Safety, Health and Environment
It is Chemetall‘s objective to achieve the highest standards in safety, health and environment protection in everything we do, specifically with regard to our customers, our employees and facilities worldwide.
Chemetall recognizes that our employees are our most important assets, and we take measures to ensure their safety at work. Therefore, we have a goal of zero incidents, as we believe that all work-related injuries and illnesses are preventable. In order to reach this goal Chemetall is constantly striving to develop best practices for its application of technology and engineering as well as organization, processes and procedures undertaken by our trained personnel.
Furthermore for a safe workplace Chemetall also participates in Rockwood’s program „We Care: Work safely - go home safely“. As we are aware that without a strong and positive safety culture the goal of zero accidents and incidents could not be reached, we have asked all employees to take ownership of in this initiative with senior management leading by example.
Chemetall is aware of its obligation to preserve the environment. Each operation complies with relevant environmental laws and regulations. We focus on how we can make our products smarter, cleaner and greener, and we also focus on our customers and work to develop and deliver environmentally responsible products, technologies and solutions to meet their needs. It is good to know that for our customers, employees and other stakeholders that going beyond compliance is a given for us. Chemetall makes sure that we have minimal impact the local environment where we operate. Therefore, we reduce greenhouse emissions and our direct and indirect energy use and we make every effort to minimize the use of water by recycling and water reduction opportunities.
