Uniform Safety Culture Worldwide

As an employer, it is ALTANA’s duty to protect its more than 6,000 employees from dangers and to offer them safety at the workplace. The basis for the technical and organizational measures we implement are the laws valid in the region where the respective site is located.

Our uniform safety culture is oriented to the provisions of the internationally recognized OHSAS 18001 guideline. Many companies have their safety management system certified accordingly. In 2015, ELANTAS Europe had this done for its three Italian sites in Ascoli, Collecchio, and Quattordio.

In the year under review, 40 percent of all of ALTANA’s sites were certified in accordance with OHSAS 18001 (in detail: BYK: 33 percent, ECKART: 38 percent, ELANTAS: 80 percent, ACTEGA: 17 percent).
