Safety always comes first

Comprehensive safety management minimizes risks

As an international specialty chemicals group, LANXESS considers safety a top priority. The company’s success depends fundamentally on its plants running smoothly, cost-effectively and in full compliance with legal requirements. All business units and employees play their part in identifying risks early on and eliminating potential hazards for people and the environment. They are supported in this task by the group-wide integrated HSEQ management system. All LANXESS sites operate to extremely high health & safety and environmental standards.

Strict checks and focused education
The diversity of LANXESS’s product portfolio necessitates the use of many chemical and technical processes. Uniformly high standards for planning, constructing and operating facilities are applied to ensure the maximum possible process and plant safety. A comprehensive safety management system (SMS) sets out regulations governing all safety-relevant processes at production plants. Regular checks and intensive staff education and training programs ensure that the SMS is implemented consistently and help to prevent accidents.

Careful auditing prior to acquisitions
Safety is also of paramount importance in acquisition projects. A technical due diligence audit designed to identify potential risks is always conducted alongside the standard economic review during the preliminary stages. LANXESS uses comprehensive gap analyses to determine how best to resolve any safety shortcomings and implement the company’s demanding HSEQ standards in good time.
