With a robust management system, the companies Toyo Setal and EBR, which are part of TSPI Participações e Investimentos, present a high performance in QHSE (Quality, Safety, Environment and Health) and are prepared to meet any requirements legal requirements and the requirements of the most stringent customers, national or international.
The EBR, for example, has not registered an accident with lost time for 3 and a half years. For the company, this performance is the result of several initiatives, such as the continuous investment in QHSE issues, the unrestricted support of the company’s management, the strong involvement of the leadership and operational and behavioral training.
Over the past five years, the two companies have invested heavily in actions that have led to the evolution and maturation of the management system and the strengthening of the QHSE culture. Companies have strong policies and a very strong focus on human behavior, which is an essential factor in achieving the goal of ZERO 24×7. Toyo Setal and EBR’s goal can be defined simply: “Zero incidents, zero harm to people and zero harm to the environment”. The objective is for employees to leave work the same way they entered, with health and safety. For this, everyone must adopt a safe behavior.
For this result, companies adopt the Behavioral Method for Blocking Unwanted Occurrences, which advocates avoiding five negative behaviors that can cause two critical failures. The method also includes three techniques to avoid negative behaviors. At the time of integration, all employees, whether in-house or outsourced, undergo six-hour training on the method, risks and control measures.
Integrated and certified management system
In addition, the QHSE management system is certified by ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environment) and OHSAS 18001 (safety and health). The audit for the migration of OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 is scheduled for November, which now emphasizes the participation of senior management and employees in matters related to safety and health.
At Toyo Setal and at EBR, the involvement of management and leadership with these issues is visible, which reinforces the culture and makes it clear that quality, people’s integrity and environmental protection are fundamental values of the companies.< /p>
Companies invest in security, certifications and provide the necessary resources. In addition, it is common to see directors in the production area personally inspecting safety conditions. Employees, on the other hand, are encouraged to point out potential risks, even small ones, and behavioral or operational deviations so that they can be corrected.
Customers recognize the focus companies place on issues of quality, safety, environment and health. Good QHSE results are also important for new businesses, as they are among the pre-qualification factors for competing for new contracts. On the other hand, they are also considered when contracting sub-suppliers.
