We’re committed to the health, safety and welfare of all employees and managed staff within the workplace. We achieve this by ensuring our facilities and people comply with applicable Health and Safety legal requirements, implementing continual improvements to our health and safety control arrangements and setting proactive leading targets for a healthier and safer workplace.
We are committed to achieving:
We strive to create a safe work environment in which employee safety is put first wherever people work, from our research facilities through to manufacturing sites, warehouses and commercial offices.
Every location operates a health & safety management system that adheres to the Company’s occupational health & safety policy, global standards, code of business conduct and other specific guidance.
The importance of these standards is recognised by our senior management team and forms an integral part of our culture and RB’s responsibility value.
This has helped us develop best practice and make significant progress in Health and Safety since 2002.
Global initiatives include:
Maintaining and enhancing our global safety training programme
In 2017 RB continued to develop safety training programs with 25,036 employees involved. For 2018, we have set targets on increasing the amount of safety training each employee receives. We are planning a range of initiatives to further develop our training programme these include enhancing our training packages for RB standards, training through safety day initiatives, global eLearning on Health & Safety for all employees, establishing RB H&S safety golden rules and an innovate safety game concept.
To highlight our commitment to health & safety, we continue to strengthen capacity and expertise of our health & safety teams to cater for our targeted ambition to continuously improve our internal knowledge, decision making and appropriate external benchmarking.
We continue to embed heightened EH&S culture through rigorous auditing, support and training.
Continue to drive improvements in health and safety, including rolling out a health and safety
culture survey to all sites.
Continue with programme of global standards to provide clarity on expectations on areas of greatest risk across all manufacturing, warehouses, R&D facilities and commercial offices.
