ISO 14001 as the systemic approach is uniform and consistent. Especially born and development as "rib" of the UNI EN ISO 14001 as the consumption of resources was already planned as a form of indicator to watch out for the evaluation of environmental performance. Naturally goes into the category of systemic rules related to EMAS III Regulation (Regulation (EC) no. 1221/2009) that contains explicit and mandatory mention energy savings.
Why implement a Quality Management System for Energy
The reasons why implementing a Quality Management System for Energy can be riasunte in the following points:
The benefits from certification you can achieve
QHSE Integrated System
More and more companies realize that the buyer is not the only party, but you should compare with the whole external world of suppliers, laws, buyers, markets, institutions, environment, workers, ...
Here is that the company faces, and take account of all the operational constraints. Not just those related to customer satisfaction, but also to those relating to the environment and therefore to the community satisfaction. And even those relating to the respect of health and safety in the workplace and then to employee satisfaction.
UNI EN ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 are concerned with the management of these business issues.
In particular, the UNI EN ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 take the moves in the actual laws on the environment and safety to develop the management issues. Implemented correctly give great benefits to the company.
It is useful that there is an integrated enterprise project to simultaneously achieve the improvement of business performance, the improvement of the environmental impacts of its activities and the improvement of the health and risk management in the workplace.
The three systems mentioned above have structural similarities that enable the integration. The OHSAS 18001 and UNI EN ISO 14001 are even stackable and have the same structure.
The integration it can be obtained at several levels:
The procedures of the three systems may be common on many aspects and integration can become even stronger implementing them through an information system thus facilitating the use of documentation and information.
For the success of management systems it remains paramount and the foundation of all the organization's approach. The company can adapt to the legislation in a formal and bureaucratic way, with the sole purpose of obtaining certification. Or seize these opportunities made available by the rules, as a strategic choice that allows performance improvement and strengthening of its positions on the market.
THE NEW ISO 9001:2015
It is been published on September 22nd, 2015 - with the publication date September 15th, 2015 - The new edition of ISO 9001 "Quality Management Systems" - which replaces ISO 9001: 2008.
For entry into force, IAF - International Accreditation Forum - has set a transitional period of three years after publication, as decided by the General Assembly during the Seoul meetings of October 2013 (IAF Resolution 2013-15).
New certifications and renewals
Up to 3 years after the publication of the new 2015 edition of ISO 9001, the new certificates will be valid and renewals issued against both editions of ISO 9001, both 2008 and 2015.
The expiration date of the ISO 9001: 2008 issued during the transitional period of three years will, however, correspond to the end of that period.
Revocation of certifications
At 3 years from the publication of the new 2015 edition of ISO 9001 - will cease to apply - and will be simultaneously revoked - the certificates issued to ISO 9001: 2008.
The main changes from the previous version can be summarized in the following streams points:
THE NEW ISO 14001:2015
September 15, ISO - International Organization for Standardization - has published the new 2015 edition of the standard ISO 14001 "Environmental management systems - Requirements with guidance for use" which replaces ISO 14001: 2004.
For entry into force, IAF - International Accreditation Forum - has set a transitional period of three years after publication, as decided by the General Assembly during the Vancouver meetings of October 2014 (IAF Resolution 2014 -11).
As of the date of publication of the new ISO 14001 standard, we are no longer accepted new accreditation applications that refer to the previous edition of ISO 14001: 2004.
As of the date of publication of the new ISO 14001 standard, continue to be accepted extension applications that refer to the previous edition of ISO 14001: 2004.
The text of the standard follows the new index of HLS, divided into 10 chapters and common to all future system requirements. substantially new chapters have been introduced, such as the 4 on the "context" and 5 on "Leadership". Others have been "restored", as chapter 9 performance evaluation that includes requirements on monitoring, audit and management review, 10 on the "Improvement" in which disappears the instrument of "preventive action" and 7 on the supporting processes.
In contrast, other chapters resume at the level of the previous HLS structure of ISO 14001: 2004, by imposing it for all management systems, as is the case in Chapter 6 devoted to planning.
The introduction and, above all, the point 4.4 on the "Management System" clearly explains how, among the results or outcomes of the Management System to be included the growth of the environmental performance of the organization itself, abandoning the partial ambiguity of the previous revision of the rule which made reference to the performance of the company management.
Considerations on the definitions
In the new standard are inserted new definitions and changes to existing definitions. In other cases, the definitions are confirmed. It is worth dwelling on some significant points.
And 'deeply it modified the definition of "interested party" which, in the new sense, can affect, be affected or thinking to be influenced by decisions or activities of the organization (and not only by the environmental performance).
They are substantially unchanged and the environment definitions, environmental and environmental impact aspect; Note that the Italian use of the word "environment" in the definition of "environment" has nothing to do with the "context of the organization", being the translation of English surroundings, having to be referred to an eminently physical sense and geographical.
