Our first priority

At Chane, we know that maintaining a high standard of safety is an active and continuous process. Beyond rigorously adhering to all local and international rules and regulations, we work together with our customers, partners and industry peers to stimulate awareness and create a shared culture of safety.

Together, as a team, we work to identify, eliminate, reduce and manage any safety, environmental and health risks associated with our activities. For our customers, our colleagues and our neighbours and communities.

Safety essentials

Our approach to personal safety

We want to ensure that our people have everything they need to work safely at the start of their day, and that they can return home in good health at the end of it. Our standard for safety is reflected in our Safety Essentials. These ten key rules serve as a continuous reminder of the importance of safe working habits at all Chane terminals across Europe. We encourage our people to use their skills, knowledge and training to maintain a safe, healthy and secure work environment.

Process safety

Continuously minimising risk

Our process safety approach ensures the integrity of our systems and processes handling hazardous substances. We identify risks and review operational practices to maintain safety. Through activities such as inspection, maintenance and testing of equipment and continuous training of staff, we strive to continuously improve our process safety performance.We keep learning and progressing, identifying, eliminating and minimising risk wherever possible.
