Health, safety and security

The handling of large volumes of valuable and potentially hazardous materials calls for responsible and safe operations. We strive for operational excellence and exemplary HSSE performance. We aim to safeguard the people who work with us and the communities we operate in, through rigorous compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

We have comprehensive Health, Safety, Security & Environment (HSSE) guidelines. Targets are set and the performance is benchmarked to achieve continuous improvement. 

Health and Safety

We train and educate our employees so we can conduct our business activities in a safe, healthy and environment-friendly manner. New employees as well as contractors and visitors are thoroughly instructed in matters of HSSE before taking up their work or their visit.

Everyone looks out for each other, no matter who they work for. We focus on performance that earns us the trust and confidence of our customers, partners, and the community at large.

  • We value the health and safety of people and the environment above all else.
  • We follow a zero-tolerance policy for safety breaches.
  • We plan and train for safety. 
  • Management at all levels is accountable for safety and leads by example. 
  • Everyone has the right to stop any unsafe work.
  • Safe behavior is recognised, acknowledged and reinforced.
  • Performance is monitored with regular integrated audits.
  • We believe all incidents can be prevented.

Security

Many of our facilities store or handle hazardous products. To prevent theft, vandalism and even terrorism we continuously identify and analyze all potential security threats.

Physically we protect our sites through a combination of preventative measures such as fencing, surveillance and access-control systems. We also train all personnel including third party on relevant safety and security protocols.

We place high value on secure data and the protection of personal data – regardless of whether it is customer, supplier or employee data, or in which country the data are used.  It is our duty to continuously monitor and improve our risk management and security measures.
