Health & safety

The improvement of safety at the workplace is a top priority for Lindt & Sprüngli. Our long-term vision is zero lost time accidents.

A healthy and safe work environment is a major driver of employee satisfaction and motivation. By reducing workplace hazards we reduce absenteeism associated with lost time and resulting costs. In regular intervals, we conduct employee safety trainings to raise awareness and to strengthen the corporate culture. Caffarel is certified according to OHSAS 18001.

Health and Safety-Lindt & Sprüngli

All manufacturing, marketing and distribution companies in the Lindt & Sprüngli Group strictly adhere to the Group’s Health and Safety Policy. The cornerstones of this policy are the maintenance of safe and healthy working conditions, the proactive reduction of injury hazards, and the insistence that all employees are fully aware of their responsibility to follow safe working practices.

Our Health and Safety program is an established feature of our corporate culture. It is not only being implemented in an exemplary manner by our staff members, but also actively supported by our employees. In regular intervals, we conduct employee safety trainings to raise awareness and to strengthen the corporate culture. As a result, we have significantly reduced the number of occupational accidents in the Lindt & Sprüngli production companies. From 2008 to 2015, Lindt & Sprüngli production companies reduced the number of lost time accidents per 100,000 working hours by 87 %. Lindt & Sprüngli’s accident reporting scrutinizes all incidents and plans measures for future avoidance.
