Our Approach

Health Safety and Environment

Our promise is we go home safe every day.

People do amazing things and we believe they have the courage to shape a smart, safe workplace. We enable this to happen by creating a supportive, innovative and fun culture. One that is honest, open, and based on mutual respect.

At Haynes, no harm is our goal, and there is nothing more important than championing the values of our approach to Health, Safety and Environment within our teams. We implement targets and measure performance. But more importantly, we encourage everyone to share learnings, speak up, listen, respect and respond positively to the people around them.

Every step of the way, our people are encouraged to look out for each other. If a mistake is made, we learn from it and move on. This is how we grow and evolve as people and as a business. It’s how we keep our promise of getting everyone home safe, every day.


We believe in growing and backing our people to become the best they can be, realise their potential, and believe in themselves.
