We join the International Labour Organization (ILO) again in observing the annual World Day for Safety & Health at Work (WSD) on April 28, 2021. WSD promotes the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally, with this year’s spotlight focused on resilient OSH (Occupational Safety and Health) systems in order to face crises now and in the future.
A day of reinforcing positive safety and health culture
Complementing everyday efforts, Exyte will on this occasion re-engage our colleagues at all levels in dialogues and interesting activities about workplace safety and health. Activities include fun quizzes, sharing of thoughts by leaders, and the spurring of company-wide conversations across interactive chan-nels.
Exyte's COO, Roberto Penno shared his personal experience of Exyte's safety culture in his latest WSD video message, “I've seen with my own eyes colleagues caring for others, making improvements, and stepping up to do the right thing.“ He adds that safety is an ongoing commitment in this organization.
Strengthening Exyte‘s OSH system
Our safety processes and policies are adhered to at workplaces for the safety of our colleagues and part-ners as well as to safeguard our clients' projects and reputation.
Exyte's robust OSH system has allowed us to swiftly implement a global disease management plan in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. As we continue to regularly optimize our OSH best practices to an ever-changing world, Exyte has embarked on the review of its 5-year Incident Free Workplace (IFW) pro-gram.
