Policies

Society, government and more importantly our customers is the industrial and Oil and Gas sectors expect from us not only compliance with the law but a real commitment to manage environmental risk, safety and occupational health with the assurance
of quality to prevent accidents of all kinds and to improve and optimize the way we face the risks and performance of our organization.

 

HSEQ management, which includes safety and occupational health, environment and quality are commonly treated as separate functions within organizations. But FTC Energy Group has promoted the management of these functions through a single management system covering every aspect holistically toward a common goal throughout our organization, this goal is: total customer satisfaction.

 

Having an integrated management system help us  to optimize the resources of the organization by unifying language, processes ,
procedures, manuals  and requirements established with standards practices approved by common international organizations
 such ISO 9001 (quality), OHSAS 18001 (occupational health and safety) and ISO 14001 to name a few.

 

Many of these interrelated elements are set by international standards from which we have benefit from by having an unified approach. This corporate alignment to international standards and policies help us to establish a criteria that is validated
by international entities as good business practices.

 

The implementation of an integrated management system for more than a decade has enabled FTC Energy group to:

 

-Increase the effectiveness of a management system by unifying objectives, policies, inspections, audits and monitoring of various subsystems under one criterion.

 

-Eliminate rankings among subsystems through its evaluation as a whole in order to identify the effects and correlations between processes.

 

-More efficient use of available resources, reducing the possibility of duplication of effort in the control and management of integrated systems.

 

-The generation of an internal audit system that is relevant to the company and evaluates the activities of the company as a whole

 

-HSEQ Integrated management system provides centralized management risk identification that facilitates the organization and managerial control of the system eliminating excessive complexity.

 

-Holistic management of HSEQ components promotes greater commitment from the areas of the organization by facilitating their understanding and adoption due to the simplification of processes.

 

Establish and maintain an integrated management system in HSEQ has created  an organizational culture oriented to quality commitment within the member of our organization that act with a conviction to achieve the common goal of TOTAL  CUSTOMER SATISFACTION as a basic and definitive measure of how we do as a company.
