The management at the Clariant locations conduct regular safety and health trainings within the scope of AvoidingAccidents@Clariant and other, local initiatives. Clariant operated about 121 production facilities worldwide in 2016, of which 87 had a committee dealing with safety issues. The remaining facilities either did not establish such a committee because of their small number of employees, or they deal with safety issues in other appropriate panels. This means that 85% of staff employed per capita in production are represented by a safety committee. Taking the workforce as a whole (production, procurement, sales, management), 80% of staff per capita are also represented. At Clariant, safety issues are also addressed in committees that do not primarily deal with this topic.
