This is how we do things at Tate & Lyle and always has been; we ask the same of everyone who comes to our sites – not just our employees and contractors, but customers and visitors too.
One accident or injury is one too many. Our target is zero and every day we focus on safety in our business.
Annual Report - Safety
Each year we publish in our Annual Report our key safety performance indicators and how we have performed.
Our Executive Safety Steering Committee, led by our Chief Executive, meets several times during the year to review our safety performance and improvement programmes.
Our goal is to have no accidents or injuries and we work hard to achieve this. We review our safety management programme throughout the year, and use external and internal auditors to review management and controls at all major sites. In addition, our senior executives also carry out safety audits at most of our global sites once a year.
Key highlights from our 2017 Annual Report
For employees and contractors, the combined recordable injuries decreased by 12% in the calendar year 2016 and the lost-work cases decreased by 38%.
The combined recordable incident rate remained flat in 2016 and the combined lost-work case rate decreased by 31% compared to 2015. The majority of incidents requiring treatment beyond first aid were the result of being struck by or struck against an object.
