All of our employees have the fundamental right to return home at the end of a working day in the same state of health as when they arrived.
This duty of care, which we extend to all our employees and visitors to our sites, informs all our principles of operation to ensure the safety of the communities in which we operate, the customers who use the technology and the consumers who ultimately make use of the products that our technology is used to enhance.
The company operates a Zero Tolerance attitude to accidents and considers all such incidents as preventable. All safety related incidents are investigated and reported and Health & Safety is a topic reported on at every board meeting and forms a standing agenda item for the Management Team meetings.
In more than 10 years of operation none of our sites has ever had a lost time accident and to our knowledge neither has there been any such accident at any of our licensees, attributable to their operation of the Keronite equipment.
Within the last 12 months the senior management team have attended Health & Safety training specifically designed for Directors and Executives. A number of members of staff have also been trained to conduct Risk Assessments and these are routinely carried out before new activities are undertaken.
We are proud of the fact that none of our electrolytes contain heavy metals or other bio-accumulative toxins. Our process does not require strong acids or alkalis and all of our facilities are fully compliant with local operational regulations.
Our process does make use of high energy electricity (both voltage and current) and so all of our process systems, which are designed and built by us, offer closed loop safety systems. These are designed to protect operators from harm with multiple mechanisms.
Health and Safety briefing is a documented part of induction training for all new employees and fire safety training is carried out for all staff within six months of them starting work at a new site.
