Johnson Matthey has five safety principles which describe what you can expect from us as an employer and what we expect from you.

Our safety principles

All injuries and occupational illnesses are preventable

We believe all injuries and occupational illnesses are preventable. No one should get hurt or become ill from doing their job.


We are all responsible for preventing injuries and occupational illnesses

All of us have a role to speak out about any unsafe practices without delay. If you see a colleague doing something which does not follow our safety principles, tell them and get help.


Working safely is a condition of employment

Johnson Matthey takes a zero tolerance approach to unsafe work practices: if anyone acts in a way that ignores safety the company will take action. In some serious cases this could lead to dismissal.


Lifesaving Policies and Site Safety Rules must be followed

Our Lifesaving Polices cover operations such as working at heights and guarding dangerous equipment. All employees must follow these policies as well as any site-specific safety rules. Find out more about the Lifesaving Policies or speak to your manager.


Johnson Matthey will promote off-the-job health and safety awareness for its employees

Being healthy and keeping safe is just as important at home as it is at work. That's why we are committed to raising awareness of everyday health and safety outside of work too.
