GRI-403-1 Occupational health and safety management system

There is an Occupational Health and Safety System (OHSS) in all PPC facilities that apply ISO 45001 as well as in the other facilities where there is a requirement for an OHSS III study and/or notification according to the Joint Ministerial Decision 172058/20106.

Risk identification and reporting is done via the supervisor/suggestion boxes/relevant bodies (Occupational Health and Safety Committee). There is also an OHS policy, which includes details of imposed sanctions by Management, where applicable Occupational Health & Safety Policy.

Finally, there is an OHS questionnaire in place which enables further investigation of incidents.
