Site safety

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Standardised risk review for sites and definition of control mechanisms to minimise these risks to the greatest possible extent (Major Hazards Review Programme, MHRP)

 

 

Long-term goal

 

 

67% of sites concerned certified in line with MHRP by the end of 2012

Transport safety

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Transport safety initiative

  • Adoption of all local and global minimum operating standards for transport
  • Integration of transport standards in a global database
  • Training on revised standards for employees and transport contractors
  • Audits to ensure compliance with operating standards
  • Global implementation of new behavioural transport safety driver training programme (ActSafe for Drivers)

 

 

2012-2015

 

 

  • 40 transport auditors trained
  • More than 20% of Linde and contractor drivers worldwide trained in pilot projects from 2009-2012
