4 The Group’s Human Resources Policy Safety in the Workplace 4.1. Safety in the Workplace Safety in the workplace is one of the key elements of the excellence initiative embodied by the Faurecia Excellence System (FES). It forms part of the personal respect requirement which every facility must satisfy. Faurecia’s health and safety at work policy hinges, on a daily basis, on two key objectives: ensuring the protection of employees’ health and improving the safety of employees in the workplace. Thanks to our constant commitment to enhancing occupational safety and working conditions, we have consistently reduced the number of work-related accidents since 2003. To speed up this trend, in 2010, Faurecia launched a Breakthrough Safety Plan. In two years, the Breakthrough Safety Plan 2010 has enabled us to achieve the highly ambitious objective of reducing the frequency of work-related accidents with lost time per million working hours by one third. 4.1.1. WORKPLACE SAFETY INDICATORS Analyses of changes in the frequency rate of work-related injuries are performed in order to measure the effectiveness of actions carried out in this area. To guarantee the same level of workplace safety for all employees, temporary workers are included in the same manner as permanent staff in the following indicators: c the Group’s excellence indicators are FR0t and FR1t. FR0t measures the number of work-related accidents involving a Faurecia employee or temporary worker, with lost time, per million hours worked. FR1t measures the number of workrelated accidents involving a Faurecia employee or temporary worker, with or without lost time, per million hours worked across the Group. Both indicators are calculated on a rolling, six-month basis; c first aid procedures are now monitored in all Autonomous Production units using the Faurecia QRCI 8D (Quick Response Continuous Improvement) method of problem resolution. This has enabled production managers to take greater responsibility for accident investigations and to increase their responsiveness; c after each FR0t and FR1t accident, a QRCI 8D analysis is performed using quality problem solving best practices to ensure that the root causes of the accident are understood, that corrective actions have been effectively applied and that preventative measures are implemented and shared across the various sites.
