BME Health and Safety Compass
To support you in working as healthy and safely as possible, we developed the Health & Safety Compass program. Containing practical roadmaps, behavioral guidelines and other useful information to help develop a healthy and safe work environment for everyone.
THINK FIRST, BEHAVE SAFE
Supported by the pay-off “Think first, behave safe”, the Compass program guides us all in maintaining our physical health. To minimize the risk of accidents and related injuries when conducting our day-to-day business and improving sustainable employability.
We strongly believe a healthy and safe work environment stimulates healthy and safe behavior.

SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY WITHIN BME GROUP
IT IS THE DUTY OF EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US
“Regardless of your title or position, it is the responsibility and duty of all of us to keep our customers, our contractors, our suppliers, our visitors, ourselves and all our colleagues safe.
The Compass Safety Program and Approach are not meant to be a top-down instruction. It is a real joint effort to keep all of us safe when working at our locations and when you are underway for your work. Therefore, we encourage you to carefully observe and speak to colleagues when needed. Raise any concerns about safety and also make suggestions to improve our safety environment and performance.
I am asking for a real commitment from all of you to play your role in keeping yourself and other people safe. Thank you for taking our Health & Safety Guidelines and the Compass Safety Program as seriously as I do.
When ‘we think first and behave safe’, we are making our company safer, stronger and healthier.”

To comply to the local safety guidelines all our colleagues are informed, educated and trained in our safety guidelines, as part of their induction program as well as annually during employment.
CLEANLINESS AND TIDINESS
All working areas must be clean and organized in order to be more efficient, reduce stress for colleagues, deliver higher quality of work and reduce the risk of injuries and accidents.
All contractors, customers, visitors and suppliers visiting our locations need to comply to our Health & Safety Guidelines. It is our duty to assure they are well informed, educated and/or trained in these guidelines.
It is essential that within all work areas and/or workstations relevant guidelines are available and, when necessary, clearly visible. To enable a safe entry to the work area and/or workstation at all times.
We are committed to provide all employees with a healthy and comfortable work environment by identifying and correcting ergonomic risk factors. And by following simple rules on ergonomic work behavior.
