Safety at the heart
Umicore puts people safety at the heart of its concerns and values. I’ve been with Umicore for 15 years and gained insights into different national cultures and a range of different jobs. But whether in Germany, Liechtenstein or France, in very different worlds, the message remains the same: "people safety first."
And they’re not just empty words. This topic influences our thinking and decision-making whenever there is a managerial decision to be taken or an investment to be made, in each discussion between colleagues.
Our lives and our health are precious and Umicore sets out to do everything in its power to protect them in our working environment. Yes, I feel safe working at Umicore and try to make sure that each of my colleagues feels the same. This is an everyday concern for each and every one of us. Without scaremongering, at Umicore we learn together that the best way of managing a risk is to be aware of it in the first place.
