Health and safety
Health and Safety are non-negotiable values for Braskem. No wonder, our health and safety results are among the best in the global chemical industry.
Our team members and contractors are trained to use the Intelius management system tools, created from international standards ISO 45001, ISO 14000 and ISO 9000. Applied to all company activities, the tools allow for the identification and prevention of impacts on worker health and safety, providing for corporate audits and tracked monthly by standardized KPIs.
Continuous work in the Safety area yields excellent results. Currently, the frequency rate of accidents with and without leave (including team members and partners) is only 0.95 – the best result for the last three years.
