Butachimie is a chemical company whose personnel work with complicated chemistry processes. We are proud of our work, but we are realistic — we know the risk our business runs with the safety and security of people and the environment.
More than just a rule or a goal, safety and security are core company values at Butachimie. Our organization and management policies are designed to manage risks and guarantee a safe and sustainable future. Personnel and facility safety and security are top priorities in our Growth Plan.
Butachimie’s safety culture
An uncompromising yet collaborative approach backed up with discipline and a demand for excellence are the values that have made Butachimie a success. They guarantee reliability and optimal safety and security.
Aware of our responsibilities, we work at every stage of our processes to continually improve safety, manage risks and heighten our reactivity.
Our chosen commitments go above and beyond the legal requirements for compliance and simply doing business, as testified to by our ISO certifications 9001, 14001 and 50001.
Ensuring people’s safety and security
Butachimie’s highest priority is people’s safety — namely, our employees and people living near the site. Our commitment to safety and security defines our organization and our management policies. Our proprietary integrated Safety Management System allows us to structure our approach to safety and security improvement and to heighten our reactivity.
Convinced that everyone has a role to play in safety and security, and believing strongly in personal accountability, we train our employees to prevent, reduce and manage risks. Discipline, precision, knowledge and compliance with agreed processes all add to our general efforts to improve safety and security.
Our central concern is reactivity. Employees trained in First Aid, others trained at two different levels as Rescue Teams and auxiliary firefighters support the on-site Specialized Fire Department.
Guaranteeing the safety and security of the facilities
Here at Butachimie, excellent performance dovetails with managing the complicated processes that we use. The commitment of our personnel to continuous process improvement at every stage of production is the best guarantee of safety and security.
Our engineering teams contribute to this goal every day by collecting essential data, analyzing them, and then creating modeling systems. The contribution of other industrial companies as well as feedback on tests and the sharing of good manufacturing practices feed our thoughts and practices.
Every working day is preparation for the triennial production shutdown, a decisive period for our processes, safety and security.
