REDARC is convinced of the importance of Prevention to manage safety appropriately and encourages all employees to report hazards, near misses and any incidents. REDARC uses the Risk Assessment methodology to assess and control (eliminate, reduce, or mitigate) the risks identified.
REDARC endeavour to design and manufacture safe products by:
· Developing compliant safety products.
· Working with its customers and experts to understand the possible safety implication of failures.
· Designing product and process with a particular focus on safety; identifying and controlling the critical characteristic of REDARC products.
· Deploying the safety management to its suppliers, ensuring as far as practical the relevant controls are in place to guarantee the safety characteristics along the supply chain.
REDARC aims to achieve “zero safety incidents” (people and product).
REDARC believes its employees are central for providing a safe environment and safe products. This is done by ensuring that all employee
s understand that they have an important role to play in matters concerning safety, by having a positive attitude related to reporting problems, issues, or concerns and by embracing the continuous improvement approach.
REDARC invests significantly in employee training and communicates regularly on safety related matters.
