Industrial safety – a comprehensive program which is bearing its fruit
Known as “Safety in Action”, the industrial safety program of the Arkema group has been deployed around the world. It is based on three complementary components: technical, organizational and human.
The Arkema group is convinced that its heightened performance in industrial safety is closely related to the establishment of a safety culture common to the entire group.
The “Safety in Action” program transforms this conviction into concrete commitments. It involves every Group site and employee around the world. The areas of action mainly revolve around the prevention of major industrial risks (technical component), the efficiency of safety management systems (organizational component) and safety at the workstation (human component).
