Safety

In 2013 we revised our safety policy which saw a change in the classification of injuries and illnesses.

This led to reporting a Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR)* of 2.2, representing a total of 30 Lost Time Injuries in 2013 compared with 55 in 2012.

Our Lae factory in Papua New Guinea celebrated seven years without a LTIFR, a major milestone not only for the factory but also our region. The result was due to teamwork and a consistent approach to educating and coaching both employees and contractors in safe behavior.

Safety is non-negotiable. Nestlé believes in the health and wellbeing of our people. We commit to safety as a core value to ensure our people return home safely each day. Find out more about our Safety & Health Policy.

*LTIFR – any incident which requires one day absent from work.
