The main elements of our continuous improvement initiative are:
Ensure that our suppliers and partners share our vision
We inform our stakeholders about our commitments to health, safety, environmental protection and continued improvement. We make sure that each person is made aware of the challenges and takes steps to make improvements in a timely fashion.
Prevent all types of accidents and accidental pollution risks
Preventive measures are as closely connected to business activities as possible. Managers are trained in basic risk prevention and monitor the safety of each site. Significant resources are deployed to lower risks and preserve the environment. Substantial risks and other significant identifiable environmental impacts are subject to periodic review.
Adhere to industry standards and other regulations
Sofradir carries out strict monitoring of all the standards and regulations that apply to it. Sofradir takes corrective action to address non-conformities to bring it in total compliance with industry standards.
Sofradir has a permit authorizing the use of hazardous materials at the Veurey-Voroize site.
By monitoring all the standards and regulations, we can anticipate new regulations that will be required in the future. The company meets the requirements for facilities classified for environmental protection and all other applicable legal requirements.
Control our impact on the environment
Designing, developing and manufacturing products according to specific rules aimed at preserving the environment are indispensable to the survival and the biodiversity of the planet for present and future generations.
