Safety first, always

April 2023

At ArcelorMittal, safety is a top priority. At all levels, for each of us, and for our senior managers too.

On 27 April, on the occasion of Heatlh and Safety Day, Geert Van Poelvoorde, Executive Vice President and CEO of ArcelorMittal Europe, visited our steel service centre in Krakow.

Accompanied by the site manager and our CEO, Jean-Marc Butin, Geert Van Poelvoorde toured the site, doing what we call a "safety walk", checking on the safety culture and the team’s knowledge of risk assessment.
Line operators at the workfloor were asked to describe the risks at their workplace, and many innovative facilities were presented such as the Haka room, an excellent and innovative example of team building.

The visit was an opportunity to remind the teams of all the safety rules, including our 10 life-saving Golden Rules, and to present the new 2023 health and safety video produced by the Group to raise awareness about the importance of conducting effective controls for critical risks and the importance of shared vigilance.

Employees were then invited to participate in several safety activities.
