- Grupa LOTOS S.A. Integrated Management System Policy
- Certificate IQNet
Grupa LOTOS S.A. was the first Polish chemical sector company and the second company in Poland to have obtained the Integrated Management System certificate in 2003.
The Integrated Management System (IMS) now in place is based on the requirements of the following standards:
- PN-EN ISO 9001:2015 – Quality management systems
- PN-EN ISO 14001:2015 – Environmental management systems
- PN-ISO 45001:2018 – Health and safety at work management systems
- PN-EN ISO 27001:2017 – Information security management systems
- PN-EN ISO 22301:2020 – Business continuity management systems
The first component of the IMS is the quality management system, which ensures optimum process execution, supports the implementation of the Company’s strategy, contributes to the Company’s proper organisational functioning, fosters its corporate culture and helps meet customer requirements.
The second component is related to environmental activities. Care for the natural environment is one of the principal elements of Grupa LOTOS’ growth strategy. The technologies used today and those that will be implemented in the future meet national and international environmental requirements. The implementation of an environmental management system is dictated by constant care for the environment. Its primary objective is to support environmental protection and pollution prevention activities in a manner that pays due regard to social and economic needs.
The third component is the health and safety at work management system, which explicitly addresses the leadership and commitment of managers and the participation of employees in the development and operation of the H&S system. It requires that regular measures be taken to improve occupational health and safety conditions.
The other components of the IMS are the information security and the business continuity management systems. As an operator of an essential service, Grupa LOTOS S.A. has implemented the requirements of ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 to ensure a high level of security of the IT systems supporting the provision of the essential service.
In addition, Grupa LOTOS S.A. has implemented elements of the PN-EN ISO 50001:2018 – Energy Management System standard, which aims to improve the efficiency of energy use. Also, given the possibility of fulfilling orders for the army, Grupa LOTOS S.A. has in place the AQAP 2110 system.
The Integrated Management System has been designed as a tool for steady improvement of the effectiveness and efficiency of the entire organisation. The ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 systems are certified, which for our customers is a guarantee of care for quality, and for our nearest environment it is proof of our care for the natural environment. For the Grupa LOTOS employees, it is an assurance of safety at work, in line with the principle that ‘no job is so important or urgent that we cannot take the time to perform it safely.
