Managing Safety and Environmental Performance
In line with our group policies on Corporate Social Responsibility we put strong emphasis on our safety, health and environmental responsibilities and have a solid record of continuous improvement in all areas of our SHE performance.
We work closely with regulatory authorities to ensure that we continue to meet or exceed health and safety legal requirements. Our proactive programme includes risk assessments; regular auditing, improved communication and regular monitoring. Continued and ongoing reduction in the number of accidents and injuries to employees mean that our performance in this area is better than average for the chemical industry.
Synthomer is also acutely aware of its environmental responsibilities, and substantial investment has been made in our plant and production facilities and we will continue to do so. Environmental performance indicators show significant decreases in the Company’s environmental burden in all areas: energy consumption; emissions to air; water usage; hazardous waste; and non-hazardous waste. Our objective is to keep driving down these safety and environmental indicators, year on year.
