Environmental and production safety

International standard systems applied: quality management, environmental and labour protection systems. Environmental problems of urbanized areas have arisen on the Earth along with foundation of the first cities. Ecological balance is impossible in an anthropogenic ecosystem, therefore man has to undertake all the regulation processes for materials and energy flows. Human society should regulate consumption of energy and resources in cities, i.e. raw materials for industry and food for people as well as the amount of toxic waste released into the air, water, and soil as an impact of industrial activities.

In the beginning of the third millennium the world is changing its attitude towards the interaction between man and the industrial sector. Categorical denial of the idea that technical excellence in oil products output must prevail over the growing people’s intolerance of living next to industrial objects causing water pollution and air poisoning is assuming more and more prominence. But the most important in this situation is to realize that the destruction of natural balance is not fatal, it can be prevented with knowingly competent and pre-planned measures.

Each company occupies a certain national and international market share and strives to improve its current position. Not only the quality and cost of production are crucial for this improvement, but also the company’s impact on the environment and its efficient use of natural renewable and non-renewable resources. In particular, the European Union declared its intention to allow to the market of its member states only the companies which are certified under the international standards ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004. Thus, the successful development of a company is predicated by its attractiveness to potential investors that take into account not only economic factors but also require documentary evidence of the ecological viability of the company.
