This topic refers to our internal focus, management and performance for the safety of our employees.
Chemical manufacturing is a specialized process involving the handling and storage of large volumes
of chemical substances of varying hazardous natures, synthesis processes requiring complex machinery
often using high temperatures and pressure, and waste streams that require particular treatment before
being able to be discharges back into the environment.
Archroma has developed 12 “Life Saving” rules as a general guideline, as we are all responsible for safety,
each employee is trained on these rules and gives a signed commitment to ensure they are followed.
Accountability for occupational safety lies with the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and the Global Safety,
Health and Environment (SHE) manager. Each site manager has a zero Lost Time Accident (LTA) and
Occupational Incident (OI) target. This has resulted in the overall Total Reportable Rate (TRR) of
0.47 incidents measured per 200 000 hours worked for the reporting period. This shows a slight improvement
over the previous reporting period (FY2017 TRR 0.5). This is well below the U.S. National Safety Council
chemical manufacturing industry average of 2.0 for 2017. The TRR target for FY2023 is less than 0.2
incidents per 200 000 hours worked.
