Ambienta portfolio company Safim among the first companies in Europe to be awarded the new Occupational Health & Safety standard
Ambienta SGR, Europe’s largest sustainability focused Private Equity investor, is pleased to announce its portfolio company Safim S.p.A. is one of five companies in Italy, and among the first 100 companies in Europe to be awarded the new Occupational Health & Safety standard ISO 45001, with TÜV certification.
According to the International Labour Organisation over 7,600 people die every day from work-related accidents or diseases, with the burden of occupational injuries and diseases being significant, both for employers and the wider economy (reference). ISO 45001 was developed in 2018 with the goal of providing employers with a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions.
The prestigious certification comes following Ambienta’s effort to achieve a transformational change in the capabilities and standards of the company over the last 15 months, as Pietro Santoro the newly installed CEO, works closely with the founding Mamei family to transition Safim to the next stage of its growth story. This recognition highlights the success and capability of Ambienta’s proprietary programme ‘ESG in Action’, integrating responsible investment factors on Environmental, Social and Governance issues into daily operations.
