Health and Safety in the Workplace

Long-term goal: Zero accidents

Occupational safety has the highest priority at Henkel. We strive to continuously improve occupational health and safety measures to ensure a safe work environment for our employees worldwide. Our long-term objective of “zero accidents” remains unchanged. Building on the improvements achieved by 2007, we set ourselves an interim target: to reduce occupational accidents by a further 20 percent by 2012. This target was already met in 2010. To achieve our long-term goal, we continue to hold safety training programs worldwide.

The early identification of risks and the prevention of accidents play a key role here. Site-specific circumstances are taken into consideration through regional and local initiatives and actions.  This strategy proves to be successful: 83 percent of our worldwide production sites were accident-free in 2010.
