Health and safety – Performance in 2013/14
We are working hard to instil a culture of safe behaviour and strive towards our objective of zero fatalities.
We have a wide range of programmes and systems to tackle our key risks, often specifically tailored to the particular needs of our markets. Despite this we greatly regret to report that 12 people died while undertaking work on behalf of Vodafone last year. Strengthening programmes to target occupational road risk – one of our biggest risk areas and the main cause of these fatalities – remains a major focus for all markets. However, through increased awareness and a strong focus on managing our top five safety risks, our injury rates have continued to decline in 2013/14.
