Health and Safety

Ensuring safety at work as well as improving safety performance

Environment, Health and Safety is the number one priority for Constellium – we want every employee, visitor and contractor to return home safely every day. 

We continue to develop new processes and modify existing ones to improve our safety performance. The two fatalities in 2013 and the single incident in 2014 have all led to significant new programs. These include a range of initiatives to address the dangers of crane operation and working at height, following the fatalities at our plants in Ravenswood, West Virginia and Levice, Slovakia in 2013.

EHS FIRST at Constellium

We also launched a new communications program based on the FIRST acronym to remind employees of our five key safety behaviors.

Contractors, suppliers and visitors to our sites are expected to comply with the same high EHS requirements as employees. Each person receives a plant-specific orientation and is fully supervised throughout their visit. Each person entering a Constellium managed area is included in the Constellium Injury Record keeping System.

Promoting health and reducing stress

Promoting health and reducing stress underlines our commitment to all aspects of employee wellbeing.

Over the last 12 months, our teams in Germany carried out important work to help people return to Constellium following absence. Also in Germany, we launched an extensive health campaign at our Singen, Gottmadingen and Dahenfeld plants, focused on five key elements:

    Stress management, including stress analysis through a heart scan, together with seminars on how to reduce stress and how leaders can encourage health;
    Promoting physical activity, through eight-week circuit training programs;
    Ergonomics, including a physiotherapy consultation and expert personal advice;
    Nutrition, based on improving nutrition by promoting balanced menus in our canteens; and
    Vaccination, including influenza vaccinations.
