Our staff at Raffineria di Milazzo is well trained and highly qualified. Over the years, our policy of hiring staff with a university or trade school degree, replacing people with a lower educational level, has allowed us to constantly improve the level of professionalism. Today, nearly all our employees have a high/trade school degree(80%) and the number of university graduates is constantly growing (17%).
As a testament of the close relationship that exists between the Company and the Community, 90% of RAM staff comes from the Messina area.
Several third companies specialised in various sectors work at the refinery. Their number varies depending on the planned building and maintenance activities. The estimated number of third company staff operating on a monthly basis within the premises ranges from a minimum of 500 to a maximum of 1,700 at peak times for major turn-around maintenance activities.
