КPО: Change the World For the Best!
Karachaganak Petroleum Operating B.V. (KPO)gives great attention to preservation of the environment. In late 2011 it has successfully completed the re-certification audit of company’s Occupational Health and Safety Management System and Environmental Management System against the international standards OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001.
In this regard, KPO’s General Director Giuseppe Pasi said: “As a world class operation, KPO is committed to the highest standards of occupational health, safety and environmental performance. Having maintained the certificate of conformity to the OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 standards is a major recognition of our efforts directed at continuous improvement of our performance in this area.”
OHSAS 18001:2007 is an international occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system standard. Introduction of this standard has helped KPO to establish a management system aimed at minimizing potential risk associated with company’s activities to employees and contractors. At the same time, this has allowed KPO to gain internationally accredited assurance in the field of occupational health and safety.
The ISO 14001:2004 environmental management system standard has helped PKO minimize a potential negative impact on the environment and comply with all applicable laws and regulations. This ISO standard specifies requirements for establishing an environmental policy, determining significant environmental aspects and impacts of activities, planning environmental objectives and measurable targets, implementation and operation of programs to ensure continual improvement implementing preventive and corrective actions, and periodic management review.
