Health & Safety

We are committed to minimise risk for our people, the environment, adjacent communities and other stakeholders through the promotion of a strong culture of health and safety and of environmental protection. We will not compromise on these important matters. Paying attention to these issues makes for a better workplace and shows our concern for one another, our business partners and the environment. A safe and healthy workplace also can increase our productivity, help us to focus our energies on meeting customer needs, provide engineering advantage and move the company forward.

To support these commitments, IMI businesses are required to manage their activities,and employees are expected to act, as far as reasonably practicable, to ensure that we will:
  • At a minimum meet or exceed all health, safety and environmental laws and regulations in the countries where we operate, and the specific health, safety and environmental rules, requirements and procedures of IMI and each of our companies.

  • As appropriate, communicate with relevant regulatory officials, trade associations and industry groups regarding IMI’s commitment to these issues.

  • Ensure that all employees understand their responsibilities for and ways to improve performance related to health, safety and environmental protection.

  • Align company operations with good practices in workplace health, safety and environmental protection.

  • Identify and address risks in our industrial operations and associated hazards to provide safe working conditions and to prevent pollution.

  • Support risk management by monitoring work-related near misses, investigating root causes of any accident or near miss, minimising related hazards and finding better ways to reduce the number and severity of personal accidents and environmental incidents.

  • Ensure that the health, safety and environmental impacts of our products and processes are reduced to a minimum, and work with our customers and suppliers to achieve improved performance on shared objectives.

  • Use opportunities from health, safety and environmental improvements in products and processes for wider business benefits, such as optimising energy and other resource-use efficiency, particularly with regard to CO2 emissions.
