Safety

We consider that the safety and wellbeing of our employees is as important to our business as the quality of our products.

Our fundamental approach to safety is that all injuries, whether they are caused by unsafe processes, equipment or behaviours are preventable, and our aim is to have zero injury operations.

In 2010  Calsonic Kansei Europe launched a Zero Injuries Programme (ZIP) which aims to change the fundamental safety culture of our organisation. We recognise that our goal to achieve zero injuries is not easily accomplished, but working as one team, we have started a 5 year plan which will take us on the journey to achieve this goal.

We recognise that compliance is an integral part of our corporate governance. It not only protects the interests of our company and stakeholders, but gives our employees confidence and pride in working for Calsonic Kansei.

Our compliance framework covers the following 3 main areas:

  • Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements;
  • Compliance with company policies, regulations and procedures;
