Hatch recognized by the Chilean Safety Association for our outstanding commitment to occupational health and safety
Hatch was recently recognized by the Chilean Safety Association (ACHS) for our outstanding commitment to occupational health and safety.
The ACHS commended Hatch's 6.5 million hours logged without an accident over the last seven years. The ACHS is one of three private administrative bodies that focus on risk prevention and recognize companies that promote a culture of health and safety.
The achievement was honored with a celebration held at Hatch's office in Santiago in September, which was attended by ACHS representatives Carlos Brante, head of commercial management and prevention; Claudia Quiroga, commercial executive; and Enrique Álvarez, expert advisor in risk prevention. Karl Pearce, the country manager of the Chilean operation, accepted the award on behalf of Hatch, which constantly strives to live up to its Manifesto value of achieving “No Harm.”
At the ceremony, Brante acknowledged the strong health and safety culture that characterizes Hatch and applauded the willingness of its employees to participate in health and safety programs and initiatives. In turn, Álvarez, who has served the Chilean operation as its occupational health and safety consultant, praised Hatch for its solid commitment to a safe working environment.
