Environment, Quality and Safety

The commitment to assure quality services to customers and the need to standardize administrative and productive processes, led PRF to implement, in 1999, a Quality Management System (NP EN ISO 9001), properly certified since 2002.

Aware that the focus on improving employees’ Safety, Hygiene and Health, as well as the concern regarding Environment Protection, are not only differentiation factors in the business scope, but also core values for the Company’s sustainability, PRF have implemented, in the last few years, several procedures in these domains, accomplishing in 2011 a Certification for its Environment and Safety, Hygiene and Health at Work Management Systems.

Both Systems’ implementation process began in 2011, having received the Certification for NP EN ISO 14001 (Environment) and OSHAH 18001 (Health and Safety) references in November 2012. This certification is the result of the Company’s strong commitment towards continuous improvement, as described in PRF’s Corporate Policy, based on the following pillars:

  • Meet customers and shareholders’ needs;
  • Comply with both legal and corporate requirements and compliance obligations;
  • Commit to protect environmental protection including pollution prevention;
  • Commit to prevent injuries, wounds and health damages;
  • Continuously improve the Management Systems efficiency;
  • Create value.

The focus on Environmental and Safety Certification is perceived as a strategic option for Company’s growth, however, most importantly, PRF believes this strategy will allow all shareholders (employees, customers, suppliers, the society in general) to be aware and confident of the Company’s Environmental and Safety best practices performance.
