Lundbeck employs more than 5,500 people worldwide and we promise every one of them healthy and safe working conditions. Managers and employees collaborate to create the best working conditions with support from internal specialists. Lundbeck’s Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) Policy sets out a common framework for ensuring sound physical and mental work conditions globally.
These actions underpin our commitment to the UN Global Compact and show our contribution to UN Sustainable Development Goal 8, Decent Work and Economic Growth.
We systematically assess the hazards that could arise in a working situation and perform risk assessments before making any physical or organisational changes. We also provide training and advice to managers and employees to help them enhance their physical and mental work environment.
We include indicators for the physical and mental work environment in our anonymous annual employee satisfaction survey. We take corrective and preventive actions through workshop discussions and follow-up meetings.
Our dedication to brain health extends to our own working environment. We prioritise a healthy work-life balance and encourage continuous dialogue between employees and managers to prevent work-related stress.
The physical work environmental varies with job functions.
We are certified to the OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety Management System at our corporate headquarters and within our larger research, development and manufacturing facilities. Through this we set defined annual targets and deliver prioritised and continuous improvements.
Through systematic root cause analysis, we minimise workrelated accidents, and conduct internal audits to monitor system performance and identify improvement areas. Senior management review system performance annually.
Our health and safety principles extend to our contract manufacturers and we conduct regular audits at their facilities.
