Zero fatal accidents at PUMA and within suppliers; average injury rate for suppliers below 2 (interim target 2017) and PUMA below 1.5
Relates to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3
Examples for the 10FOR20 Action Plan:
Ensuring safe working conditions for our own employees and hundreds of thousands of indirect employees at our manufacturing partners is an ethical imperative but it also makes good business sense. In 2015, we set a target of zero fatal accidents and also aimed to reduce the number of work-related accidents.
Apart from our ongoing auditing program, which includes occupational health and safety assessments, we implemented our Building Safety Program in countries where we identified a risk. We have also set up professional risk assessments at all our major manufacturing partners.
From 2015 till the end of 2019 our building safety assessment program covered the following countries:
|Bangladesh||11||Part of our ongoing membership of the Bangladesh Accord|
|India||5||In partnership with AsiaInspection|
|Indonesia||4||In partnership with AsiaInspection|
|Pakistan||6||In partnership with Elevate|
In that context we are happy to report that none of our suppliers have been involved in any structural building safety incident or factory fire since 2015.
We continue to check the availability of health and safety risk assessments and function health and safety committees at our suppliers through our audit program.
We are happy to report that our efforts have resulted in zero fatal accidents for the years 2018 and 2019, as well as slightly reduced accident rates at our core suppliers.
|Country||Injury Rate 2017||Injury Rate 2018||Injury Rate 2019|
As we believe that every accident is one too many, we aim to further reduce accident rates as part of our 2025 sustainability strategy and targets.
