The nature of our operational work and the equipment our employees work with pose safety risks, including machine safety, working at height, forklift trucks, cutting and welding. We work hard to create a safety culture to reduce these risks. Our occupational health and safety (OHS) initiatives ensure safe working conditions everywhere for our employees. 

Achieving safety excellence

By prioritising the well-being of our employees, we aim to create a safe working environment that promotes proactive risk management. Our Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) process outlines yearly clear deliverables and leadership approval steps. Risks are assessed throughout Tetra Pak, internal controls are self-assessed annually, and internal audits assure corporate governance activities.

We have a strong network of local and regional OHS officers supported by a corporate OHS team to ensure that all companies within our business have access to competent corporate OHS support. This enables them to work towards our zero-accident ambition.

Innovative solutions and OHS competency

As part of our ongoing commitment to safety, we have implemented My OHS, a global software platform that provides comprehensive support to our employees and agency workers. Furthermore, we have launched virtual courses to further raise OHS competency in key positions, equipping our team with the necessary knowledge and skills to ensure a safe working environment. All incidents with high potential severity now have greater scrutiny from senior management to drive awareness and ensure learnings are shared, globally.

Many of our sites also focus on employee health and wellbeing more broadly, from offering regular hearing and eyesight tests, routine vaccinations, and ergonomic risk assessments, to stress management programmes, complementary therapies, advice on nutrition and healthy living, and alcohol and drug support.

Well-being for all

As part of our aim to improve global employee mental well-being, we have launched a campaign helping employees recognise symptoms of poor mental well-being in themselves or their colleagues and tools to help them make changes to improve the situation.

The campaign worked alongside the global Employee Assistance Programme, which is open to all employees and their families should they need emotional support or counselling.
