Workplace safety is one way we live our commitment to human rights. We provide comprehensive workplace safety training for all employees, as appropriate for their environment.

Zero. Believe It. Achieve It. That’s our guiding philosophy for workplace safety. It’s our belief that every environment, health and safety incident is preventable if each person adopts a preventative mindset. And we’ve seen results. Our recordable incident rate and lost time incident rate are among the lowest in the industry, based on data from the Pharmaceutical Safety Group, an industry consortium.
