With the integrated management system of voestalpine Stahl Donawitz the quality and environmental management as well as the industrial safety were combined into a common structure. This structure focuses on the customer but also the company and employees.
The advantage of an integrated management system is that it makes a major contribution to “internal order” within the company and can be considered as a modern tool of corporate control. It produces clarity and transparency since structures are established, efficient processes promoted and operating cycles, competencies and responsibilities clearly defined and recorded.
The integrated management system also serves to establish quality, environmental and industrial safety objectives for the company. The accomplishment of the objectives is continuously monitored and regularly checked since the management is continuously improved and further optimised.
The effectiveness of the integrated management system is assessed by the management in an annual management review.
