High level of safety in production
Fault-free and high-tech
Safe and smooth operation is essential for Bayer MaterialScience, particularly with regard to the workflows, the well-being of the employees and local residents, and ultimately for business success. The objective is to ensure a high level of safety in all plants worldwide.
Experiments must be safe, such as these trials with polyurethane foam in Shanghai.
Be it in research, product development or production, employees at Bayer MaterialScience must have a mastery of complex production processes and facilities. Standardized and systematic procedures as well as compliance with global regulations help to enhance safety. Should incidents occur nevertheless, the company learns from them and takes the necessary steps to prevent any recurrences.
Just as important as the competence of the employees is the technology. Plants and processes are subject to continuous review and are kept up-to-date with state-of-the-art technology. One key to success is learning from others, and all facilities satisfy government requirements imposed on the operators of industrial plants.
Many raw materials, services, technical goods and other supplies have to be sourced from third parties. All parties concerned have to work hand in hand to ensure that deliveries comply with required specifications, standards and regulations.
Safety extends through delivery to the customer
Another key safety criterion besides modern plants and processes is the transport of products, particularly when it comes to hazardous goods. Bayer MaterialScience’s efforts here extend over the entire value-added chain, from the correct choice of logistics partners to the unloading of the goods with the customer. These efforts also include Bayer Group-wide measures for improving how goods are secured during transport.
