Safety and health

   
Our commitment:
Ensure that all Nestlé units have the necessary systems in place to deliver the same level of basic safety and health protection for all employees

Keeping people safe in the Philippines
Keeping people safe in the Philippines: Nestlé Philippines has introduced a number of safety first initiatives to reduce incidents and injuries across the business.

Our objectives

By 2016 – Certify the safety and health management systems for all office-based and sales staff.

Our progress

In 2013, the safety and health management systems at 442 factories, 130 distribution centres and 25 R&D centres were certified to OHSAS 18001 (2012: 418 factories, 130 distribution centres and 24 R&D centres).

Our perspective

Improvement in our safety and health systems and their certification needs long-term engagement across the organisation in every market, whether our businesses are field- or office-based. This can be challenging, as it may entail a significant behavioural step change in markets where the current level of engagement of sales and office-based staff in safety and health is low.
