BS OHSAS 18001:2007
At the Forbo Movement Systems sites in Hanover and Garbsen (Germany), health and safety and accident prevention are subject to specified standards in line with the standardized health and safety management system. The certification‘s goal is to prevent accidents in the workplace, work-related injuries and illnesses and to protect the health of the workforce in the workplace in general.
EN ISO 50001
The above-mentioned German sites are also the pioneers when it comes to launching an EN ISO 50001 energy-management system. The goal is to cut energy consumption consistently. A dedicated energy-management team develops long-term strategies to ensure this goal is achieved. Participation in the Netzwerk Energieeffizienz Hannover-Harz (Hannover-Harz Energy-efficiency network) helps us gain from the experience of other companies and vice versa.
The steps we take to cut energy consumption are based on increasing awareness of the areas where consumption is caused. The improvements trialed in Hanover (Germany) and Garbsen (Germany) are in future to be transferred to other sites. Innovative new processes are also planned. These include using energy emitted from the afterburner for heating purposes and a new control system for compressed air.
