Health and Safety

We work proactively to live up to our responsibility and ensure the safety and health of our employees and customers.

Our focus is on bringing down the statistics to zero accidents. In 2015, the number of accidents was lower than ever; only 1.7 per 1 million working hours.

Training programmes are developed over the years, and in 2015, all Hempel factory employees underwent training in Personal Protection Equipment and Static Electricity, which is the most common cause of fires in the coatings industry.

Our HSE Policy ensures that our businesses and operations comply with international and local regulations – and our own high internal standards.

We regularly conduct internal audits that cover every aspect of our operations to ensure that all Hempel offices and places of work meet our high standards.

Nine Hempel sites are covered by a global OHSAS 18001 certification.
