We are developing a proactive health and safety culture across all levels of our business and our value chain. While we have made good progress since 2008, we will continuously improve our performance with the ultimate aim of achieving an incident-free workplace.

    With Safer Together, Imerys ‘s Health and Safety program and culture, we’re actively encouraging our people to be positive about health and safety, to take responsibility for their choices, to look out for each other and to always place health and safety above all else.
