Health, Safety & Environment
For Virdus, the health and safety of workers working in its offices or production facilities is at the top of the company’s strategies and priorities.
We therefore personally take care of the HSE policies related to Health, Safety and Environment, qualifying our suppliers and periodically verifying compliance with the same guidelines.
to health and safety
In order to promote a culture of safety and to raise awareness of its implementation across the board in each of the company’s work activities, all staff, both clerical and operational, have undergone an intensive and specific HSE training programme; the company’s aim is to achieve and maintain the target of zero accidents, zero occupational illnesses, zero environmental accidents and zero adverse impacts on local communities.
To this end, risk assessments of all environments, offices, photovoltaic and biogas plants have been carried out in detail and scrupulously, and assessments of interfering risks have been systematically carried out with external contractors; in accordance with internal policy, everything concerning HSE aspects is promptly and thoroughly documented in writing.
Careful drafting of documentation is accompanied by careful management and technical guidance, based on standardised operating procedures and instructions, such as those relating to site access, emergency management and the performance of activities in confined spaces or explosive atmospheres.
In order to maintain excellence and the above-mentioned high-quality standards, the company invests in HSE training of various kinds, both of a general nature in relation to workplace safety legislation, i.e. Legislative Decree 81/2008, and of a specific nature such as, for example, theoretical-practical courses qualifying in terms of electrical work or the use of handling equipment; all training is held by recognised bodies and periodically updated in accordance with the law.
In addition, all operational and part of the clerical staff were trained in specific first aid and emergency management topics.
