Global Health and Safety Policy

In Topsoe we are committed to keeping our employees safe and healthy by eliminating risks and accidents, and we take care of their daily and long term well-being by caring for their physical and mental health. Caring for people is an integral part of our DNA and it is part of what makes Topsoe a good place to work and have worked.

We have an ambition to eliminate Lost Time Accidents by continuously working with our safety culture and continuously improving our working environment. Our focal point is to make safety everybody’s matter and stimulate our colleague’s attitude towards safety. All Topsoe employees have the obligation to take action if they encounter risks or threats, and they have full backing from the management to do so. No other task is important enough to allow any form of safety breach.

We also have an ambition to develop and ensure a tolerant, respectful, well-balanced and healthy working environment. We work hard to provide surroundings, tools and support that will positively impact our colleagues’ physical and mental health in order to increase employee well-being and prevent work-related illness.
