Marchon Italia: certified production facilities
The Veneto-based company has certified its production facilities for environmental sustainability and safety in the workplace
The company has achieved the ISO 14001:2004 certification for environmental management and the OHSAS 18001:2007 certification for the management of health and safety in the workplace.
Thanks to constant attention towards the principles of sustainability, quality and safety, Marchon Italia – a subsidiary of VSP, a US group and world leader for the integrated management of visual care – has achieved two important international acknowledgements for its production facilities at Puos d'Alpago and Fortogna.
UNI EN ISO 14001:2004 certification guarantees the development of an effective environmental management system with regard to pollution, the rational use of energy sources and the appropriate disposal of waste and refuse.
OHSAS 18001 certifies the company's reliability in terms of the effective and efficient management of health and safety in the workplace by implementing systematic prevention and protection actions aimed at minimizing risks for employees.
The certificates are valid for three years and were issued by the certification committee of SGS Systems & Service Certification, the world leader for inspections, verifications, tests and certification.
"We are very satisfied about achieving these two important certifications," commented Giancarla Agnoli, Managing Director of Marchon Italia, "which testify to the specific attention Marchon Italia pays to the workplace and the environment".
"Being the first Veneto company and one of the few in Italy's eyewear sector to have achieved these integrated certifications for our facilities at Puos d'Alpago and Fortogna, makes Marchon Italia an example of sustainable development and of the ability to achieve the right balance of profitability, reduced environmental impact and the protection of the health and safety of its employees".
"Quality, improvements and responsibility are at the basis of the VSP Group's and Marchon's mission" - Agnoli concluded. "I would like to thank the entire team for its constant and invaluable commitment and for believing in and supporting the company during the entire certification procedure".
