Brenntag Northeast: Improved safety culture through employees committee

Bright Yellow Hardhats - closeup

At Brenntag Northeast in the USA, representatives from almost every company division founded a committee to work together to achieve maximum safety in the working environment. In an exemplary manner, this group of employees has repeatedly succeeded in raising their colleagues’ awareness of safety issues by means of a newsletter and clever ideas and campaigns, bringing room for improvement to their attention and improving the safety processes and infrastructure at the Brenntag Northeast sites.

There are now also regular warehouse inspections conducted by a multi-departmental group of employees (”Management by Walking Around”): thanks to their impartiality, these employees can spot hazard sources that are otherwise easily overlooked in day-to-day work.
