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 FY17, our TRC and LTC rates fell by 67% and 40% against our rolling five-year baseline (FY12).

During FY17, a total of 18 manufacturing sites achieved a full year with zero recordable injuries with five achieving over one million exposure hours injury free. During this period, we also invested CHF 10.4 million in new projects to further improve safety and enhance our fire protection systems.

Our safety performance and TRC rate are now amongst the best in our industry. However, the absence of injuries is not the best indicator of the presence of safety. In the next financial year, we will focus on safety management and performance reporting, particularly in the areas of process safety, incidents with serious potential, and site and personal security.

More information on the projects conducted in 2017 to improve Health and Safety (H&S) are available in our 2017 sustainability report.
