THE NEW MONCLER INVESTOR RELATIONS APP IS NOW AVAILABLE
Among its initiatives to protect and promote health and safety in the workplace, Moncler implements an efficient management system as per OHSAS 18001 international standard. This commitment is clearly stated in the Occupational Health and Safety Management Policy, which was shared with all Group employees worldwide in 2017. The Policy sets the health and safety principles and guidelines to be implemented in every sphere of activity and provides for:
• the dynamic and preventive assessment of activities, so as to eliminate any root causes of risk or, should this not be feasible, control risks using the best available techniques;
• the continuous improvement of every activity that may impact safety;
• the enhancement of knowledge, competence, and awareness of all employees through targeted training and practice.
In 2017, Moncler obtained the OHSAS 18001 certification for its production site in Romania and for part of its offices and stores in Europe (France, Germany, United Kingdom, and Switzerland); it also maintained the certification for all its offices and stores in Italy, which were certified in 2016 and account for over 2,000 employees (about 59% of the workforce). The Company aims to extend OHSAS 18001 certification to all offices and stores worldwide by 2019.
Moncler invests a lot of thought and considerable time and energy in the management of occupational health and safety, in an effort to minimise any risk of accidents.
Although the Group’s business is not high-risk, Moncler adopts a preventive approach. Before the opening of any new workplace – be it an office or a store – occupational health and safety risks are carefully evaluated through in-depth audits. Offices and stores already in operation are regularly subjected to compliance checks through document analyses and workplace inspections (verification of work environments and equipment), with improvement plans drawn up as necessary.
This monitoring process, originally implemented in Italy alone, was extended in 2017 to the places of work in France, Great Britain, Germany, and Switzerland, and is expected to be gradually implemented in other countries in the coming years.
In 2017, several on-site inspections to verify employee health and safety were also carried out (by both in-house staff and external bodies) at the production site in Romania, in view of OHSAS 18001 certification.
In Italy, Moncler organises regular safety meetings with Company representatives, specialist physicians, prevention and protection officers, and workers’ safety representatives. These meetings focus on risk assessment analyses and out- comes, injury rates, training, and personal protection equipment.
In 2017, workplace accidents were kept to a minimum through the careful management of work spaces, ongoing information and awareness initiatives centred on prevention, and the monitoring of the proper implementation of improvement measures.
No fatal accidents were reported during the year involving employees or contractors.
Occupational diseases are a direct consequence of work, caused by the worker’s exposure to the gradual and progressive harmful effect of the activities being performed. The Group monitors occupational diseases in order to identify any workplace conditions that may have contributed to their onset, assess any residual risks, and implement corrective measures as needed to prevent recurrence. In 2017, no cases of occupational diseases were reported.
In Italy, the Group continued to require personnel exposed to specific risk factors to undergo regular health checks, in application of specific health protocols defined on the basis of the risk, with supplementary specialist visits as needed.
All workplace accident indicators are continuously monitored and measured.
Since 2010, the Group has also focused on work-related stress as part of an inclusive approach to employee wellbeing. In 2015, a work-related stress assessment was carried out at the headquarters in Trebaseleghe (Padua, Italy), revealing that most of the offices were at low risk. That said, in 2016 the Company decided to implement an action plan nonetheless. The same assessment was then performed at the corporate offices in Milan (Italy), where the risk of work-related stress was also found to be low, and where, in 2017, Moncler also adopted an action plan.
10Incidence rate: (number of workplace injuries/total employees) x 1,000.
11Severity rate: (number of days lost due to workplace injuries/total hours worked) x 1,000.
12Frequency rate: (number of injuries/total hours worked) x 1,000,000.
13In 2017, the scope of reporting was signi cantly broadened, reaching 100% of the Group’s global workforce; data therefore cannot be compared with previous years.
Training its people is part of the prevention initiatives promoted by the Group.
In 2017, the Company delivered over 15,000 hours of training on occupational health and safety (15% more compared to 2016), of which more than 14,000 at the production site in Romania. Specific training programmes were developed and customised based on different roles and risk levels, so as to transfer the knowledge, skills, and values required to work safely. The majority of employees attended a training programme on general safety in the workplace, in keeping with legal provisions. With regard to people in positions of responsibility, additional training modules were specially designed for Company managers and officers, to improve monitoring and ensure that employees’ behaviours are in line with law provisions and Company regulations on occupational health and safety.
Moncler’s commitment to promoting and protecting the health of its employees goes beyond the workplace and occu- pational risks. This explains the meaning and purpose behind the various training and information initiatives organised by the Company, with the support of the Umberto Veronesi Foundation, on healthy lifestyles, the risks of smoking, and the importance of vaccination. The initiatives organised dur- ing the year took place in Italy, and involved approximately 420 people for a total of more than 2,500 hours of training.
Beyond the purpose of training, they were highly appreciated for being an important moment of interaction, giving employees the opportunity to voice their concerns and seek advice from highly-experienced specialists.
Alongside these initiatives, Moncler is committed to es- tablishing agreements with local outpatient clinics, to ensure employees have access to the best medical centres at the most affordable prices.
