Industrial safety – a comprehensive program which is bearing its fruit

Safety is central to the Group’s objectives in conducting its operations.The industrial safety monitoring is based on three complementary components: technical, organizational and human.

The Arkema group decided to realise its sustainable development commitments by setting out four 2025 safety objectives primarily translating its resolve to improve its safety performance and consolidate its operational excellence. These objectives are as follows:


  • reduce the total recordable injury rate (TRIR) to below 1.2 by 2025 (see below);


  • extend the peer observation program to 100% of sites by 2025; and


  • audit 100% of sites in accordance with the Arkema Integrated Management System (AIMS) by 2025.


  • reduction of the process safety evenement rate (PSER) to a level below 3.

Safety indicators show improvement

Thanks to its efforts to improve safety, the Arkema group has succeeded in reducing the frequency of accidents at its facilities.

Total Recordable Incident Rate

In 2019, the total recordable injury rate (TRIR) was 1.4. This puts the Group among the best in its sector and confirms the very strong safety improvement dynamic underway in recent years, driven largely by firm employee commitment.

The Group’s 2025 target is to achieve a total recordable injury rate (TRIR) below 1.2.
