Health and Safety

We commit to every person who joins our team. That’s why we create work environments that promote safety. We know it’s a two-way street: boosting our employees’ well-being starts with knowing how to listen to them and taking new measures.

Workplace health and safety are key to achieving operational excellence. This involves working toward implementing measures to prevent occupational hazards. There are two basic principles that form the backbone of all the other elements: Target Zero, or zero workplace victims and the assurance that all accidents can be prevented with the right measures.
