Since the end of 2008, Scavolini is the first company in the Italian kitchen sector to have obtained certification for its Occupational Health and Safety Management System. The UNI ISO 45001 standard (which replaced the BS OHSAS 18001 standard), which our company implements, defines the requirements of a System for managing occupational health and safety risks.
The decision to obtain UNI ISO 45001 certification is part of that spirit of "continuous improvement" that defines our company. Previously, Scavolini had already obtained the UNI EN ISO 9001 Quality Management certification and the UNI EN ISO 14001 Environmental Management certification.
The UNI ISO 45001 certification denotes Scavolini’s strong commitment and deep awareness towards safeguarding the health and safety of its employees, a highly sensitive and extremely topical issue nowadays. By actively involving the entire company structure in this project with the aim of promoting a genuine culture of occupational safety, Scavolini reaffirms its complete awareness of the importance of human capital in contributing to an organisation's success. This initiative perfectly reflects the company's individual-oriented philosophy, pursued with continuity, sense of responsibility and deep belief from the outset and evident in the company's attitude towards its own employees and commercial partners, as well as towards customers.
The UNI ISO 45001 certification was awarded to Scavolini by SGS Italia, which previously certified the Quality Management System and the Environmental Management System. An independent body, SGS is a world leader in the testing and certification of industrial goods and services. The company is headquartered in Switzerland and has offices in over 140 countries worldwide. It has been present in Italy since 1915.
