We aim to foster an injury prevention culture where employees, managers, and leadership have the courage to act on “potential” injuries before they occur. To support these ambitions, we conduct risk assessments, host safety trainings, oversee safety improvement programs, and make ongoing adjustments to processes and operations. All of our efforts are supported by the OHSAS 18001-certified Lumileds Occupational Health and Safety Management System.
To support the health and wellbeing of employees, our sites around the world manage a range of initiatives that include:
In 2017, Lumileds total number of recordable injury cases decreased to 0.42, from 0.44 in 2016. Our total number of lost workday injury cases also decreased to 0.18, compared to 0.32 in 2016. * With these improvements, our safety performance is on-track to meet our 2020 goals.
Reduce lost workday injury cases to 0.15*
The majority of occupational injuries have their origins in at-risk and unsafe behaviors. To address this, we work to reinforce a company-wide culture where everyone is responsible to proactively identify, address and reduce unsafe actions. To support this, Lumileds created Behavior Based Safety (BBS) programs that foster positive safety behaviors. In 2017, each of our sites implemented several BBS initiatives including the following:
Behavior Based Safety observations create a culture where employees openly look out for themselves and each other and discuss how to do their jobs more safely.
