Integrated Management System
Nowadays, ISO Management Systems are business determining standards. More and more enterprises seek suppliers and subcontractors only among companies with implemented and certified Management Systems. The implementation of a management system is not a fad, but a condition for competitiveness. The requirement for the application of Management Systems concerning quality, environmental management, occupational health and safety, power management, among others, applies to all companies, regardless of size, type of ownership or industry.
As a leader of change, KGHM began to deploy standardised management systems since the beginning of the 1990s, first in its Departments (smelters) and subsidiaries. Initially, it concerned quality management systems and resulted from the need to search for external markets (in the case of companies) or meeting trade requirements (the London Metal Exchange in the case of smelters).
In this respect the leading department was the Cedynia Wire Rod Plant, which implemented a quality management system as early as in 1995. Currently, the smelter uses an integrated management system which meets the requirements of the PN-EN ISO 9001, PN-EN ISO 14001 and PN-N-18001 standards. Implemented and certified management systems with similar scopes also operate in the Legnica and Głogów smelters and in the Ore Enrichment Plant. The only difference being that the Legnica and Głogów smelters possess an Occupational Health and Safety Management System compliant with the requirements of OHSAS 18001 and PN-N-18001. Whereas the occupational health and safety management system operational in the Mining Plants is certified in accordance with the Polish PN-N-18001 standard. In turn, the management systems implemented in the Tailings Plant meet the requirements of standards PN-EN ISO 14001, PN-EN ISO 50001 and PN-N-18001, an IT services management system compliant with the ISO/IEC 20000-1 standard operates in the Data Center, and an OHS management systems certified for compliance with the PN-N-18001 standard in respect of underwater works in underground mining excavations remains in force in the Mine-Smelter Emergency Rescue Unit. The current state of implementation and certification of standardised management systems in the Divisions of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. is presented in the following figure 1.
Today we are working on the implementation of an Integrated Management System in KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. on the basis of the IMS Implementation Blueprint developed within the project in KGHM Polska Miedź S.A., based on process management and a systemic approach according to international standards, among others:
- Quality Management System (compliant with ISO 9001),
- Environmental Management System (compliant with ISO 14001),
- Occupational Health and Safety Management System (compliant with OHSAS 18001),
- Information Security Management System (compliant with ISO 27001),
- IT Services Management System (compliant with ISO 20000),
- Power Management System (compliant with ISO 50001).
*The OHS Management System operating in the Mine-Smelter Emergency Rescue Unit is certified for compliance with the PN-N-18001 standard in respect of underwater works in underground mining excavations.
