Occupational Health and Safety Management System

The occupational health and safety management system functions as part of the Integrated Management System. Its objective is to create and enhance the management mechanisms at the Company in order to mitigate the risks and threats for the employees. The process is performed in a repetitive cycle of activities as well as planning, organisational and audit-related decisions, based on developed procedures and instructions, while monitoring is supported by an IT system. This enables the Company to improve its work in this area and, in particular, to take actions to ensure that safe technological processes are used, and to prevent accidents, occupational illnesses and potential accidents. A declaration was made to identify, monitor and mitigate the risks which may affect occupational safety; measures for promoting save behaviour of the employees have also been declared and intensified.

The management of Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa S.A. is committed to providing the necessary funds and resources for the purpose of creating safe attitudes amongst its employees, monitoring threats and reducing their impact on the work environment.

This enables the Company to improve our work in those areas and, in particular, to take action to ensure that safe technological processes are used, and to prevent accidents, occupational illness and potential accidents.

As part of the certified Occupational Health and Safety Management System, planned and ad hoc internal audits as well as annual supervision audits are carried out at the mines of JSW S.A.

The strategy for improving occupational health and safety and development of JSW S.A. includes improving the implemented and certified Occupational Health and Safety Management System at JSW S.A.’s plants for the purpose of increasing the employees’ awareness of existing threats, their identification and prevention.
