Mitsubishi HiTec Paper receives two safety certifications

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper receives two safety certifications

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe is the first company in the paper industry to receive the ‘Safe with a System’ approval from the BG RCI, the professional association for raw materials and the chemical industry. The company has also been certified for occupational health and safety management (AGM) in accordance with DIN ISO 45001:2018.

The DIN ISO 45001 for occupational health and safety management replaces the BS OHSAS 18001:2007 standard, which was withdrawn in 2018. The new standard requires the assessment of risks and opportunities with a preventative approach, thus increasing the demands on management. When companies are preparing for assessment for the ‘Safe with a System’ seal of approval with the additional module DIN ISO 45001, certain legal requirements must be met and competence criteria for employees must be determined.

Managing director Dr Martin Schreer said: ‘If you think about the safety and health of your employees from the outset, you will achieve more for your company and your economic success in the long term. This assessment and the certification of our occupational health and safety management are logical steps for us to further advance occupational safety in our company. Our exemplary company integration management, which was awarded the "Action Alliance Schleswig-Holstein", ideally complements the AGM system.’

The new DIN ISO 45001 certification is another component of the voluntary compliance system at Mitsubishi HiTec Paper. The monitoring audits of the integrated management systems DIN EN ISO 9001 (quality management), DIN EN ISO 14001 (environmental management) and DIN EN ISO 50001 (energy management) have also been carried out successfully for both European locations.
