Our commitment: Ensure all Nestlé employees are covered by a certified safety and health management system

Our commitment: Ensure all Nestlé units have basic safety and health protection systems for all employees

Nestlé believes that all accidents are preventable and we work hard to foster our company’s safety culture. Our aim of zero injuries and work-related illnesses is ambitious but, with our Safety and Health Roadmap, we are moving towards it. We are also helping employees make more informed decisions on their health.

Our objective

By 2016: Ensure that robust safety and health management systems are in place and certified to OHSAS 18001:2007, covering all Nestlé employee populations so there is a uniform level of safety and health protection across all businesses.

Our progress

At the end of 2015, BS OHSAS 18001 certified safety and health management systems were in place, covering 70% of our employees. Our Human Resources team are sponsoring Safety and Health beyond Operations, helping to improve compliance in sales and office-based functions. And to improve the capability of our managers, we introduced leadership training programmes. The Nestlé Framework for Employee Health was approved this year and our markets have already started to align their local health strategies to the global framework.
