For decades Sonoco has worked hard at creating the safest work environment possible. The traditional injury metrics consistently place Sonoco near the top among our peers and one of the best in all of the segments we work in. There are many Sonoco operations that have gone years, and some even decades, without a recordable injury. However, the real story are not the injury free milestones, it is how our operations get there.
Leadership that invests in safety and employees that are engaged in reducing exposures across our operations make the difference. From our Operations Safety Council to our site level Safety Pillar Teams everyone has a responsibility to lead safety. Thousands of employees around the world are directly engaged in safety improvement activities. We have a specific mission to eliminate Life Changing Events in our operations and every site prepares an annual safety action plan to achieve targeted risk reductions. Our LCE program highlights programs that we know are high risk including Energy Isolation, Mobile Equipment, Pedestrian Pathway, Electrical Safe Work Practices, Confined Space, Working at Heights and Machine Safety.
Our Operations Safety Council consist of our top 30 operations executives that work to lead improvement and provide governance for our safety efforts. Each business unit has its own Safety Council and every site has a Safety Pillar Team. These groups are supported by a dedicated group of safety professionals inducing hundreds of safety coordinators working at our operations worldwide.
The Sonoco Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council seeks to create a diverse workforce, treated equitably in an inclusive environment by sponsoring and guiding activities of several affinity teams and fostering diversity, equity and inclusion education, awareness and communication throughout Sonoco.
Sonoco will continue to consciously provide support to programs that attract diverse associates—because bringing new perspectives into our community brings new ideas to the table.
