Honoring the UN World Day for Safety and Health at Work
Today we acknowledge the UN’s commitment and dedication to promoting safety and wellness efforts in the workplace around the globe.
For Mosaic, Acting Responsibly includes being accountable to our teams for their well-being, onsite and in the community. In the last year, adjusting to new distractions at work and home was a challenge, but Mosaic employees have come together in inspiring ways to support their communities and each other through this unique time. We instituted new safety and scheduling procedures to minimize Covid-19 exposure, including requiring masks, temperature screening and many other proactive measures. While we are encouraged for the future, we continue to enforce these important protocols to protect each other.
We employ more than 12,000 dedicated, hard-working people at Mosaic. We understand the nature of our industry and operations can come with risks, which is why we support and foster a culture of worker safety and wellness.
In conjunction with Mosaic’s strategic priorities and our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Performance Targets, strengthening our management system continues to be a critical priority. In 2020, we rolled out our environmental, health, and safety (EHS) 2030 Vision to represent our focus areas: technology, worker wellness, and social responsibility – all anchored by our management system to ensure we’re accounting for potential risks and putting mitigation in place. By prioritizing risk reduction to drive toward zero safety and environmental incidents we put employees in the driver's seat to identify risk reduction opportunities and implement solutions. More than 1,700 projects have been completed since the program began in 2019.
Last year, we developed the EHS Risk Reduction Recognition program to celebrate these important projects with our teams. While we are eager to celebrate in person, both last year and this year’s awards ceremony will be held virtually to promote important projects that have contributed to moving beyond compliance, reducing impacts to the environment, and creating long-term, sustainable positive impacts for Mosaic’s workforce.
Learn more about last year’s winners and look out for more information on the 2020 EHS Risk Reduction Recognition recipients in May.
These projects are in addition to the important NextGEN work that helps to implement transformative technological change that in addition to cost savings and efficiencies provides new, safer methods of doing business for our workforce. The innovation and ingenuity of Mosaic employees and their commitment to safety was reinforced this year by the National Safety Council, which honored us with the 2020 Robert W. Campbell Award - the prestigious, international award celebrates our 10-year journey in EHS excellence.
We continue to celebrate these important milestones at Mosaic, but we believe our journey to zero injuries and incidents is always ongoing and should be top of mind for all of our teams. Learn more about our ESG Performance Targets and our approach to worker wellness and safety.
