Safety management

Occupational health and safety

The safety and health of our employees are of utmost importance. To guarantee protection in the workplace and safety at our sites and their environments, high standards apply for the CHT Group.

Requested prevention and information

In 2022, an international team from the field of occupational safety has once again addressed the definition and calculation of occupational accidents and defined the LTIFR method for recording and calculating the accident rate. All occupational accidents with an absence of at least one day are taken into account here. The starting year for the new calculation was defined as 2021 with an LTIFR of 10.2. By 2025, the LTIFR rate* is to be reduced by > 10 %. In 2023, the LTIFR rate was reduced further, resulting in a value of 8.8 (- 4.3 % vs. 2022).

The nature of the injuries was predominantly non-chemical, non-industry-specific injuries such as bruises, sprains, cuts and the like.

There were no workplace-related fatalities during the 2023 reporting period. The following graphs show occupational injuries to CHT employees by region.

*The calculation is based on the LTIFR method: Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate = (number of registered accidents with lost days > > 1 x 1,000,000 / number of hours actually worked). Hours worked are recorded globally in Workday and amounted to 3,740,559 hours in 2023.

On the base of this development, we are going to increase our international measures for occupational health and safety and further promote our staff’s training in this field. The long-term goal of the CHT Group is to continue to reduce the number of incidents in the workplace and to halve absences from work worldwide by 2025.

Plant safety

CHT products are manufactured in modern chemical plants which are state-of-the-art in terms of safety and control. When manufacturing our products, we respect the prerequisites for quality, the environmental protection, occupational health and safety as well as the energy-efficient use of our plants. To ensure these requirements are met, we maintain an integrated management system that is already fully certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and ISO 50001 at various sites.

In case of incidents in plant safety, appropriate corrective actions were initiated immediately. This showed that the procedures for alert and emergency response and the cooperation with authorities and public institutions as well as the fire departments function reliably.
