At the BASF Antwerpen production site, safety is without doubt top priority. Employees, partners, contractors, visitors ... BASF includes everyone in its safety policy.
Preventing accidents is our main priority. There are five things we keep in mind to ensure continuous improvement.
The emphasis is on the prevention of incidents. If an incident does occur, the response must be as fast and efficiently as possible, using people with the right training and education and with the best tools. Our intervention service meets all these requirements. It also makes its knowledge and equipment available to public emergency services upon request.
Traffic safety is very important to us. On average, 1 in 200 employees a year is involved in an accident while driving to or from work. We promote traffic safety by means of awareness and information campaigns. We also encourage our employees to use the BASF bus to commute to work. Our incidence numbers show that this is still the safest way to commute to work.
