Sustainability Report

Health and Safety

We believe that life is more important than production, and we continue to make every effort necessary to achieve our goal of zero harm, which we established in 2011.

In 2012, we continued our awareness-raising activities for employees, especially leaders. The cultural evolution can be seen in the reduction in the company’s accident rates, the results obtained from implementing our Health and Safety Management System, and other indicators.


Day to Reflect on Health and Safety

For the second year in a row, Vale mobilized globally for its Day to Reflect on Health and Safety, held on November 13. This occasion is used to intensify collective efforts at achieving zero harm. On a single day, more than 156,000 employees and service providers took part in the action.
