Work has not yet begun
We continued our efforts to ensure the safety of our people, with ambitious goals and creative ways of engaging our teams. The results speak for themselves.
Since 2005 our incident rate has declined by 72% across the Group.
First-class health and safety practices are an essential step for building trust among employees, their families and local communities. Our work with OHS (Occupational Health & Safety) focuses primarily on the safety of workers in production and also raises awareness of the health and wellbeing of office workers.
Our current global injury rate (TCIR) of 0.9 compares favorably with other well-known benchmarks, as reported in publicly available sources. Almost 65% of our manufacturing sites have achieved a rate below 1.0. Even though our performance bar is already high, we have an ambitious target in place: to reduce our global injury rate (TCIR) by at least 5% every year.
We are saddened to report that one Electrolux employee lost his life following an accident in a production facility in Rosario, Argentina, in February 2015. Family members and plant staff were supported during this difficult time. A Group investigation identified the cause and made suggestions to improve procedures. These were shared across the company.
Our ambition is to apply the same OHS management system across the Group and among contractors by 2016.
All employees in production are covered by a reporting system to track incidents and hours worked. Employees within Global Industrial Operations are covered by an OHS Safety Management System. Electrolux Professional, consisting of some 2,600 employees (7% of total employees), has its own program aligned with Group ambitions and performance indicators.
All manufacturing sites have central safety committees that include workers and worker representatives. All employees receive safety training at induction and annually, tailored to their function. Incidents are reported daily to site management, and to sector heads on a monthly basis. Performance is disclosed in group-wide data collection. Safety audits of all manufacturing sites have been split into two activities: a behavioral audit, carried out by line managers on a monthly basis, and a safety audit carried out by OHS engineers. Global Safety Day, which raises awareness among employees and demonstrates management commitment to safety, is held every year for Global Industrial Operations.
As of 2015, we monitor contractor TCIR data, starting with warehouses and distribution centers managed through Global Industrial Operations.
