Occupational health and safety

The health and safety of those working for us, and those affected by our activities, is our first and most important responsibility.

We work to promote and improve the health of the company’s workforce, contractors and the communities in which we operate. We strive to provide a workplace where people can work without being injured and operate our installations without harm to neighboring communities. 

Our approach to improving safety performance is based on risk management, leadership qualities and shop floor engagement. To avoid serious injuries, we have implemented several control systems, and our fatality prevention protocols emphasize seven topics: 

  • Energy isolation
  • Fall prevention
  • Mobile equipment 
  • Overhead cranes  
  • Confined space entry 
  • Molten metal safety
  • Contractor management 

Healthy and safe work conditions are recognized as a human right and addressed by the International Labour Organization (ILO), the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the World Health Organization (WHO).
