Health and safety

Throughout 2015, Crown implemented a globally accepted Health and Safety Manual.  Available to all employees, it is the basis for our global OHSAS 18001 policy.  After external audits, Crown has now retained and grown to 37 certified sites, up from 21 in 2013. This exceeds the company goal of 20% growth in certified sites.

To further embed good practices, we have improved access and knowledge of global processes, policy and standards in health and safety through the company’s internal SharePoint platform.  This now gives our people better access to manuals, documents and local records to ensure the well-being of our staff.  Certified sites can use this to manage required documentation; locations aiming for initial certification have access to guidelines enabling them to achieve certification. In addition, we continue to maintain easy-to-read pocket guides on general health and safety advice and on safe driving for all our employees.

Our goals

Our goals for 2016 include expanding our OHSAS 18001 health and safety certification to at least 10% additional locations.  In doing so, we will further spread and embed safe work habits for our employees around the globe.  We will also continue work to establish a common global accident record to help us monitor our worldwide performance in a more consistent way, then set global targets for improvement.
