Within a common strategy throughout the BUNZL group, Juba is continuing its work to guarantee health and safety for all its workers, obtaining the OHSAS 18001:2007 certification awarded by AENOR. This certification specifically guarantees requirements for an Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management system, intended to allow an organisation to control its risks and improve its OHS.
Using good management, we intend to harmonise a common system for a leading group in the Spanish market with wide geographic dispersion.
Thanks to its methodology, we aim to reduce accidents in the workplace and increase productivity, by identifying, assessing and controlling the risks associated with each work station, and avoiding causes of accidents and illnesses in the workplace. The perception of a safer environment for workers goes hand in hand with a drop in illnesses, sick leave or absenteeism, an increase in productivity, a progressive reduction in accidents and a fall in sanctions and unnecessary spending.
The system helps to meet legislation in terms of prevention, integrating it into the organisation's processes, leading to an improvement in the company's internal management and the communication between the company and the worker, and the company and administrations and interested parties. This certificate is the guarantee and the tool used by health and safety managers to interact independently with the whole organisation
By getting this certificate, we aim to promote a preventive culture by integrating prevention into the company's general system. This was the management's intention and it has required commitment from all workers, middle managers and directors.
AENOR, our certifying entity is the undeniable leader in Occupational Health and Safety certification in Spain. Since 2004, year of the first Occupational Health and Safety management certificate in accordance with OHSAS 18001, more than 1,300 organisations have certified their Occupational Health and Safety management system with AENOR.
The OHSAS certification is a management tool that provides safety to all interested parties in the product supply chain.
In addition, Juba has continued to decisively strengthen its environmental commitment by adding new initiatives over the last few weeks:
- Changing traditional lighting for LED bulbs: predicted 2.5% energy-saving
- Consumption of paper with forestry certification and a FSC® chain of custody
- Most of Juba's car fleet is classified as having level “C” emissions. These vehicles meet the requirements currently set by the European Union concerning emissions. In parallel, we have starting using hybrid cars.
