IPACKCHEM is committed to improve the female presence in its workforce. Within a few years, we went from 17% to 25% of female workers. Among managers, we have today 21% of women. We are putting some actions plans together to increase this rate in the next 5 years. For the 2023 International Women’s day, the global campaign theme is #EmbraceEquity.

The IPACKCHEM site in Cosmo – South Africa has achieved an outstanding milestone: 365 days without labor accidents! It was possible due to the commitment of all our staff to the Group policies and best-in-class principles on the Health and Safety approach. Among the main actions taken since the last incident, it is important to highlight the implementation of the Safety Day – one full day when the whole operation is stopped and specific sessions to discuss safety and health at the workplace happen. On top of that, the engagement of the leadership by doing the "Safety Gemba Walk" on a daily basis and continuous training for the workers has also directly contributed to this achievement. IPACKCHEM supports and works towards an injury-free workplace across the globe, and the results in South Africa corroborated to show that it is possible! #safetyfirst #healthandsafety #ipackchem

Safety Days @ IPACKCHEM GROUP #safety #team
Before restarting the activities after the festive holidays, some of our sites have organized Safety Days. Safety Days were introduced at IPACKCHEM GROUP as a good practice to not only improve the communication about Safety with our employees but also to convert into real actions our message of full commitment to a safer and healthier workplace.
Specific activities were realized this week in three of our sites: Paulinia (BR), Crewe (UK), and Murray (USA), with agendas covering topics like Unsafe conditions identification, the importance of the correct usage of PPEs, safety behaviors, mental health, and several team buildings activities.
The results of such practice have been collected over the years, and the very positive feedback received from our workforce is even more significant.
