Our SafeAgri programme aims to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries from Glencore Agriculture’s operations and projects.
One of Glencore Agriculture’s core priorities is safeguarding the health and safety of all those who work for us. Our health and safety performance has improved materially in recent years and, supported by our SafeAgri programme, we are committed to improving our operations further.
SafeAgri is based on Glencore’s SafeWork initiative. It brings together all our managers, employees and contractors to focus on reducing fatalities and serious injuries in Glencore Agriculture’s operations and projects. It is based on two fundamental components: life saving behaviours and fatal hazard protocols.
Between 2013 and 2015, our Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) improved by 51% and the Total Recordable Injury Frequncy Rate (TRIFR) by 72%. There were zero fatalities in 2015.*
We also implement a safety improvements strategy across diverse and dispersed operations post acquisitions.
