Raising the awareness of our “Safety First” approach is the basis of the trust we want to strengthen among our colleagues, partners, and within the local community. Our goal is to maintain a stable and high standard safety culture as well as continuously develop and boost up the safety consciousness of our employees.
Each of our employees has a responsibility for maintaining safe working conditions and minimizing risks.
At the Company level, we develop and operate a non-health hazardous HSE system for creating safe working conditions.
Our HSE Department has the highly qualified and experienced staff to ensure compliance with the safety, occupational health, and environmental requirements required in the chemical industry. In our plants, trained HSE coordinators help to comply with the regulations and we ensure that their professional knowledge is kept up to date with regular training.
In addition, the Central HSE Committee has been operating since 2017 with the aim of facilitating the flow of HSE information within the organization, informing senior management on HSE problems at the Company level, and preparing and supporting decisions.
During the preparation phase of our new investments, stakeholders are always fully informed about the safe operation of the new facility. Knowledge of the properties of our chemicals is also a basic requirement for safety. This is served by the REACH database, which contains regulations related to the safe handling of chemical substances and it is available to all employees within the Company.
In addition to the safety of our colleagues, we pay special attention to the safety of contractors’ and suppliers’ employees who work on our site. Their activities are strictly controlled and before the start of the work, the construction companies shall participate in safety training where they learn about the Company’s HSE rules, local conditions, risks, and protection regulations. In addition, those who work at our Company site shall also undergo a preliminary medical examination at our occupational health service provider operating on our site.
Our work safety and health performance are analysed through regular external and internal audits and by means of our safety statistics. Based on the results, we launch campaigns in the areas to be developed.
As a result of the commitment of our colleagues and leadership, our occupational safety statistics are outstanding relative to companies in the region.
