Health, safety and environmental consciousness
We are the first flange manufacturer in the world to hold three certifications from Lloyds Register Quality Assurance:
- ISO 9001
- ISO 14001
- OHSAS 18001
- Health, safety and environmental protection have always been a priority for us. We have developed, implemented and certified an environmental and health & safety management system at all our workplaces operating in accordance with ISO 9001 (since 1992), OHSAS 18001 (since 2010) and ISO 14001 (since 2002). We are certified by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance, and we undergo annual audits in order to maintain and expand the integrity of this management system.
- All health, safety and environmental issues are addressed systematically, effectively and proactively in accordance with ISO standards and OHSAS guidelines by designing specific objectives to resolve them. In this respect, we work on the basis of risk and environmental issue management by identifying, quantifying and executing specific instructions and work plans.
- At ULMA, we are aware that the health and safety of the people on our team is essential to our success. Therefore, we provide training to all employees in addition to taking appropriate measures to prevent accidents and other work-related problems. One of ULMA’s main values is to maintain and improve health & safety measures in all our work spaces.
We are convinced that environmental sustainability is the basis of our planet’s future, and we try to keep this in mind so that all our management is oriented towards the protection of our environment.
The main tools we use to minimize the environmental impact of our activities are to work on our continuous improvement and to take preventive measures. To this end, we optimize our production system and thus make increasingly efficient use of energy and raw materials while reducing the amount of waste, pollution and other elements that are harmful to the environment.
