A proactive occupational health policy
Arkema’s occupational health policy has three main strands:
- Enhancing wellness. We have set up awareness programs and training courses on health and wellness in the workplace, covering aspects such as sleep, diet and psychosocialmental health risks.
In 2008 a “No drugs, no alcohol” initiative was launched for all employees.
In the United States, the company runs sessions for its employees on obesity, smoking, exercise and food quality.
- Preventing risk at the workstation. We constantly strive to incorporate ergonomic features into the design of new facilities and to adapt existing working environments. We are also developing tools to measure and assess health hazards at the workstation.
- Preventing addiction and mental health risks. Our awareness and information initiatives are led by occupational health physicians and target all Group employees.
The Group created a pioneering Central Stress Observatory seven years ago, responsible for identifying risk situations at the company’s French sites.
A survey of all our employees around the world shows their strong engagement in the Arkema Group
As part of its proactive continuous improvement drive, Arkema launched in early 2021 “ARKEMA CARES 2021”, its first in-house globally harmonized engagement survey which involved over 85% of its employees.
This initiative has helped gauge the level of employee engagement in their activities at the service of the Company as well as their collective potential to play a role in Arkema’s sustainable growth ambition.
With 82% of employees stating their full engagement, this survey confirms the strong mobilization of the Group’s men and women in aiding its growth.
Moreover, with a very high NPS (Net Promoter Score) of 24, the majority of employees would recommend working for Arkema to their friends and family.
Promoting operational excellence from the field
Who better than a plant's employees to identify the strengths and weaknesses in its organization?
With that in mind, we run an operational excellence program to gather ideas and avenues for optimization from the people in the field. Layout, safety, ergonomics and working conditions are all areas in which everyone can contribute, based on intimate knowledge of their field and their occupation.
