Management system in Apator SA
Increasing customer demands and growing, often global, competition force companies to constantly seek better solutions enabling them to continuously improve product quality, reduce costs and create effective work processes and management structures. One such solution is implementing a quality management system based on PN-EN-ISO 9001:2015. Concerned about the state of the environment, the Company's Management Board, on behalf of the entire staff, undertakes to comply with the requirements of the applicable legal regulations in the environmental aspects occurring in the company, among others: pollutants emitted into the air, wastewater and waste generated. The declaration of conformity results from both the applicable legal regulations and provisions of the developed environmental management system according to PN-EN ISO 14001:2015. The above requirements are also implemented through developing product design solutions based on the materials used and environmentally friendly technological processes. By implementing an environmental management system and an occupational health and safety management system according to PN-ISO 45001:2018, the company not only pledges to protect the environment but also ensures safe working conditions and significantly reduces its manufacturing costs. In order to take care of the information assets of the organisation, an information security management system has been implemented in the company according to PN-EN ISO/IEC 27001:2014. The measures taken by the Company are focused on ensuring information security in all its processing systems, taking into account the interests of the Company, its shareholders and its Customers and Cooperators.
The formulated and published Management Policy defines the goal to which all employees of the company aim.
Top management governs the company through implementing activities under the quality management system, environmental management system, occupational health and safety management system and information security management system, among others. All these activities seek to implement:
- Quality management policies, which aim to meet customer expectations, increase the efficiency of the company's operations and ensure the competitiveness of its products by continuously improving the main processes and systematically implementing technical innovations that enhance the product
