Comprehensive corporate policy
Safety is part of Covestro's DNA
Covestro wants to push the boundaries of what‘s possible in the chemical industry. The company has established comprehensive guidelines for achieving its ambitious goals. These relate to four key topics: health, safety, environment, and quality (HSEQ).
All of our employees – including the Executive Board and site management – are committed to drive continuous improvement and to achieve excellence in the HSEQ areas. Covestro considers the guidelines as an important building block in reaching its corporate goals. Adherence to processes is regularly verified through internal and external audits.
Covestro improves the quality of the health benefits provided for employees regularly, while encouraging awareness of healthy lifestyles. The company also sets itself high standards with regard to its own products and processes, which should not pose a risk to health at any time.
The comprehensive safety management and the distinct safety culture are cornerstones of Covestro's corporate responsibility. Covestro distinguishs three main fields: personal safety, process safety and product safety. The company strives to reduce the total number of recordable incidents to zero, grant the secure and reliable operation of its plants, and ensure the safe use of its products at all times.
