Although Corporate Responsibility is often most thought of as caring for the environment and giving back to local communities, we firmly believe that it also means taking responsibility for the health and safety of our team members, contractors and visitors, and working to safeguard them against work-related accidents and illnesses. It is West’s policy to comply with all applicable health and safety laws and regulations, and we are committed to designing and operating our facilities to provide a healthy and safe workplace.
Our HSE and Sustainability Policy is displayed prominently at all sites and is a visual reminder of our commitment to the health and safety of our team members and our respect of the environment. It also reinforces the expectations of our team members and visitors: everyone plays a role in the HSE and Sustainability process.
We firmly believe in the importance of cultivating a culture of safety where every team member has a shared responsibility and is engaged in safety. This mindset is led by Eric Green, our President and CEO, as well as many of our leaders, who begin each meeting with a message about safety.
Each facility at West has a trained and dedicated Health and Safety committee comprised of a variety of team members at the site. The responsibility of each of these committees is to:
We also continue to work to improve best practice sharing across our global network. We understand that if an incident or “near miss” happens at one site, there may be a risk of it being a potential issue at another site. Our Health and Safety Committee members use a variety of channels to share information, helping to ensure best practices for incident prevention are understood and are being communicated.
West’s HSE Management System, which was first introduced in 2017 and provides a global framework and uniform approach to key areas of HSE, continues to gain momentum. Eight foundational elements of this system were successfully implemented in 2018, including HSE Gemba walks, Behavior-Based Safety Programs, Near- Miss Reporting, and enhanced Incident Investigations and Root Cause Analysis. These foundational elements are tied to leading indicators and utilize proactive activities and controls to help reduce and/or eliminate accidents.

Recently, we posted the first part of our Corporate Responsibility Report blog series focusing on Environmental Responsibility. This series will cover each of West’s key areas of focus where we feel we can make the greatest impact: Environmental Responsibility, Health and Safety, Compliance and Ethics, Diversity, Philanthropy and Quality. In this part of the series, we are focusing on Health and Safety, and the proactive approach West is taking in this area. <br />
The health and safety of our team members has always been West’s top priority. This mindset is supported by our Board of Directors and is led by our President and CEO, Eric Green, who often reiterates his belief that “one incident is one too many.”
<p>We are proud to announce our inaugural Corporate Responsibility Report. West’s commitment to sustainability and remaining active in the areas where we live and work are integral to West’s culture.

Deep-rooted in West’s culture, the health and safety of our team members has always been our top priority. And this remains consistent and strong despite the challenges brought on by COVID-19. Recently, our manufacturing plant in Sri City, India achieved 2,000 recordable incident free days, which is a tremendous milestone that demonstrates the team’s collaboration and commitment to safety at all levels of staff, from management to the plant floor.
We are very pleased to announce that two of our sites in Asia Pacific have received two additional safety accreditations recently, which further demonstrates and acknowledges our team’s continuous commitment to health, safety, and environment throughout West and the industry.
