Orkla has implemented a common EHS framework that applies for all Orkla units. The framework is leaning on Orkla EHS policy and the Orkla EHS standard is the cornerstone of the framework.
The standard is divided in EHS management system and separate sections for occupational health, work safety and external environment.
The EHS management system section is strictly based on international standards; ISO 14001 (Standard for Environmental Management) and OHSAS 18001 (Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management).
The essential part of the framework is the EHS network including contacts at various organization levels. There is an EHS contact in every unit, company and business area.
To support the EHS process Orkla has launched training programs, a common database, audit tool, safety climate survey and a common EHS reporting system.
