In MAPNA Group, we have designed several processes to identify HSE training needs of MAPNA employees, contractors and subcontractors, and to provide necessary training for all to ensure continuous improvement of employees’ competencies and qualifications. Training might be carried in the form of internal courses, external courses, on-the-job training, and reeducation programs, or by monitoring the employees’ performance and providing them with the necessary feedback.
MONITORING AND MEASURING ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE
To evaluate the environmental performance, MAPNA Group deploys the ISO14031 standard approach which follows the PDCA cycle of management. The stages of this cycle are as follows:
A) Plan: This stage includes the design and selection of parameters. For selecting the parameters, it is possible to use already existing parameters or define new ones.
B) Do: This stage includes the following items:
- Collecting information related to the selected parameters;
- Analyzing and transforming information to data for describing environmental performance;
- Comparing the available data with the criteria for assessing environmental performance;
- Reporting and exchanging data related to environmental performance.
C) & D) Check and Act: at these two stages, we review and adjust EPE processes.
Based on the ISO14031 standard, EPE indicators are divided into 3 categories:
- Management Performance Indicator (MPI): This indicator provides the necessary information about the manager’s efforts and its impact on environmental performance. MPI should provide the necessary information about the organization’s capabilities and efforts in the management of issues such as training, legal requirements, resource allocation, environmental costs, purchasing and product development.
- Operational Performance Indicator (OPI): This indicator represents the environmental performance of an organization’s processes. OPI provides information for managing the environmental performance of an organization’s processes.
- Environmental Condition Indicator (ECI): This indicator provides information about an organization’s performance and its effect on the local, regional, national and global states of the environment. ECI shows the relationship between an organization’s activities, products and services on the one hand and state of the environment on the other.
