Environmental and OHS Applications

New personnel are trained in OHS and Environmental Orientation before being taken to the production area. OHS and Environment Orientation training lasts all day and following the theoretical training, site practice is made and the content of the training is exhibited in practice; the practice is performed particularly by using the route from the emergency exit doors to the collection areas.

At least once every 2 years, all personnel take Basic Occupational Safety Training (8 hours) and Basic Occupational Health Training (4 hours).

Internal and external trainings on Occupational Health and Safety & Environment (First-Aid Trainings, Emergency Trainings, Emergency Exercises, Chemical and Waste Trainings, Chemical and Waste Exercises, Ergonomics Trainings, Work At High Trainings, Single-Point Trainings, etc.) are performed during the year.
