MAINTAINING HIGHEST STANDARDS FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY, AND RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Actelion is committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for employees, and to preserving and protecting the environment. Health, safety and environmental matters are handled at Actelion with the same sense of responsibility as issues concerning quality and cost-efficiency. This is done for example by continually adapting equipment to the most recent standards, or developing new innovative processes. Furthermore, all employees are personally responsible for health, safety and the environment at the workplace to the full extent required by their duties, and to the best of their knowledge, ability and experience.

Health and safety
Health and safety are key issues for Actelion, which aims to avoid accidents and occupational diseases, and to promote the health and well-being of employees. Actelion is committed to providing to its employees and visitors with a safe environment in which to work and study. Safety and the protection of health are therefore an integral part of every employee’s function, and are achieved through proper engineering, education, training, use of appropriate personal protective equipment, and compliance with relevant safety directives, rules, and regulations.

Environment
Careful use of resources with minimal environmental impact is an important factor in sustainable development. Reflecting its commitment to sustainability, Actelion continuously strives to reduce its consumption of materials and energy, and to cut the quantities of waste and emissions it generates, for example by strictly separating and recycling where possible.
