Safety at work and care for health and the environment are always the top priority at Istrabenz Plini Group. We are guided by our responsibility to our employees and surrounding residents, and our advanced safety management system enables us to respond to safety challenges quickly and efficiently at all times. Improving the safety culture in all Group companies remains a priority. Working with our parent company SIAD and using their security system further strengthens our resilience to the various security challenges in the modern world. 

In order to continuously develop and upgrade our safety management system, Istrabenz Plini is certified according to the requirements of SIST ISO 45001.

Within Istrabenz Plini and the SIAD Group, we are constantly updating our risk assessment system, providing training and encouraging employees to follow good safety practices. We advocate a healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise, a varied diet, no smoking and no alcohol consumption, and we keep our employees regularly informed about new developments in healthy living and workplace safety. 

We are moving our entire safety management system away from learning from mistakes and towards modern safety management and learning from positive examples. Our long-term goal is to achieve Safety 2 standards. We treat all accidents at work with the utmost seriousness, always guided by the vision of “Zero Accidents at Work”.

Our key tasks are:

  • Identifying hazards and taking corrective and preventive measures.
  • Continuous security upgrades at our facilities.
  • Upgrading active and passive security in the company.
  • Training of employees and informing the surrounding area of the dangers.
  • Actively informing our customers through electronic media, brochures and leaflets. 
  • Working with firefighters and civil protection in the area of our largest plants.
  • Setting an example in the gas industry in safety, health and environmental care.

Istrabenz Plini has two plants with a higher risk of large-scale accidents in Slovenia (SEVESO), namely in Koper and Celje. The most serious hazards are associated with the storage of large quantities of LPG and oxygen. We are aware of our responsibility for our safety and the safety of our surroundings, which is why we continuously monitor our safety system through risk assessments and regular safety inspections, and carry out all tasks in compliance with the legislation. We keep the public informed of all new developments and ensure a regular flow of information.

Environmental care is one of the Istrabenz Plini Group’s fundamental policies. We are developing applications for industrial gases through a wide range of activities in all industrial segments and manufacturing processes, many of which are an indispensable part of modern ecological solutions.

Our solutions, developed in collaboration with established experts, reduce energy consumption in a wide range of industries and improve our relationship with the environment. We are committed to using gas as an energy source, which by the very nature of its operation contributes to reducing pollution.

We are committed to leading by example and to reducing or eliminating our negative impact on the environment, even in our day-to-day activities. We continuously strive to ensure the efficient use of energy for heating, vehicle propulsion and electricity by using the latest technology in our appliances and vehicles.

Water used in the technological processes of inspecting and testing pressure vessels and tankers is recycled and reused.
