The Group will continue to make safety at work for its 26,000 employees and contractors on its sites, an absolute priority. Although the Group's performance as measured by the frequency rate of accidents with lost time places it among the best companies in its sector, Solvay will take a further step by halving the number of accidents recorded on its sites.

To reach this ambitious objective, Solvay plan to manage safety in a responsible way, based on people involvement with the internal Safety Excellence Program, and a continuous improvement plan.

“We manage products and processes that could be harmful. We must therefore make sure that the way we handle these products is safe, and naturally our first priority is the safety of our people."
