The men and women in our company are our most precious asset. In this area, we can be proud of what we have achieved to protect the Health and Safety of our employees. However, any accident is one too many – our goal is ZERO. This means that we must not tolerate anything that could compromise Safety. There are simple individual and collective commitments we can make: “If we can’t do a job safely, then we don’t do it”. “If we see someone taking risks, we have the power and the duty to speak up and take action”.
These individual and collective commitments help to strengthen the first pillar of Safety: the organisation’s Safety Culture. At the same time, we must continue to strengthen technical safety via the golden rules and the safety management system as part of routine prevention activities (induction, training, inspection, safety quarter-hour, reporting of near-misses and dangerous situations, post-accident investigation, etc.).
