Workplace Health and Safety

Full Accountability

CSL Behring business unit and site leaders are accountable for health and safety in the workplace. We employ dedicated Environment, Health, Safety & Sustainability (EHS2) teams at all our manufacturing sites. Local executive management and the Senior Director, Global EHS2 monitor Health and Safety performance. Consolidated performance reviews are conducted quarterly by the Corporate Risk Management Committee and semi-annually by the Human Resources and Remuneration Committee and the Board of CSL Limited, CSL Behring’s parent company. CSL Behring’s commitment to health and safety is articulated in our Code of Responsible Business Practice.

Adhering to Globally Recognized Standards

Our internal EHS2 Management System is consistent with the requirements of various globally recognized standards on Occupational Safety and Health, including AS/NZS 4801:2001, ISO 45001:2018, OHSAS 18001:2007, and ANSI Z10-2012, and goes beyond compliance to provide the flexibility to develop a sustainable safety culture within CSL Behring. We promote safety, health and well-being in the workplace and appreciate the value of work/life balance. Our health and well-being programs take many forms, from onsite fitness centers, yoga classes and workplace meditation facilities, to lectures on health topics and sponsored sporting events and teams. In addition to promoting employee well-being, these programs also contribute to a more productive working environment. We report our injury-illness performance as Frequency Rates (per 1,000,000 hours) for Medical Treatment Incidents, Lost Time Incidents and Days Lost. Health & Safety performance trends for CSL are detailed in the section "Providing a Positive Working Environment for Our People" of Our Corporate Responsibility Report.
