OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY AND WORKPLACE WELLNESS REPORTING GUIDELINES FOR A GLOBAL WORKFORCE
A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR INTERNATIONALLY OPERATING EMPLOYERS
As the field of global Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) and workplace wellness is evolving, so is our understanding of its impact on business and its place in sustainability reporting. Lost working time, treatment and rehabilitation fees are estimated to cost global business $2.8 trillion a year1, and the business sector has recognised the increasing value created in taking a more holistic approach to health.
In response to this, the International SOS Foundation and Sancroft joined forces to provide a practical guide; ‘Maximising the value of Occupational Health & Safety and workplace wellness reporting for a global workforce: A practical guide for internationally operating employers’. The guide aims to provide OH&S, sustainability and corporate reporting professionals with practical guidance on how to improve OH&S reporting and practice. It was informed by interviews with leading multinational organisations, alongside engagement with leaders in the field and analysis of publicly available information.
The guide investigates:
The value of reporting strategically, operationally and organisationally, and its evolution to become common practice among multinational corporations
The changing face of OH&S, considering emerging trends and their implications for reporting
Practical guidance on how to report well, including a comparative analysis of existing global reporting frameworks
Insight into good practice from experts and practitioners including from Newmont, Heineken, Anglo American, Vitality and Lafarge Holcim
