When it comes to our employees’ safety, our goal is simple: zero fatalities and ‘Safety First’ because nothing matters more than the safety of our people. Since 2016 we have been following “12 HEINEKEN Life Saving Rules” which set out clear and simple do’s and don’ts for our highest-risk activities. We work continuously to improve our safety standards; we’ve gone more than three years without an accident and 89% of our employees think management cares about their health and safety.
When it was noticed that some employees at the filling line were not wearing protective glasses because they usually wear regular eyesight glasses, our management team asked the Behaviour Based Safety team to come up with a solution. Protective, custom made eyesight glasses were made and, and safety standards in our filling department are now significantly improved.
On April 26th 2019 we celebrated a great success: 1,000 days without accidents in our brewery in Karlovac. This means that not a single employee or contractor got hurt within our brewery site for almost three years thanks to continuous investments in safety and daily focus on the right and appropriate behaviours and our Life Saving Rules.
