Our goal is to become the safest chemical distributor worldwide. Two of our sites – Zgierz and Jankowice have made a major contribution to this aim by having no Lost Time Injury incidents for five and ten years respectively. “Safety is more than a set of rules”, says Jerzy Jasiński, Regional President for Central and Eastern Europe. This result is the great achievement of the 170 workers at these two sites, who are exposed to various types of hazardous situations on a daily basis. It is their awareness and sensible approach to work that delivers the feeling of safety in this working environment.
The sites in Zgierz and Jankowice have been awarded Safety First prizes many times in recent years as they have set safety requirements that go far beyond national requirements.
Implementing corporate guidelines and adhering to applicable rules and regulations have made it possible to achieve such good results. As Tomasz Gardocki, Regional Operations Director Central and Eastern Europe, says: “Having zero injuries should be our goal not just for ten years but forever!” Safety is part of our corporate strategy. Worldwide, Brenntag operates in line with the “Safety First” principle and has implemented a global strategy in the areas of health and safety and protection of the environment (HSE strategy). Brenntag is committed to the highest standards in the industry and adopts policies which in many countries far exceed statutory requirements.
