Health and safety are our main priorities in the development and manufacturing of our products. Given that our core business involves the handling of hazardous chemicals and machinery, it is of crucial importance that our employees and contract workers, as well as people living in the neighborhood, always remain safe.
With regard to safety, we aim to be among the best in class. We want our employees and contract workers to return home from work safely, every day. A safe work environment can be achieved by managing risks well. On the one hand, this is done by means of process management (technologies and systems) and, on the other hand, by means of social management (people and behavior). This mainly relates to conscious behavior, a well-functioning dialogue between collaborative parties, and compliance with relevant procedures. We are striving for what we call a ‘proactive safety culture’ within our organization. However, we are not there yet. To achieve our goal, we have set up various programs that address both labor safety and process safety.
In addition, we also pay a lot of attention to the general health of our employees.
