Coem’s voluntary decision to become certified to increasingly stringent standards to protect workers indicates the company’s choice to place its employees at the forefront of its values.


Since 2015, Coem has been implementing, maintaining and certifying a Management System that complies with the main standard in the world in terms of Occupational Health and Safety. It was first certified according to the British standard BS OHSAS 18001, and from October 2020 according to the highest international regulatory reference available and transposed into Italian legislation under UNI ISO 45001:2018 (the first international standard defining minimum standards of good practice for the protection of workers worldwide).

The standard, developed with the contribution of experts from over 70 countries, provides an international framework that considers the interaction between the company and its business. It is because of its non-compulsory nature that the corporate organisational model defined in accordance with the ISO standard is marked by a willingness to take on the commitment to meet increasingly stringent requirements with respect to legal obligations.

In particular, the Management System includes not only the organisational structure, the planning, management and control activities of responsibilities, procedures, processes and resources, but also the determination of risks and, above all, of the opportunities arising from them, at a higher level. This is made possible by an accurate analysis of the context in which Coem operates and the periodic assessment of all factors (internal and external) and their requirements in terms of Occupational Health and Safety.
