Occupational health and safety

At Nemak, Occupational Health and Safety refers to the physical and mental well-being of our employees by providing a work environment that meets and exceeds the applicable legal standards for OHS. We aim to reduce the number and severity of work-place related injuries and lower the impact of errors and mistakes through preventative programs to identify and eliminate risks, employee training and mental-health awareness initiatives.

Diversity and inclusion

When we refer to Diversity and Inclusion, we refer to creating an inclusive culture built on equity, equality, and non-discriminatory principles. For Nemak, this includes the topics of workplace diversity (age, race, disability, ethnicity, other characteristics are what make Nemak’s employees unique), equal opportunities for recruitment, selection, career development, and learning, fair compensation and benefits, and avoiding complicity. Nemak's Code of Conduct and Diversity and Inclusion Policy provide a guideline for our employees, as well for our suppliers.
