Here at MARRAFFA Quality and Safety are two fixed constants. Following certification of the Quality Management System in accordance with ISO 9001:2008, we were also awarded the BH OHSAS 18001 certification for Health and Safety Management System. The OHSAS 18001:1999 regulations, issued by the BSI (British Standards Institution) in 1999 and revised in 2007, are the leading reference model for managing health and safety at work on a global scale. The desire to attain this certification, which companies adhere to voluntarily, came from the CEO and founder of MARRAFFA, Michele Marraffa who understood that this achievement demonstrates that the company’s Health and Safety Management System complies with the more stringent international standards. In order to achieve such results, the management has invested heavily in the consolidation of our organizational structure.
Thanks to the hard work carried out by our engineers Marco Marangi and Antonio Colucci, our Occupational Health and Safety Management System is fully compliant with all relevant regulations. MARRAFFA has also focused attention on staff training in the field of both Quality Control and Health and Safety, helping existing staff members to qualify as Safety Advisors, following a course at AIFES (Associazione Italiana Formatori Esperti in Sicurezza sul Lavoro).
Here at MARRAFFA we do not consider this achievement as a final destination, instead we prefer to see it as a starting point for even more ambitious goals, which aim to extend and reinforce a culture of continual improvement in both Quality Control and Health and Safety, across the entire company structure. This will no doubt entail constant attention to detail, a systematic review of conduct and procedures, a thorough analysis of any errors or non-conformities and the subsequent search for the right corrective action to take with the involvement of the relevant staff.
