Working conditions (safety at work)
Royal Unibrew must be a safe and healthy place to work for its employees; the Group focuses on preventive measures to avoid employees being worn out and incurring work-related injuries and works actively to promote job satisfaction.
Near-accidents are registered and followed up daily with a view to establishing preventive measures as quickly as possible in order to avoid accidents.
At all production sites, health & safety activities are carried out adapted to the local production site and work area. In Denmark, for example, joint health & safety discussions, a joint health & safety day as well as courses with focus on tools to reduce daily peak loads were organised in 2017.
In 2017, follow-up was performed on the findings of a job satisfaction measurement made in the period from December 2016 to February 2017 among all employees, and measures have been taken locally to identify factors that may contribute towards higher job satisfaction.
Based on the job satisfaction measurement and the reporting on near-accidents in 2017, investments have been made in technical aids and measures to prevent heavy lifting and harmful movements. Financial resources are specifically allocated for this, for example for ladders, platforms and protective equipment.
The key risks relate to occupational accidents or employees being worn out due to physically demanding jobs and job dissatisfaction.
A target for the maximum number of occupational accidents per million work hours has been defined, and all occupational accidents are registered. A job satisfaction survey is regularly carried out among all employees. The survey results in an overall job satisfaction score and provides us with the possibility of monitoring developments in the area.
