Dialight’s products protect and improve the quality of life of people working in industrial and hazardous environments around the world. Safety is critical to the Group and is a major priority for management. The Board has endorsed the inclusion of the Group’s accident frequency rate as one of its non-financial KPIs on page 18.
The Group manages its activities to avoid causing unnecessary or unacceptable risks to the health and safety of its employees in the workplace or to the public. Health and safety processes, procedures and reporting are closely monitored to ensure a safe working environment for our employees and visitors to our sites. Our three main production sites in Ensenada, Mexico, Roxboro, North Carolina, US and Penang, Malaysia, all use an occupational health and safety management system and are accredited to BS OHSAS 18001.
Health and safety performance is regularly reviewed throughout all levels of the Group. Each site must have an independent health and safety review every three years, with a view to ensuring a consistent approach in the quality of reporting, adherence to internal processes and procedures, adequate reporting and investigation and to further promote our health and safety culture. We thoroughly review the root cause of any accidents to ensure that we take preventative measures, including further training for, and education of, our employees.
