We strive to ensure that individuals are free from harm during every project and activity. We believe that working as a team is the best way to achieve our aim of zero accidents and work-related illnesses.

Our approach

Safe and healthy, every day, everywhere: our group-wide approach emphasises that occupational health and safety (OHS) does not only apply to factories; it affects all of us. In 2018, we retained 100 percent manufacturing site compliance with the global OHS standard OHSAS 18001. We are close to the full implementation of our global OHS management system, and track OHS data as we strive for continuous improvement. We also continued the roll out of our global assessment programme for our non-manufacturing sites (market companies and head offices) with 19 sites assessed, and we are on target to cover all sites by the end of 2019.

We have enhanced our team with Services and Processing OHS managers for each cluster. These roles are helping deliver against local plans to improve OHS maturity. Each of our factories continues to deliver on its local 3-year improvement plans.

OHS remains critical to our business strategy and our approach is underpinned by our core values.

Building a safety culture

The nature of our operational work and the equipment our people work with brings with it safety risks, including machinery safety, working at height, forklift trucks, cutting and welding, driving, heavy lifting and manual handling. We are working hard to build the kind of safety culture that can reduce these risks.
