After a very good basis was created over the last years or since the initial certifications of HAWE Hydraulik SE sites, in December 2020 HAWE Slovenija was certified according to the three ISO standards: Environmental Management (ISO 14001), Occupational Health and Safety Management (ISO 45001) and Energy Management (ISO 50001). Thus, HAWE meets the increasing requirements regarding sustainability, environmental protection and occupational health and safety.
The overriding goal was the complete integration into the EHS management system (occupational health and safety, environmental management, energy management) of HAWE Hydraulik SE. In addition to the processes, interested parties such as authorities, customers and suppliers were taken into account.
Defined and achieved goals were, among others, the improvement of the management of hazardous substances through the acquisition of a suitable storage tank for oil, the installation of electricity meters in order to have meaningful and comparable energy data, zero accidents and events for health promotion. An essential part of the certification is additionally the documentation in order to have a corresponding data basis.
In the future, the measures in Slovenia will be expanded and other HAWE sites and subsidiaries will also be certified according to the EHS ISO standards.
