Production

Production

Risks that may arise from production are identified and evaluated by our experts at locations around the world. In addition, we use our Major Hazards Review Programme (MHRP) to conduct a systematic assessment of process risks which might result in accidents or damage to property or to the environment. This programme is constantly being refined to ensure that we are in a position to react to new potential risks. By the end of 2016, we had audited more than 95 percent of the relevant plants in accordance with the MHRP process. During the year 2016, we also continued to introduce a global standard for quantitative risk analyses on sites with an increased safety risk.

We pay attention to production safety from the initial planning stage of our new plants. An individual safety plan is devised for each new plant. This plan is based on our own standards, the rules which apply in the relevant country and our customers’ guidelines. Environmental protection is also taken into consideration.

In 2016, around 1,300 environment, safety and health protection audits were carried out on our sites by us or by third parties. Our internal audits are conducted in accordance with the provisions of the international certification processes for quality and occupational health and safety, ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001. Several of our sites also have external certifications. In 2016, additional sites in Ukraine, Argentina, Poland and Finland were externally certified for the first time according to OHSAS 18001, the standard for occupational health and safety management systems. Our plants supplying CO2 to the food industry for the production of carbonated drinks are also certified under the food safety system certification FSSC 22000.