The definition of "objective" has incorporated that of "milestone" and was divided into "targets" and "environmental objectives."
The "risk" is defined first in a neutral manner, as an effect, positive or negative, of an uncertainty. Subsequently, it is characterized as a "threat" as opposed to "opportunities." E 'in each case a new key element to be used for the setting of an effective EMS.
And 'it introduced the new definition of "sight" cycle that refers to ISO 14044: 2006, which supports the new requirements for the "life-cycle perspective."
It confirms the definition of "corrective action", but disappears that of "preventive action", replaced all the general effects of the rule approach, basing SGA on the analysis of risks and opportunities, see the system as a whole great all-encompassing preventive action.
The "continuous improvement", a fundamental requirement of the rule, is characterized as improving both the management system and environmental performance, and should be consistent with the organization's environmental policy.
The "organizational framework"
It is an absolute, fundamental novelty, introduced in chapter 4 of the HLS for all Management Systems.
The organization is called upon to analyze the "factors" - in English issues - that affect its ability to obtain these settings. The factors certainly include environmental conditions and changes in them, but they must also be considered the technological, financial, political, social, etc. For example, the Federal Reserve on the cost of the money or the EU political decision, Chinese and / or US on curbing greenhouse gas emissions, are "factors" to be considered differently depending on the activity, the size field , the reference markets, etc.. of an organization. It is part of the characterization of the context also the identification of the "stakeholders" and their expectations.
E 'should be noted that in the introduction is repeated the traditional graphic scheme Model Plan Do Check Act, but it is placed inside a larger pattern in which it highlighted the influence of the "context of the organization", represented by "internal and external factors" and "the stakeholder needs and expectations," of which we are called to take into account in the development of the Management System (§4.4).
Emphasis on "leadership"
Having rightly given up searching difficult translations in Italian very effective English terms and established use, chapter 5 "Leadership" has been inserted with its original title in the Italian version. The leading role of the High Directorate of the organization (in English top management) is strongly affirmed, and is divided into a number of points which, while recalling concepts already shared in the past, rely directly to active management roles. It should be emphasized in this regard that disappears the figure of / i "representative / s" Management.
New interesting proposal in this regard is constituted by the obligation for senior management to support managerial roles involved in various ways in the operation of the EMS in asserting themselves, their "leadership" (§5.1, point i). This requirement touches a deficiency that occurs very often, particularly when "environmental managers" are not perceived as sufficiently authoritative in rapp0orti with other business functions, typically, but not exclusively, the production, maintenance, purchasing, design, if not even the same direction.
Risks and opportunities
Also in this case it is an important novelty and common to all Management Systems.
The organization will have to determine the threats and opportunities (§6.1.1) that must be addressed and controlled (in English addressed) to obtain the expected results, without side effects and achieving continuous improvement. It is not required the application of ISO 31000, but can be useful to refer to the principles and criteria which it proposed. A typical opportunity may be the development of "green" products. A common threat to many organizations may be the difficulty of supporting technological progress required by the evolution of Community legislation (eg. Directive "Eco Design"). Often, threats and opportunities are two sides of the same coin. The structure of the text seems to indicate that the determination of the risks is the consequence of the context and the expectations of stakeholders.
The organization may consider such factors, risks and opportunities in the assessment of the significance of its environmental aspects, so as to ensure that its EMS is properly established, implemented and maintained. Risks and opportunities should instead be considered in the choice of environmental objectives.
The prospect of "life cycle"
The organization should identify and assess the environmental aspects of its products / services considering a "perspective of life cycle", ie considering the possible environmental impacts of products and / or services from the phases of the sourcing of raw materials through to disposal / ultimate recovery. Yet does not require the execution of a "life cycle analysis" in conformity with the ISO reference standards 14040 and following, the new ISO 14001 requires a specific analysis of these aspects and their translation into one oriented design consistent with the policies and business objectives, in operational requirements relating to the supply of goods and services and the identification of any information to be provided to customers on the use and disposal of products and services (§8.1).
The organization is called to define a communication process, both for the inside and towards the outside. In relation to external communication, it emphasizes a new requirement that provides for an obligation to ensure that the information that come out are reliable and correct. This requirement touches a sensitive issue related to marketing and advertising operations that sometimes have conveyed previously incomplete or misleading messages.
THE NEW ISO 45001:2018
Every year in the world two million people die from an accident at work or an occupational disease, including 12.000 children.
In 250 million injuries 335.000 are fatal.
Source: International Labor Organization
Why the new ISO 45001?
In the event of an accident at work, the employer must prove that he has done everything possible to protect the worker.
This is the reason for the new ISO 45001 which will replace the current health and safety at work regulation OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series).
The standard will help organizations to ensure a safer and healthier work environment, with the goal of reducing the risk of injury to their workers.
What will be the objectives of this new standard?
