The BU Beaulieu Engineered Products says it is committed to achieving similar strong safety performance in its Yarns and Technical Textiles divisions and has now fully launched a customised behaviour-based safety programme at three specific production sites in Belgium and France. This B.I.G. Behave Safely programme aims to minimise the number and severity of accidents and incidents.

Initiatives in progress

Initiatives in progress actively involve employees in workshops, training events and coaching sessions on safety rules and instructions. In addition, an awareness-raising poster campaign draws daily attention to the importance of behaving safely.
