Commitment to an annual independent review of occupational safety by external auditors
Oranienburg, Germany, 26 July 2023 – The international ORAFOL Group, a leading manufacturer of self-adhesive special films and high-performance films, is expanding its own Integrated Management System in accordance with international standards in occupational health and safety.
On 20 July, ORAFOL Europe GmbH received confirmation that the company has implemented a management system for safety and health at work in accordance with the ISO 45001:2018 standard.
The initial audit systematically analysed health and safety risks and reviewed existing occupational health and safety policies. The successful certification confirms that ORAFOL has traditionally maintained sustainable and very effective programmes in the areas of occupational safety, occupational healthcare, health management, ergonomics and hazardous materials management. The future annual reviews by an external auditor for occupational safety are intended to ensure that the high safety standards for the workforce that ORAFOL has established at its headquarters in Oranienburg are continuously developed according to international standards.
“Healthy and safe working is a key pillar for corporate protection and for ensuring the uninterrupted operation of our headquarters in Oranienburg. Our ISO 45001:2018 certification shows that our health and safety measures effectively protect all employees at ORAFOL.” Catherine Loclair, Senior Vice President Corporate & Legal Affairs
At ORAFOL, the ISO 45001 standard has been efficiently integrated into the existing management systems ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 that have been in place for some time.
