April 28th is World Day for Safety and Health at Work. To coincide with the event, we are launching our “Stop. Think. Act.” campaign in our EMEA operations to emphasize the importance of our teams operating at the highest levels of health and safety. “Stop. Think. Act.” is an easy-to-remember outreach message that has enormous potential to prevent avoidable workplace incidents and injuries. It comprises three simple actions that will further improve safety standards across our operations, ensuring the behavior of teams is focused on constant vigilance on the shop floor.

“We are proud to launch this campaign, which complements our wide-ranging global program dedicated to health and safety,” said Florent Gourven, Quality EHS and World-Class Performance Director at Crown. “It is a long-term strategy that reinforces our unwavering commitment to what we believe is our most important asset – our employees. The health and welfare of our team members is our top priority, and “Stop. Think. Act.” will feed directly into our Total Safety Culture, which is integral to our operating philosophy worldwide.”

The “Stop. Think. Act.” campaign is one of the means by which we are fostering a Total Safety Culture here at Crown, which requires employee accountability and proactivity at every level. From a reporting standpoint, we have implemented state-of-the-art software across our global operations that enables us to standardize data collection and analysis and track performance in real time. In addition, multiple programs including Safety Awareness for Employees (SAFE), Safety Circles and Human Factor Training, provide a continuous dialogue between EHS managers and plant teams around safety, flagging any potential hazards created by either a task or individual behavior and identifying solutions to mitigate risks. These measures together help to ensure our facilities are addressing safety diligently and consistently.

This new initiative is just one of the steps we are taking to reduce Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) 20% by 2025. The goal is part of the Working Together pillar of our robust Twentyby30 sustainability program. Read more about the actions we are taking to reach our target here.
