Health and Safety
At Aleris we care deeply about the safety of our employees. Our most critical priority is our commitment to do our best to ensure every employee leaves work each day and returns to his or her loved ones without an injury. To drive safety excellence, Aleris has implemented a comprehensive Health and Safety system that facilitates a strong focus on safe work processes and proactive efforts to remove unsafe work conditions and practices. This system has led to improvement in our injury rates.
As we continue to drive toward our company goal of zero injuries, we are working hard to build a safety culture that aligns the focus of our global operations with a commitment to working safely. The company regularly surveys employees to gauge the strength of the Aleris safety culture, and leaders are held accountable for making adjustments that will address gaps. Manufacturing sites that achieve critical safety milestones are also recognized annually with the CEO safety award.
Over the past several years, we’ve all worked hard to strengthen our focus on safety at Aleris, and we should be proud of how far we’ve come. We’ve seen greater acceptance of our safety standards, more focus on safe work processes, and more hands-on efforts to remove unsafe work conditions and practices.
