2014 Imerys Refractory Minerals’ Safety Challenge

The 2014 winner of the Imerys Refractory “Safety Challenge” is…Imerys Refractory Minerals Glomel team.
Every year each of our production sites participate in the Safety Challenge which is built on three pillars: Safety Results, Safety Management Systems and Safety Preventive Actions.

This years’ winning team implemented an efficient safety management system thanks to the commitment and implication of all operators. Additionally, the Glomel crew shared the largest number of safety actions with the Imerys Refractory Minerals’ division worldwide.

It is an encouraging example of highlighting development and sharing of best practices.
