            Safety and Sustainability

            Welcome to the 2015 DuluxGroup Safety and Sustainability Report. During the year we continued to make steady progress in improving management of significant risks to prevent harm, with good outcomes achieved in several areas.

             

            Strategic Focus
            Prevention of disasters such as a major fire or explosion from chemical manufacturing (process safety) and handling of dangerous goods
            Key 2015 Outcome
            No serious incidents or near misses involving chemical process safety or dangerous goods
            Strategic Focus
            Prevention of fatalities from common significant hazards such as forklifts, working at height and driving
            Key 2015 Outcome
            A 12% increase in hazard and near miss reporting, which represents the five consecutive years of improvement. This reporting is a foundation of fatality prevention and in 2015 we remained fatality free
            Strategic Focus
            Prevention of non-fatal injuries and illnesses from everyday hazards such as manual handling, sharp objects and exposure to noise or chemicals
            Key 2015 Outcome
            Good improvement across the former Alesco businesses, including B&D and Lincoln Sentry where injury rates were 75% and 64% lower respectively when compared with acquisition in 2013. This was offset by an increase in injuries from non-fatal risks (e.g. manual handling) across the heritage businesses, where implementation of new improvement plans has commenced. Workers compensation claims declined 20%, average claim costs declined 26%, and premiums were sustained at 35% less than two years ago
            Strategic Focus
            Prevention of community and environmental harm from all activities, including product stewardship, resource efficiency and land protection
            Key 2015 Outcome
            Continued product stewardship improvements (e.g. product reformulation, packaging redesign) to prevent potential harm to our customers, consumers and the environment. Further operating site resource efficiency improvements, including a 6% reduction in waste to landfill and a 6% reduction in water consumption
