The history of Lubrimetal over the last thirty years has been closely aligned with the development of system certifications.
In fact, since the 1990’s Lubrimetal has been at the vanguard in building and adopting pertinent management systems. So much so, that in 1993 it was amongst the first to be awarded ISO 9001 quality standard certification bearing number 82. Subsequently, and undergoing no fewer than 27 independent surveys certificate number 82 has been renewed every 3 years, passing the often in-depth annual inspection audits. Through VISION 2000 the quality system has been brought into the current millennium with the standard being updated in 2008 and, most recently, in 2015.
In 1996 environmental certification commenced initially according to the standard ISO 14001. From that date until now, having certificate number 572, Lubrimetal has continuously passed annual audits and renewal controls, adapting its systems to the revisions of 2006 and 2015.
Finally, in 2000, Lubrimetal also obtained certification in accordance with OHSAS 18001 in relation to safety in the workplace, with certificate numbered 3554, recognizing the company’s ability to manage health and safety in a systematic manner. Italian legislation has evolved over this period from the old 626/1994 to the current text 81/2008 which this year is 10 years old. The 18001 standard, albeit with some delay, was first updated in 2007 and is now, finally, being aligned with ISO standards. 2018 should be the year in which the international standardization authority will issue the new ISO 45001 on safety.
These three certificates have always been evidence of Lubrimetal’s commitment to demonstrate its excellence. This has been officially recognized and, in 2000, Lubrimetal was awarded Certificate of Excellence number 8, granted for having integrated management system in place meeting all relevant standards.
For Lubrimetal, an integrated management system is not just about certificates, it is the core of its business ethics.
