Production

Risks that may arise from production are identified and evaluated by our experts at our business locations. We use our Major Hazards Review Programme (MHRP) to conduct a systematic assessment of process risks which might result in accidents or damage to property or to the environment. This programme is constantly being refined to ensure that we are in a position to react to new potential risks. We audited more plants during the reporting period, so that by the end of 2017, more than 95 percent of the relevant plants had been audited in accordance with the MHRP process. The aim is to prevent in particular accidents and subsequent business interruptions in one of our main plants or in our customers’ on-site plants.

We pay attention to production safety and storage safety from the initial planning stage of new plants. An individual safety plan is drawn up for each new plant. This plan is based on our own standards, the rules which apply in the relevant country and our customers’ guidelines. Environmental protection is also taken into consideration.

In the reporting year, around 1,360 environment, safety and health protection audits were carried out on our sites by us or by third parties. Our internal audits are conducted in accordance with the provisions of the international certification processes for quality and occupational health and safety, ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001.

Our plants supplying CO2 to the food industry for the production of carbonated drinks are also certified under the food safety system certification FSSC 22000.
