People and Communities Excellence in Health and Safety

Everyone at Firmenich has a role to play in fulfilling our vision of Health and Safety Excellence. We strive to maintain the highest standards of sustainable health, safety and environmental care.

Our employees and contractors health and safety are of utmost importance to Firmenich. We are committed to achieving and maintaining world-class safety performance in our operations.

In FY16, we invested CHF 13.05 million in a wide variety of projects to improve our safety performance. These included improvements or upgrades of our ventilation system, fire and explosion protection, fall protection, ergonomics, lone worker systems, pedestrian protection, confined space entry, emergency response, hearing protection, and chemical handling.

In FY15, we reached our five-year target to improve our safety performance by 50% (against the FY10 baseline). In FY16, our performance improved again. Our total recordable case (TRC) and lost time case (LTC) rates fell to 0.25 and 0.1 respectively, a 41% and 47% improvement compared to FY15. Our TRC rate fell by 72.2% against our rolling five-year baseline (FY11).

On our Pathways to Positive for 2020, we set the ambitious goal to improve our industry-leading safety performance by maintaining a total recordable case (TRC) rate below 0.25.

More information on the projects conducted in 2016 to improve Health and Safety (H&S) are available in our 2016 sustainability report.
