Integration of the environmental management system and the OHS management system
In July 2017, work started towards integration of the environmental management system and the occupational health and safety management system. For this purpose, one authorised officer was appointed to supervise the operation of the systems and an integrated policy was adopted. At subsequent stages, a procedure was implemented, governing both systems, internal auditors were appointed, and training and workshops were conducted for a wide group of employees. As part of implemented changes, the environmental management system was adjusted to the requirements of the international standard ISO 14001:2015-09 “Environmental management systems. Requirements with guidance for use”. In the area of occupational health and safety, the system remained in compliance with the Polish standard PN-N 18001:2004 “Occupational health and safety management systems”.
Effective implementation of the integrated system was confirmed by a relevant certificate which was issued to PSE for the period from 24 July 2018 to 11 March 2021.
By maintaining the integrated management system, the company voluntarily declares that it will reconcile the reliable and efficient operation of the power system with its development whilst respecting the natural environment and public interest. It is PSE’s particular concern to ensure the security of employees, visitors, and contractors’ personnel.
