The safeguarding of health and the fostering of a culture of workplace safety are priority objectives for Luxottica. To this end, the Company has introduced, and is continuously improving with cooperation from all involved, an organization model that favors the development of an open and constructive mentality in all our human resources and the maintenance of a safe working environment.
Workplace safety is not just a question of complying with the law but a moral responsibility.
This is the spirit with which Luxottica deals on a daily basis with safety issues and fosters a culture of safety through innovative training programs for all grades. Working environments and individual work stations are designed to be safe whatever the activity involved, from design to manufacturing, with a constant focus on prevention in terms of both accident prevention procedures and industrial hygiene and the physiological and comportmental aspects that may be involved in the occurrence of accidents and occupational diseases.
Prevention covers a range of regulations and measures adopted in all types of work to eliminate or reduce risks to people’s health and the environment. Such risks are identified and managed by the Company’s prevention and protection service.
There are a number of comportmental rules that all employees must abide by:
Prevention requires major investments and the cooperation of everyone to make them effective. In this context, safety management is an integral part of the organization and everyone has an active role to play: executives, managers, health & safety officers and operatives all work in synergy in order to work better and more safely.
Accident at work: any traumatic event occurring in the workplace that causes death or a physical disability involving absence from work for more than a day, excluding the day of the event itself.
Occupation disease: a harmful condition occurring in a gradually and non-traumatic manner and whose onset must be during and as a result of work.
Causes: causes of accidents include organizational failures, the unsuitability of technical conditions, environments, machines, plant or equipment, lack or inadequacy of signage or individual or collective protection devices, incorrect behavior by those suffering accidents or others.
