Moncler invests extensive time and energy in the management of occupational health and safety in an effort to minimise any risk of accidents. Even through the Group’s business is not high-risk, it adopts a preventive approach.
Before a new workplace is opened, whether it is an office or a store, occupational health and safety risks are carefully evaluated through in-depth audits.
Offices and stores already in operation in Italy are subject to various compliance checks and, where necessary, an improvement plan is drawn up. This process will be extended to other Moncler workplaces over the next years.
In 2015, annual audit plan activities,
involving documentary analyses and workplace inspections, primarily concerned checks on maintenance work performed, the identification and verification of any risks and compliance with statutory requirements. Corrective measures were then identified and implemented for any instances of non-compliance found.
In Italy, Moncler organises regular safety meetings with company representatives, specialist physicians, prevention and protection officers and workers’ safety representatives. The meetings, which usually do not give rise to any formal agreement, focus on the discussion of risk assessment analyses and outcomes, injury rates, training and the personal protection equipment used.
In 2015 workplace accidents were kept to a minimum through the careful management of work spaces (offices, stores, outlets and logistics hub), an ongoing information and awareness- raising campaign focused on prevention and the monitoring of improvement measures and their effective implementation. Despite the sharp increase in the number of employees, the number of workplace injuries has fallen compared to the previous year, as has the incidence rate and the frequency rate; the number of travel-to-work injuries instead showed an increase.
No fatal accidents were reported involving employees or contractors.
Occupational diseases are illnesses that are a direct consequence of work, caused by the gradual and progressive harmful effect of activities performed. Occupational diseases are monitored by the Group in order to identify any workplace conditions that may have contributed to their insurgence, check for the presence of any residual workplace risks and implement any corrective actions needed to prevent them from re-occurring.
In 2015 no cases of occupational diseases were reported. For personnel in Italy who are exposed to specific risk factors, regular health checks continued to be performed, in application of specific health protocols, defined on the basis of the risk, with supplementary specialist visits organised as necessary.
Since 2010 the Group has also focused attention on issues of work-related stress, as part of an inclusive approach to employee welfare.
Monitoring activities in 2015 were concentrated in particular on the Trebaseleghe (Padua – Italy) corporate office. Assessments of work-related stress formed the starting point for risk management planning, involving prevention initiatives or the implementation of organisational and operational measures.
All injury indicators, reported in the table below, are constantly monitored and measured.
Prevention initiatives promoted by the Group involve training people.
In 2015, over 3,400 hours of occupational health and safety training were delivered.
In Italy, both classroom and web-based training was delivered, focused on the prevention of work-related risks, in particular common dangers related to electrical and chemical risks, strain, noise, the use of video terminals, load handling, etc.
People tasked with specific occupational health and safety responsibilities, such as emergency and first aid officers and workers’ safety representatives, were provided with specific training programmes.
Moncler’s commitment to promoting and protecting the health of its employees reaches beyond the workplace and occupational risks.
This is the driver and goal of various training and information
initiatives organised by the Company, with the support of the Umberto Veronesi Foundation, concerning cancer prevention, heart health and nutritional
