Health and Safety
We keep ourselves and others safe and healthy so that we can reach our full potential.
We make the well-being of our people and visitors our top priority. Nothing is more important than health and safety in the workplace. Keeping everyone safe is a shared responsibility. We look out for one another in our daily activities, to prevent injury and accidents, and we take appropriate action if we see anything that could cause harm. Practicing good safety habits protects us, makes our work environment more comfortable and allows us to focus on delivering exceptional products and customer service.

QUESTION: A production line colleague asked me twice this week to cover for him while he took quick, unscheduled breaks. His new medication is occasionally making him feel dizzy. I told him I was worried the side effects might put him and others at risk. He said there was nothing to worry about — he would soon adjust to the medication. Do I need to take any action?
ANSWER: We all have an obligation to act if we become aware of a potential health and safety risk. Failing to do so would be a violation of this Code. You should advise your colleague to speak with his supervisor, who may consider a temporary reassignment of duties or other accommodation. You should let him know that if he’s unwilling to raise the issue, you and others are obliged to do so. We respect everyone’s right to privacy, but safety is paramount.
