Quality policy, environment, energy and power management and occupational health at TŽ-MS
according to ČSN EN ISO 9001, IATF 16 949, API SPEC. Q1, ČSN EN ISO 14001 and ČSN EN ISO 50001
The key business activity of TŘINECKÉ ŽELEZÁRNY, a.s., and MORAVIA STEEL a.s., is the production and sale of metallurgical products for which their finalization and added value are increased. An integral part of business activities is the continuous improvement of quality, reduction of environmental burden including efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, employee health care and optimal improvement of energy management leading to reduced energy consumption. Taking into account the social responsibility of all stakeholders and with the efforts for the sustainable development of both companies and region, the following principles are defined in the different areas of the strategic framework:
Customers, our material processors and suppliers are considered partners participating in the quality of our products. The focus is on the current and future requirements of customers and processors. The emphasis is placed especially on the extension of cooperation with these partners especially in the area of most demanding products like wire, special bar steel and the products thereof, rails and seamless tubes.
Partnership with suppliers of major commodities, services and energy makes it possible to plan responsibly and react to the immediate situation inside and outside the metallurgical plant.
We respond to the requirements of partners, including state and regional authorities, to reduce the environmental impacts of used technologies and products and gradually remove the old environmental burdens of TŘINECKÉ ŽELEZÁRNY, a.s. Our endeavour is to follow the safety program for the prevention of major accidents, to prevent damage to the health of employees of the partner companies on the TŽ-MS premises. We provide all relevant information to our partners.
We also apply the principles of partnership to employees and social partners. By strengthening the elements of cooperation, mutual trust, information sharing, we strengthen the awareness of co-responsibility for the performance of production tasks according to customer requirements and co-responsibility for ensuring the safety of work and products.
The development of production base, technological and research activities are aimed at continuous improvement of product quality, introduction of new products and production technologies so that:
- the present and future requirements of customers and processors for the quality of deliveries are respected,
- the requirements for products in the regulated sphere (construction, pressure vessels) are met,
- raw materials, materials and energy are used efficiently and their consumption is reduced with the expected positive impact on the production of greenhouse gases within the climate protection,
- also take into account the energy demands of energy-saving process technologies
- and devices in multi-variant choices,
- reducing the amount of waste generated and increasing the proportion of its primarily material recovery in accordance with the principles of circular economy,
- total negative impacts of production on health and life of people, environment and property are preventively reduced,
- the occurrence of major accidents and their impact on the health and life of humans, the environment, property and business results are minimized,
The basis for providing qualified staff for TŽ-MS is the effective cooperation with state, regional and private schools, especially of technical focus. The staff training system provides for the needs of all existing and prepared development projects with the simultaneous suppression of unwanted fluctuations of key employees. Increasing intellectual capital is an essential approach to human resource management, leading to an increase of:
- qualification, knowledge and abilities of employees at all the executive and management positions,
- awareness of responsibility for quality and safety of products,
- awareness of responsibility for their health, co-workers' health and work environment,
- environmental awareness with the aim of prevention focused on decrease of environment pollution,
- standard of prevention of serious accidents at all the management levels,
- awareness of the need to effectively manage energy and avoid its waste.
Both manufacturing and support activities are subject to reinforcement of the principles of a process approach focusing on prevention, which, in conjunction with project management and teamwork at all levels, are the basis for improving all certified management systems.
The manufacturing processes, as the largest consumers, are planning their production with a view to optimizing their energy consumption in order not to exceed the set target values in ensuring compliance with both the labour and the overall environmental requirements.
The management system in the TŽ-MS Group responds to the changing business environment by optimizing management and production processes, in particular through the introduction of progressive planning systems, automation and robotics. The finalization of production processes is based on a zero error strategy, especially for deliveries to automotive and petroleum industry.
Emphasis is placed on internal and external communication with involved parties of the results achieved. Conditions are created for the wide involvement of employees in the issues of integrated system improvement, incl. energy savings and their active approach is required.
