Examples of actions supporting product guarantee

Specific consciousness-raising campaigns have been organised in Tereos sites around the world, including “Risco Zero” in Brazil and “Safety and Me” in Europe.
At Tereos, we are determined to reinforce Safety. We all need to know that all is being done to make our work environment a safe one in our company.
In the spirit of One Tereos, we will aim higher, together, by adopting common safety standards and best shared practices. It is also important to look at a sustainable future. Because there is no long-term vision if we do not prioritize Safety.
It’s important to take our safety seriously at all times: at home, in transport and, of course, at work. With your managers, your safety officers, with your colleagues: make sure that you uphold safety in everything you do.
That’s why, the Group organized every year a Safety Day dedicated to raising awareness of health and safety issues within Tereos Group worldwide.
As part of our transformation dynamics under your single banner One Tereos, the Group decided to place Health & Safety as a corporate priority, as a key element of our industrial excellence. Safety is also one of the pillars from Ambitions 2022, launched mi-2018.
Our aim to reach zero accidents. We will achieve it by acting together
