Lundbeck employs more than 5,600 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 preventative 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 environment varies by job function. While car safety is important in the sales organisation, industrial hygiene programmes are vital to eliminate or minimise the risk of injury or illness in our laboratories and manufacturing plants.
ISO 45001 is an international standard for health and safety at work developed by national and international standards committees independent of government. We are certified to the ISO 45001 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 work-related accidents and conduct internal audits to monitor system performance and identify areas for improvement. Senior management review system performance annually.
Our health and safety principles extend to our contract manufacturers and we conduct regular audits at their facilities.
ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 are international standards setting the requirements for Environment and Health & Safety Management Systems respectively. The standards can be applied to one system to enable businesses to identify and control all relevant impacts and hazards resulting from normal operations and abnormal situations and improve performance.
The system consists of written procedures and annual performance targets, communicated and integrated into daily operations via training. Compliance and improvements are evaluated by internal and external auditors and the business’ senior management reviews the overall system performance annually.

We pursue our business purpose guided by several pillars and our Code of Conduct.
