How we measure progress

  1. Global injury rate (TCIR)
  2. Lost days due to injury (LCIR)

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 2012 our incident rate has declined by 49% 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 0.6 compares favorably with other well-known benchmarks, as reported in publicly available sources. 72% of our manufacturing sites have achieved a rate below 1.0. Even though our performance is already high, we have an ambitious target in place: to reduce our global injury rate (TCIR) by at least 5% every year.
