Our systematic occupational health and safety process, with procedures for safety rounds, action plans, and follow-up, is thoroughly implemented and a natural part of our work. Risk and consequence assessments are carried out for all changes, and close collaboration with unions helps ensure any risks are detected at an early stage.
We have zero tolerance for workplace accidents leading to absence. By aiming to achieve increased reporting of incidents, we improve our opportunities to prevent accidents. We are currently reviewing definitions and metrics for our work with health and safety in our Swedish operations. From financial year 2024, reporting will take place according to the new definitions, in line with global standards. One important change is that we will then be able to distinguish between different types of accidents more clearly, which will simplify both reporting and follow-up.
A couple of years ago, a large-scale modernization of the packaging line was carried out in the Czech operations, which has improved both quality and food safety, but has also led to a better working environment. The Czech operations have been a member of SEDEX (the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) since 2017, and share data with collaboration partners through this system. During the last year, a social audit was carried out according to the SEDEX audit system SMETA, and the results were good.
