Essentra believes that no-one who comes into contact with our work activities should suffer any harm as a result - we are therefore committed to achieving the highest standards of health and safety. This commitment includes all our employees and extends to any other person affected by the group's activities, including temporary workers, contractors, customers, suppliers and visitors.
Essentra operates a tiered approach to health and safety management designed to meet and support the requirements of the current Essentra Group HS&E Strategy and this policy:
Tier 1: Group / Tier 2: Regional / Tier 3: Country / Tier 4: Site
The Essentra Group, each region and each site will establish health and safety objectives and maintain appropriate plans designed to sustain and improve upon health and safety management and performance. Health and safety projects and initiatives shall receive at least equal priority with other operational, manufacturing and quality related projects and be included, as appropriate, in business strategic planning and annual budgeting process.
The Chief Executive, supported by the Group Human Resources Director, is responsible for the Essentra Group health and safety programme. The Regional Managing Directors/Presidents, supported by the Regional Operations Directors/VPs, are responsible for the Essentra Regional health and safety programmes. These responsibilities include ensuring sufficient resources are made available to deliver the strategy, policy commitments and associated health and safety programmes.
This policy will be displayed at all Essentra locations and made available to interested parties on the company website and on request. It will be reviewed at least annually to ensure it remains consistent with the Essentra Group health and safety strategy, legislation and Essentra organisational changes. When appropriate it will be updated and re-issued to the business.
