Sherritt’s operations are built on a zero harm health and safety culture. We work hard to minimize operational risks to our workforce and nearby communities, and engage with these important stakeholders regularly on matters of safety, security and emergency response. Employee engagement and development remain top priorities in ensuring we attract and retain the people critical to our business and its success. We believe that this is best achieved by fostering an inclusive workplace.
