Making safety a priority
Gurit is committed to the prevention of accidents and the health & safety of our employees and customers. Across the organisation we have global standards and procedures, adapted for local and national health & safety legislations, as well as extensive data collection processes to help us track progress and ensure we are mitigating risks wherever possible.
Operational safety in our manufacturing facilities is covered by various Gurit-developed standards and training programmes, based on best practice, as well as recognised external standards such as the DSS Bradley Curve and ISO 45001 certification.
Chemical safety is an important consideration at all our facilities, in the development and manufacture of our products, and at customer sites. We have a comprehensive chemical safety management system, and continue to monitor the chemical safety and regulatory landscape to ensure our products not only perform effectively in the field, but can also be safely manufactured and used.
Please visit our Product Stewardship page for more information on the mitigation of the environmental and health & safety impacts of our products.
“Through the different exercises, discussions and role-plays that we carried out, we have been able to bring the theory of standards to the day-to-day operations of our factories. Our staff is showing tremendous ambition. I hope and strongly believe that, with continued effort and focus, we have a good chance of achieving our common goal. I am very satisfied with the result so far.”
Gurit monitors its safety performance internally on a monthly basis. We publish related figures annually as part of our Sustainability report which can be downloaded from www.www.gurit.com/sustainability
