No new warnings
Our ambition is to be one of the leading companies in the petrochemical sector for Occupational Health & Safety and Process Safety. Safety, for us, is a non-negotiable premise. As part of our care for team members, we adopt safety practices to ensure the integrity and health of our teams. The Company prioritizes medical care in the workplace and facilitating access and health surveillance for workers.
Health & Safety are fundamental and non-negotiable values for Braskem. Our efforts have not been in vain: our results in terms of health and safety are among the best in the global chemical industry.
Our team members and contractors are trained to use our Intelius management system tools, created from international standards ISO 45001, ISO 14000, and ISO 9000. Applied to all company activities, the tools allow the identification and prevention of impacts on worker health and safety, provide for corporate audits and are tracked monthly through standardized KPIs.
Continuous work in the Safety area brings excellent results. Currently, the frequency rate of accidents with and without leave (considering team members and contractors) is only 0.95 – the best result of the last three years.
Education, knowledge management and practical actions in the field on the subject.
We began our human reliability journey in 2018, with the awareness of members and third parties about the concept, its importance, and how to act about this within the company. In 2021, about a thousand people, among them team members and contractors, who work directly at the plants to receive training about the topic, using tools such as workshops and videos, to practice human reliability culture in the day-to-day running of the plants.
In 2020, we began to look at the process of hiring third parties also from a health and safety point of view. Previously, these factors were considered, but not in an explicit and standardized manner, as we have now done. In 2021, we conducted the pilot of this evaluation, which has four main criteria: i) Rate of accidents with lost time; ii) Rate of accidents without lost time; iii) Rate of accidents with and without lost time; iv)
In 2021, we dedicated ourselves to building this program, with the help of a consultancy firm, which is expected to be launched in 2022. The idea is to cover various factors that influence the quality of life, such as obesity, smoking, and drug use. There will be four pillars of action in health: physical, emotional/mental, occupational, and social and family related.
