Quality, safety and environment

Our healthcare activity is based on three fundamental pillars: the quality of our products and services, safety for our employees, clients and patients, and environmental protection.

A vital liability to our communities and ourselves

Conscious of the importance of our social responsibility, we intend to ensure, at all times, the well-being of our people, the sustainable development of our activities, as well as the quality of our products and services.

Ensuring our safety

Safety is a fundamental value to Air Liquide Healthcare. All our efforts converge towards the same goal: to attain zero accidents so that our colleagues can return home bearing the same state as when they arrived at work.

This mission has two essential elements: 1) to provide safe workplaces and 2) to educate our employees and partners to take control of their own safety as well as that of others. Our systematic approach to risk management is based on industry best practices, many of which come from our own ranks.

At the same time, we are committed to providing healthy workplaces to our employees that meet the highest standards. Our programs help reduce the risks associated with occupational diseases and protect their health. We also ensure that they adopt healthy lifestyle habits  from this moment on.

Ensuring sustainable development

Like workplaces, the environment in which we operate must also be healthy. We seek to significantly reduce our ecological footprint. Our role is to make our facilities compliant with environmental legislation.

To achieve this, we work collectively to eliminate, reduce and manage waste releases from our facilities, particularly our waste, gaseous emissions and noise.

Quality and continuous improvement are at the heart of our corporate values.
Like other policies, they are the vehicle of our actions concerning our employees, our customers, our clients, our patients and the community.
