At AbbVie, we believe in the inherent dignity of every human being
and respect individual rights as set out in the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights. We recognize our responsibility as an employer and
responsible corporate citizen to do all we can to prevent, mitigate
and remedy any adverse human rights impacts across our value chain.
Our Commitment to Human Rights describes how we
promote respect for all people, including our employees, contractors,
suppliers and patients.
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.
