Over the past years, occupational accident figures have dropped significantly at Evonik and are now at a good level. Although the trend is moving in the right direction, we decided to go a step further. We have established a uniform framework for our culture of safety in the Group.
Our new, Group-wide guiding principles call on everybody to contribute to the further improvement of our culture of safety. Our corporate initiative "Safety at Evonik" laid the necessary groundwork.
The core statement of our "Safety at Evonik" initiative reads: "Health and safety are at the very top of our agenda. We give these concerns top priority - even before the pursuit of sales and profit. For the sake of our employees and the local communities at all our locations worldwide." The guiding principles in safety cover all aspects of safety and provide directions for our future development:
The key statements of our new guiding principles in safety are:
All elements addressed in our guiding principles in safety are implemented in our management systems for occupational, plant, and transport safety as well as for the protection of our employees and businesses from criminal actions and the risks of doing business in an international environment. With this step, we also fulfill our self-obligation to comply with the Responsible Care initiative of the chemical industry.
Our latest Sustainability Report 2015 details our current strategies, initiatives, and performance in the individual areas of safety. Our performance is monitored with indicators and mandatory goals are in effect for essential parameters.
