How can we look out for each other and keep each other safe?

We know from experience that certain behaviours help us work more safely. For Aliaxis, we have now defined 3 safety behaviours that are essential to keep us safe and will serve as a guiding principle in everything we do:

  • Think: Think about every task with safety in mind. When we carry out a job, the first question we ask is: "How can we do this safely?" We do not hurry when safety is at stake. 
  • Talk: Talk about unsafe and safe situations. Every activity needs to be 100% safe, not 99.9%. There should be no exceptions. No "just this time". So let's talk to each other about how to make everything as safe as possible.  
  • Act: Act and intervene in unsafe situations. If something unsafe is happening, you must stop it. This is fundamental. Whenever you experience a hazard or a near-miss, you take the time to report it. You could prevent a serious injury.
