Health | Safety | Quality | Environment
Based on common stringent internal criteria, our HSE system aims at harmonizing, supervising and meeting up with the most demanding safety standards within all our plants. To prevent security-related incidents and come up with active and reactive actions, Sediver is constantly checking its installations, production equipment, staff protective equipment, working methods and conditions while employees are regularly trained.
Minimizing our environmental impact
All Sediver plants are ISO 14.001 certified, and our operations are conducted in an environmentally friendly manner, including the qualification of suppliers, the choice of materials, sourcing, transportation… We reduce the use of hazardous materials to the minimum possible, and when used, they are strictly used according to the regulation requirements.
Minimizing the pollution emission
We go beyond the local regulatory requirements by setting stringent thresholds in our plants and workplace: the levels of our pollution emission and waste in our workplace is much lower than legal requirements.
Sustainable resource management
We develop new technologies and materials to reduce our consumption of energy, water, wood and paper and thus minimize the waste of natural resources. We focus on waste recycling (97% of our waste are recycled) and aim at reducing even further the volume of waste sent to landfill.
A staff safety plan is imbedded within Quality assurance and Sediver Production System (SPS) and comes in addition to our plants OSHAS 18001 and ISO 45001 certifications.
Reporting & Auditing
We daily monitor the security of the past 24 hours. A reporting tool – the safety cross – has been set up to mark each day on the 4 following aspects: safe day, near miss, first aid and lost time accident. Yearly audits handled centrally are undertaken across the group. They generate detailed reports that set the new orientations & improvement actions that will be put in place by plant and top managers in the year to come.
