Health and safety
Within Mowi Lemmer, every employee is entitled to a safe and healthy workplace. Mowi Lemmer management ensures that each employee is provided with the necessary materials to maintain a safe environment for food production and that enable them to use their skills to maintain effective food safety practices. Health and safety are essential to our families and the global communities in which we operate. Our global Health & Safety policy establishes the global fundamentals for Health and Safety commitment, standards and expectations at all Mowi business units in an effort to strive for zero accidents and promote an environment of continuous improvement.
Our BrainSafe global safety program is designed to empower our employees to take control of their own safety. We believe the best results can be achieved through a holistic approach, encompassing all areas - person, environment and practice - but with the most crucial element being the employees and their safety mindset. Safety must be the top priority in the minds of all our employees, as we all want to go home safely at the end of the day. Mowi employees are expected to embrace and apply the following BrainSafe core principles:
- Be safe: Make safe choices so that we can continue to live life to the full
- Be aware: Maximize attention to identify and manage potential hazards
- Be responsible: Consciously choosing our attitudes and using helpful attitudes in relation to safety
- Be vocal: Consciously influencing the safety culture in which we work
Ambient noise and hearing protection
Due to the ambient noise in the production environment, our employees and visitors to the production areas are obliged to wear earplugs or otoplastics to protect their hearing.
Food safety culture
Mowi's management attaches great importance to the "food safety culture"; various ways of encouraging the creation of a confidential environment are stimulated, in which employees can easily report incidents or doubts about food safety. The aim is for employees to report (possible) incidents with regard to food safety, quality and legislation more quickly and to ensure that management takes immediate action to stimulate this and provides an adequate solution as soon as possible. As a result, continuous food safety awareness will become second nature and an inseparable part of Mowi Lemmer's corporate culture.
Code of Conduct and Whistleblower Channel
Mowi is committed to high ethical standards in our global business practices, and we expect our employees to make our Code of Conduct a personal commitment. The Code of Conduct sets the standards of behaviour which we can expect from one another, and which external parties can expect from us. Abiding by the Code of Conduct is an important element in our ability to engender trust in our company. We expect our suppliers to also comply with our Code of Conduct. The full Code of Conduct is available on our corporate website mowi.com.
The Code of Conduct also includes topics about whistleblowing. We believe that openness, transparency and good communication promote a better culture. Our whistleblower channel facilitates reporting concerns about potential compliance issues, in relation to both laws and regulations and our own Code of Conduct, covering the areas of environment, human and labour rights, equality and diversity, health and safety, business ethics and anti-corruption, conflicts of interest, prevent discrimination and ensure professional behaviour. The whistleblower channel is managed by an independent third party and all notifications are handled confidentially.
Our employees regularly participate in training with regard to safety at work, with regard to both personal safety and food safety.
