Behavior-Based Safety

Contractor staff and hired personnel will be issued with an

access badge after familiarizing themselves with the safety
instructions and the Life-Saving Rules. Visitors are made
known in advance and must be accompanied by a host
during their visit. Access badges need to be clearly visible
at all times.

People safety at AkzoNobel is emphasized through our

approach to the Behavior-Based Safety process. Employees
regularly observe their own behavior and that of visitors in
order to discuss and correct at risk situations, should
they arise.
