EMPLOYEE SAFETY, HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Our commitment to ensuring a safe working environment across all operations and to protecting the health and well-being of our employees. We recognise the need to create a positive, empowering and safe work environment to enable our people to brew excellence, and thus have made the safety, health and well-being of our employees our foremost priority. This is in line with our commitment to a ZERO Accidents Culture, which forms part of our wider TTZAB programme.
In 2022, we executed initiatives to improve health and safety across the workplace through Safety Leadership Training for all people managers. So far, 54% of our employees have been trained on health and safety standards. We also provided our employees with bite-sized information on safety and wellness via our Monthly Learning Bites, a one-hour learning session on various topics, to embed awareness of health, safety and wellness across our organisation.
In addition, we remain guided by our Health and Safety Policy and adhere to all the relevant rules and regulations including the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 (Act 514), Factories and Machinery Act 1967 (Act 139) and the Fire Services Act 1988 (Act 341). Our Health and Safety Policy includes five important Life Saving Rules pertaining to safety on the road that are mandatory for our employees, contractors, temporary workers and supply chain to adhere to, to ensure their own safety as well as the safety of the community.
Year after year, we also make it a point to eliminate Lost-Time Accidents (LTA) across our operations. It is our ambition to achieve ZERO LTA by 2030 and since January 2019, we have achieved a total of 1,452 days of ZERO LTA as of 31 December 2022.
Additionally, we increased our efforts to embed good driving habits among our sales employees who drive as part of their job scope via a Defensive Driving Training programme and a new smartphone application.
