Goals & Outlook
Status of Goals set in 2015/2016
Reduce number of safety and environmentally relevant incidents per million hours worked to below 0.7
Corporate entity: Groupwide
In 2018, the number of safety-related and environmentally relevant incidents per million hours worked was still greater than the 2020 target. As of 2019, Wacker Chemie AG is classifying relevant incidents as per the updated Cefic or VCI definition. This will lower individual trigger thresholds and thus make smaller incidents relevant as well. Nonetheless, the set corporate goal of an incident rate of less than 0.7 per million hours worked by 2020 remains unchanged.
Experts in explosion protection from all over the Group will be sharing their knowledge and experience and discussing improvements during 2019. In this regard, we will be providing additional support in the form of workshops in Asia and the Americas.
