Global Health and Safety Policy

Global Health and Safety Policy

At Topsoe, caring for people is an integral part of our values and of our vision of Zero Harm. We are committed to continuously preventing and reducing the risk of injuries or illness to people; you, me, all our colleagues, contractors and the people we work with outside Topsoe.
Zero Harm is a vision we all share, and everyone at Topsoe must take ownership through action in their daily work and through long-term planning. We consider mental health and well-being to be as important as physical health and safety.
