[GRI 103-2b] As an employer, MYTILINEOS contributes to one of the most widely accepted social goals, namely to improve living standards through full-time and safe employment and decent work. Retaining existing jobs and creating new ones is a strategic choice which the Company has made in order to achieve growth in all areas directly or indirectly related to its activities. The Company's labor practices comply as a minimum with all the provisions of the legislation in force and respect the fundamental principles laid down in the International Labor Organization's (ILO's) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. [GRI 103-1a] Boundaries of the Material Issue [GRI 102-46] [GRI 103-1b] Issue of increased significance to: Where the impacts occur: In all work areas of MYTILINEOS' Business Activity Sectors and subsidiaries. The management of the topic by MYTILINEOS contributes to the Sustainable Development: • Employees • Shareholders / Investors • Regulatory bodies in the context of their cooperation with MYTILINEOS. • Curbing unemployment and poverty at local and national level. • Strengthening the economy of local communities. • Enhancing employability in the industrial sector. By whomare the impacts caused: The Business Activity Sectors of MYTILINEOS and its subsidiaries are directly involved in these impacts, while its contractors/suppliers may also be indirectly involved. Indirect Employees With a view to strengthening and consolidating a common safety culture among all MYTILINEOS' business partners, a custom-de- signed training program on the prevention of major accidents was again implemented this year in all Business Activity Sectors, attended bymore than 3,700 indirect employees. The follow- ing are the basic educational sections of the program: • Introductory con- tractor training • General safety rules • General Risks and Regulations in the Plant • Specific Electrical Hazards in the Electrolysis Line • Fire safety – Use of fire extinguishers • Safe Work at Heights – Falls • Risks of portable tools • Hazard Assessment • Communication system in underground activities • Safe movement of Pedestrians, Machinery & Vehicles • Harmful Factors in under- ground activities • Musculo-skeletal risks • Lifting Machinery • Emergency Plans • Safety of High-Pressure Hydraulic Tools • Safe performance of electrical work • Road Safety • Use of Personal Protective Equipment • Emergency First Aid at Work • “Safety at Work” intro- ductory training • Manual handling of loads • Cleanliness of premises • Emergencies Managing the safety of the personnel of independent contractors is a particular challenge for MYTILINEOS. The Company is con- sistent in its efforts in this area and focuses on the need to alter everyone's behavior and mentality about accident prevention. For example, contractors who employ a significant number of personnel at the facilities of the Metallurgy Sector's aluminium plant, are required to implement an OHSAS 18001 or ISO 45001 certified Occupational Health & Safety management system, while the company evaluates regularly their performance using specific criteria. Similarly, the management of Health and Safety issues in the EPC & Infrastructure Projects Sector is governed by a series of actions that should be implemented by associated con- tractors, for proper implementation of the Health & Safety system prepared for each project separately and for taking appropriate measures in the context of the project that they undertake. • The zero work related fatalities targets were achieved. • Eight (8) lost time accidents were recorded, resulting in a decline by 11% and 29.6% respectively , in the number of accidents and in the lost time accidents rate , compared to the previous year.

At the same time, the collection of health-related data in the Company's core activities was continued, contributing to the effort to ensure a safe work- ing environment. • A total of 50 visits to the medical stations were recorded, a number increased by 13.6% since 2018. • More than 3,700 indirect employees were trained in Health and Safety issues. 105 104
