Our Quality Policy
Since 1987, EPSILON-COMPOSITE has developed its unique expertise in the pultrusion of carbon fibre profiles. This experience and our capacity for innovation are now recognised worldwide and are based on controlled and reliable development, manufacturing and marketing processes. Confronted with numerous commercial opportunities, EPSILON COMPOSITE has decided to intensify diversification towards finished products, in order to move up the value chain created as a result of carbon profiles.
Our Quality Management System, implemented daily by all EPSILON COMPOSITE employees, is based on continuous improvement and a constant striving for performance. This provides us with the strong and solid foundations necessary to satisfy our customers and support our future developments.
Our Quality Policy guidelines are directly linked to our strategic guidance, their purpose being to revitalise and perpetuate our management style and demonstrate our professionalism. All this comes down to the involvement of our employees, who are the company’s real wealth.
The Quality Management System is certified according to 2 standards: ISO 9001 for industrial applications and EN 9100 for aeronautical applications.
Our Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) policy
The health and safety of people and respect for our environment are among the priorities defined by the Management.
To this end, everyone in the company is responsible for complying with health and safety regulations and good environmental practices.
We are constantly thinking about ways to reduce our environmental footprint at all levels, for example by choosing local and responsible suppliers, by
Each employee plays his part in these efforts, especially the top management, who is directly involved in the process. There are three dedicated employees who work specifically on improving our HSE performance:
- An HSE facilitator monitors facilities and activities, relays information in the field, promotes good practices and carries out regulatory and sectoral monitoring.
- A continuous improvement facilitator analyses and improves workstations to make them more ergonomic (work posture, communication, visual management, etc.), to ensure the well-being at work of employees and to avoid musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
- A safety facilitator and trainer provides training on good health and safety practices on a daily basis, and integrates safety into specific training modules.
Some specific examples of improvements to workstation ergonomics
Epsilon Composite is committed to an ongoing approach to improving ergonomics to improve working conditions for employees, eliminate the risks of musculoskeletal disorders, and promote the installation of collective protective equipment (example: air intakes).
By following this approach, it has made it possible to identify and prioritise the workstations in need of improvement. Some recent examples include:
- Our cleaning, inspection and packaging stations have benefited from the installation of height-adjustable tables and stools, anti-fatigue mats and brighter lighting.
- Our packaging/shipping stations have benefited from improvements aimed at reducing the number of loading ports and facilitating the handling of large packages by installing handling equipment specifically adapted to the size and weight of the packaged parts.
- Those assembly stations requiring mallets to be used, which generate repetitive gestures and vibrations, have been replaced by a pneumatic press system for the installation of the end caps on our rollers.
These examples reflect the work carried out by HSE staff in collaboration with all the company’s employees. This highlights our dynamic approach, in line with our ongoing quest for improvement on a daily basis.
