World Day for Safety and Health at Work: the 5 Golden Rules to guide behaviour in workplaces28 April 2023
Every year, April 28 is celebrated as World Day of Safety and Health at Work, an opportunity to assess and analyse the various issues related to the importance of accident and disease prevention in the workplace. IBSA Farmaceutici has always paid particular attention to this issue, as part of both its corporate life and its commitment to the well-being and health of People in general, and primarily its collaborators.
Over the last few years, the company has implemented an effective health and safety management process through the project #failamossagiusta (“Make the right move”), in the belief that a system that includes a proactive and real participation of everyone is an essential element for protecting the workplace and safeguarding the health and safety of workers.
For this reason, IBSA Farmaceutici has decided to maximise its commitment in this area, setting itself the ambitious goal of obtaining – within the next two years – the voluntary ISO14001 and ISO45001 certifications: two standards which precisely concern the compliance, on the part of a company, with the environmental management and the occupational health and safety management systems. It’s a way to reiterate that safety is not just the mere compliance with the law or with a set of written rules, but an actual corporate value, to be promoted and protected. Furthermore, on the occasion of the World Day for Safety and Health at Work, IBSA Farmaceutici’s HSE Team has decided to launch the GOLDEN RULES, 5 simple tips that must always guide our behaviour at the workplace.
These are valuable suggestions that can be applied not only in the workplace, but in every moment and in every situation of our personal and social life, making everyday life safer. When these simple rules become part of our habits and our smallest behaviours, then we will have succeeded in creating a true safety culture.
