Despite the crisis, ERAMET is upholding its high standards on CSR.
Because its future, its performance, the value of its assets and the health of its people depend on it.
ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR SAFE HABITS
For critical activities (lifting, electrical risk, confined spaces, maintenance jobs, subcontractor management, work at heights, machine protection, etc.), the Group launched the Essential Requirements process, supported by internal communication campaigns. It sets down mandatory instructions for each critical activity. Rolled out over several years, this process will undergo a specific audit to measure application and compliance with rules and more than 2,000 employees will follow specific training.
DEFENDING PRODUCT CLASSIFICATION
For an objective assessment of products, ERAMET tasks independent organisations with studies to promote relevant risk management. This knowledge feeds into the assessment of chemical risks on the workstation and the safety data sheets that provide transparent information and traceability across the value chain.
ERAMET manages all the health, safety & environment (HSE) and CSR aspects of its projects to prevent risks and make sure actions are compliant on the ground. In 2016 this was the case for the modernisation programme at Setrag, COMILOG’s rail transport subsidiary in Gabon, when battery recycling activities were transferred from Valdi to Commentry, and in the implementation of the Lithium project on the Andes plateaux in northeast Argentina.
Our CSR* approach fully serves the improvement of the Group’s performance.
