Safeguarding our employees’ health and safety is our top priority. Brenntag raises its employees’ awareness of these issues, provides them with related training and implements any measures necessary to avoid accidents and incidents. Regular training is an important element of Brenntag’s occupational safety culture.
This ranges from safety instruction for new employees to comprehensive training measures specially tailored for the work situation and the risk potential of occupational groups or individual employees. Training is given by internal HSE managers and also by external experts, both in the form of face-to-face events as well as digitally. Brenntag is also continuously investing in its equipment and infrastructure so as to optimize plant safety and work processes at its locations and thus further minimize safety risks and sources of accidents.
The ongoing process of improvement has enabled us to continuously reduce the number of reportable industrial accidents within the Group.
