Health and Safety (H&S) is fundamental to our work culture at Sonnedix because it helps create an environment where employees feel valued and respected. This is why it was important for the HSE team to reinforce our commitment to keeping you safe by encouraging training exercises and providing resources to learn more about Safety Week 2023.
Did you know that around 7,600 people die every day because of accidents that happen on the job, as well as work-related diseases? That is 2.78 million deaths a year!
The World Day for Safety and Health at Work, held on April 28, has been observed during Safety Week by the International Labour Organization (ILO) since 2003. It intends to focus international attention on the magnitude of the problem to help reduce the number of work-related deaths and injuries. At Sonnedix, our One Team and our partners remain our top priority, and by providing these tools, we continue to be committed to your well-being.
Our global offices participated in various weekly activities, including first aid training (CPR/AED), workshops on PPE for electrical works, VR simulations of fire extinguishing, and more!
For Sonnedix, this is not just a check box exercise but a moral obligation to prioritize and integrate H&S into our culture. It is a process that requires continuous attention and improvement. Safety is not optional. It is MUST - which is why our HSE team constantly works toward evaluating our policies by relying on these fundamentals below:
🔸 Leadership: We establish clear safety expectations and objectives and lead by example, providing the necessary resources.
🔸 Risk Management: We promote identifying and assessing work hazards in all activities to eliminate them or reduce their consequences.
🔸 Cooperation and benchmarking: We are committed to continue working safely and demand the same commitment from our partners through the effective implementation of safe work procedures, incident analysis, and learning-sharing tools.
🔸 Training and education to our team members so they can work safely.
🔸 Implementation of safety observations, audits & inspections.
We believe that excellent business performance and sustainable success go hand in hand with excellent H&S performance. On the contrary, H&S incidents can cause significant production disruptions, customer dissatisfaction, reputation damage, and increased costs.
Our team’s safety is very important to us. especially as we continue to expand. Here's to a healthy, safer, and brighter future!
