WORKPLACE HEALTH AND SAFETY
Odebrecht’s Environment policy is integrated with Workplace Health and Safety to maintain a healthy, motivating environment, which is essential to people’s professional and personal growth and fulfillment.
The underlying principle is that each individual is subject to his or her own actions. Therefore, ensuring their personal health and safety is the basic responsibility of each and every member of the Odebrecht Group.
However, their leaders are entrusted with these responsibilities in the businesses for which they are responsible, and take a proactive, educational and motivating stance. Each leader has a duty to create the conditions enabling team members and partners to develop their own health, as well as to maintain working conditions that prevent risks to personal safety.
At Construtora Norberto Odebrecht and Braskem, all workplace health, safety and environment programs are integrated and set clear goals and objectives for each project or unit.

In 2006, Braskem consolidated its health, safety and environment practices (SSMA) under the “Constant Excellence in SSMA” program with a view to becoming a global benchmark in this field.
The company invested BRL 152 million in SSMA programs that year.
