This certification assists Eurotire in managing best health and safety risks, continually improve worker protection, and create a corporate culture that values worker safety as much as production and profit."

These certifications demonstrate our commitment to the protection of our staff, our property and our plant. It is key to improving the company's safety culture while it increases our reputation for health and safety."
