Our HS Culture
Safety in the workplace is a fundamental value for us. Safety begins with our workers and returns to them as the final objective of the actions we implement for the overall risk mitigation and management.
We believe that injuries and work-related illnesses can be prevented. In achieving our goal of ‘Zero Harm' the main attitude required to our managers is the leadership through visible and exemplary behaviour, proactive commitment, and involvement of employees.
