Management systems

Tecsa S.r.l. offers “management systems engineering” considering that, in every organisation, the timely achievement of goals is not a “one-off” condition but must necessarily be an ongoing commitment of the organisation over time.

This can only be guaranteed by the investment of resources that operate in harmony with a structured system that is well coded and sized on actual needs and business capabilities.

This requires correct analysis of the organisation with respect to the subject to be monitored (with audits carried out by professionals, certified as “lead auditor” of a third party) and subsequently correct “system engineering”.  This service is followed by an assessment of performance expectations in relation to the appropriate KPIs.

Tecsa S.r.l. has, through its senior technicians, significant experience in the implementation of:

  • safety management systems for the prevention of major accidents;
  • workplace safety and health management systems (OHSAS 18001);
  • Fire safety management systems pursuant to Ministerial Decree 9 May 2007 in the presence of management constraints resulting from obtaining a derogation by means of the application of performance fire protection engineering methods;
  • environmental management systems (ISO 14001);
  • energy management systems (ISO 50001);
  • business continuity management systems (ISO 22313);
  • functional safety management systems for the implementation of the life cycle governed by the standards CEI IEC 61511 (see a more detailed explanation regarding the activities of S.r.l. TECSA relating to functional safety);
  • maintenance management systems (including for the purpose of inclusion of requirements from RAMS studies performed by the TECSA S.r.l. sector on reliability engineering and maintenance engineering, including support in the implementation of CMMS (Computerised Maintenance Management Systems) and the definition of specific KPIs. Management systems are complemented by the requirements of UNI EN 16646. This standard also establishes the relationship between the organizational strategic plan and the maintenance system and describes the interrelationships between the maintenance process and all the other management processes of physical assets. It addresses the role and importance of maintenance within the system of managing physical assets throughout the life cycle of an asset;
  • physical asset integrity management systems (AIM – Asset Integrity Management), particularly for offshore and onshore gas and oil companies (ISO 55000).

Since 2015 TECSA S.r.l., based on experience gained in the implementation of management systems according to the standards OHSAS 18001 and ISO 31000, has carried out activities leading up to the preparation, implementation and integration of existing systems in the context of the adoption of the future standard ISO 45001 on managing health and safety in the workplace whose publication is expected in the autumn of 2016. This standard benefits from international experience that has developed according to the standard 18001 and incorporates the ILO guidelines.

Tecsa S.r.l. offers assistance upon request jointly with the certification group auditors.

As part of its analysis of the organisation both for the purposes of the assessment of the level of safety and for the purposes of the assessment of the degree of resilience, TECSA performs audits and assessments related to the assessment of complexity according to the very recent standard (December 2015) UNI 11613. The standard provides each organisation with guidelines to plan, develop, implement, monitor and review the process of Complexity Assessment (VACO) of its system in order to identify and classify problems and to improve the resilience of that organisation. The Complexity Assessment is included in the study of organisations that benefit from the application of quantitative assessment methods including analytical constraint techniques (“Theory of constraints” by E.M. Goldratt).

The analysis of the existing management systems and the formulation of new management systems is carried out together with an analysis of the company organization and of the processes connected to the scope of application of the system. The documentation of the assessment conducted benefits from a strong use of the international process illustration notation called BPMN (Business Process Modeling Notation) in its most recent version 2.0
