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.
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 2017, we reached 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 started a global OHS assessment programme for our non-manufacturing sites (market companies and head offices). OHS remains critical to our business strategy and our approach is underpinned by our core values.
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.
We have a holistic and centralised approach to health and wellbeing at Tetra Pak. We use central governance and run a rolling programme of initiatives to drive progress. In 2017, we conducted a detailed analysis of our local health and wellbeing programmes and agreed to focus on noise at work and mental wellbeing in 2018.
