Our commitment: Ensure all Nestlé employees are covered by a certified Safety and Health Management system



By 2016 - Ensure that robust safety and health management systems are in place and certified to OHSAS 18001:2007, covering all Nestlé employee populations so that there is a uniform level of safety and health protection across all businesses.

At Nestlé, our most important assets are our people, which is why employee safety and health is our top priority. As stated in our Corporate Business Principles, we are committed to preventing accidents, injuries, and illnesses related to work, and to protecting employees, contractors, and others along our value chain. We monitor key environmental performance indicators at a factory level using our Safety, Health, and Environmental Sustainability Performance Management System.
