Occupational Health and Safety

Management Team and Management System

The core values of Yihai Kerry clearly define the management concept of "Health and Safety and Harmonious Sharing". We established a production safety responsibility system for all employees, and a comprehensive occupational health and safety management system supported by a comprehensive safety process of production, with the overall framework of "Safety and Health Policy", "Safety and Health Guidelines", and "Safety and Health Standards". In addition, with the update of national laws and regulations, we will review and improve our safety and health management system regularly.


The Group Safety Committee is composed of the core management of the Group and the corresponding professional and technical leaders. Based on the operation and management status of the Company's plants, the Group Safety Work Objective and Work Plan are formulated to guide the plants to implement safety management in a standardized and efficient manner.

 

We has established a two-tier coordinated EHS management organizational structure from the group to plant level. The Group EHS plans the overall management of production safety, and the plant sets up a special EHS department with full-time and part-time production safety management personnel, which clarifies the safety responsibilities at all levels of the plants and works on standardized and refined management of production safety.

 

We guides its plants to manage systematically according to the ISO 45001 occupational health and safety management system standard; 64.6% of the Company's plants obtained ISO45001 system certification in 2021. We will continue to encourage more of its plants to obtain the relevant system certification.
