What does this mean to me as an employee?
Safety is everyone’s responsibility: Everyone shares the responsibility for a safe and healthy workplace, and we each have a role to play to make it happen.
As an employee, I comply with local legal requirements and promptly report any H&S related incident to the local organization. I take responsibility for my own safety and that of my colleagues. If I am required to operate machinery or drive a JTI vehicle, I must behave safely and responsibly and be mindful of potential hazards. I must not operate machinery, drive or carry out any other activity that may result in harm to myself or others if my judgment or performance is impaired.
As a manager, I am responsible for ensuring compliance with local and JTI H&S requirements. I ensure that employees have the required competencies, training and protective equipment to work safely. If a health and safety incident or risk is brought to my attention, I address it immediately.
