Our aim is to create an injury-free work environment and are intensifying our efforts to improve our training and workplace practice by putting safety first.

Our main safety indicator is our reportable incident rate (RIR), defined as the number of reportable injuries and illnesses per million hours worked. Over the last three years, we’ve seen our safety performance improve by 46%. In 2022 we reduced the rate from 7.5 to 5.8, down 23% and ahead of our goal to achieve an improvement of more than 20%, year-on-year.

We’ve set an RIR target of 4.8 in 2023. But by 2025, at the end of our Growth with Purpose strategy, we are aiming to bring that rate to below 3.0, putting us in the top quartile of safety performance.

As well as tracking injuries and illnesses, we also engage teams to identify near misses and hazards so that safety can be improved proactively, and learnings shared.

We also use Group-wide health and safety standards and run regular training sessions as well as communication campaigns, to highlight best practice and make sure common minimum standards are applied everywhere.

In 2022, we ran the first ever Dupont safety survey to test perceptions and attitudes to safety across our operations, with an impressive 79% of staff, from all regions, making submissions.
