Expression of support
In the morning of Saturday, March 11, 2023, a serious accident occurred while a contractor was working near the Water Treatment Plant at our site in Hoboken, Belgium. Two colleagues, subcontracted to work on our site, were injured.
Yesterday we were saddened to learn that one of the victims died on Thursday, March 23, as a result of injuries sustained in the accident.
All Umicore colleagues are deeply affected by this loss. Our thoughts are with the family, friends, and colleagues. We wish them much strength and our sincere condolences. We are making every effort to provide the families, as well as our own colleagues, with appropriate support during this difficult time.
Together with the subcontractor, we are continuing unabated the investigation into the cause of the accident so that we can understand exactly what happened and do everything possible to avoid it in the future.
