Accident prevention campaign
"Activate the brain's right hemisphere"
In 2014, the Management of the ALUMINIUM OF GREECE plant judged that the safety of employees is an issue that
cannot be tackled solely through inspections, work instructions, procedures etc. There is a need to raise awareness
among employees using emotion as a trigger for effective thinking and acting with regard to safety.
To this end, the decision was taken to carry out a specialised campaign on safety at the workplace, using the
innovative method of activating the brain's “right hemisphere”. According to the campaign’s concept, in order to
raise awareness effectively, the right stimuli/messages must be provided to activate the right hemisphere of the
employees' brain, which in turn mobilises imagination, creativity and emotion.
This effort started with a search for ideas, followed by the photo shoot, image processing and printing and, finally,
the placement of posters in various locations within the plant.
The campaign was carried out by a group of employees consisting of members of the Plant’s Health & Safety
Committee, volunteer graphic designers working in ALUMINIUM OF GREECE and the plant’s Safety Department.
The “right hemisphere” campaign will be continued during 2015!

& Development
Professional advancement, succession planning, the development of di-
verse skills and capabilities at various hierarchical levels, performance
reviews, education and training, and the transfer of know-how and experi-
ence to direct personnel as well as to supervised employees, are common
objectives shared by all MYTILINEOS Group companies.
The Group’s activity in various sectors, such as in the processing of metals,
in specialised construction projects and in the energy sector, leads to differ-
ing training needs, yet at the same time offers to its personnel access to a
broad range of knowledge and skills, providing them with opportunities to
developmanagerial and problem-solving skills, as they face new challeng-
es every day. In MYTILINEOS Group, education and training focuses on the
ongoing identification of actual training needs, based on which the annual
training programmes are developed.
These are addressed to all newly-hired personnel as well as to existing
employees, who may change jobs or take on additional responsibilities.
Moreover, the Group’s work environment encourages initiative, rewards
innovation and evaluates each employee’s individual performance. Each
Group subsidiary has in place advanced performance review systems for
its personnel, whose key feature is the absolute priority given to filling va-
cancies through internal promotions, provided that the candidate employ-
ees possess the knowledge and qualifications required for the correspond-
ing position.
In 2014, a total of 53,995hours of trainingprogrammes tookplace inall Group
subsidiaries. In addition, the individual performance evaluation review pro-
cess was carried out for the large majority of the Group's employees.
*The year 2014 is set as the reference year (with regard to the indicator’s adjustment
to the GRI-G4 guidelines), with the figures given also including training hours for
supervised employees.
*The percentage does not include newly-hired employees, as they are not
evaluated during their first year of employment.
