Safety & Environment
Besides quality and reliability in terms of delivery, other important operating aspects include health, safety and environment, and Smulders requires that they meet the highest standards. For this reason our operations are based on carefully documented working methods; we perform risk analyses on an ongoing basis and we keep records of all the production phases in our projects. This type of dynamics can be achieved only in an open-minded organisation, where all the employees feel jointly responsible for the full circle of offering the best service possible.
Smulders realises very well that our passion for steel can only grow in a safe and eco-friendly environment. We want to make a strong contribution to such an environment, not only through our activities in the area of renewable energy, but also by ensuring that our companies operate in a safe and sustainable manner – always and everywhere.
For many years Smulders has been dedicated in its responsibility to the environment and social commitment. Since our early days we have fostered a spirit of collaboration, cooperating with local schools and supporting community projects. In recent years, this dedication has evolved and is now embedded in our culture and behaviours. A corporate policy, with long term targets and commitments has been established as we strive to lower our carbon footprint and play our part in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Quality is assured at each stage of our project delivery process, by following a rigid set of procedures under the supervision of our project managers, quality departments, welding engineers, technology engineers and where required, appointed independent third parties.
We safeguard and ensure that all our welding and general construction activities are carried out to the applicable standards and to the required certification. Surface treatment is applied according to the set requirements and Smulders invests in the latest technology for environmentally friendly application of high-quality paint systems, designed for long-life function and operation.
Our management system is certified to the following international standards: ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environment), OHSAS 18001 (safety), VCA P, VCA** (Spomasz), ISO 50001 (Spomasz), EN1090 EXC 2, EN1090 EXC 4, EN ISO 3834-2 and Achilles.
