Workplace environment and employee safety are essential

Camfil's focus on occupational health and safety (OHS) is an important driver towards establishing a sustainable and responsible business. It provides safer working conditions, making Camfil Farr a better place to work for people.

At its operation sites, Camfil continuously uses risk management methodologies to identify OHS risks, evaluate them and define mitigation measures to prevent them from occurring.

Safety has been integrated in Camfil's operational policies and management systems as key performance criteria. Safety is therefore integrated in all transverse ISO 9001 and 14001 management systems and the same tools are used for continuous improvement, especially the Green Tornado programme, the basis of continuous improvement processes in Camfil's operations.

Malaysia is certified to OHSAS 18001

In 2007, Camfil Farr Malaysia started a project to implement and maintain an OHS Management System. The Malaysian factory was certified in 2009 to the OHSAS 18001 standard. Compared to 2009, the number of accidents dropped by 62.5% in 2010 and the number of lost work days fell by 69%.

To celebrate and maintain the focus on occupational health and safety, Camfil Malaysia participated in the World Day for Safety and Health at Work event organized by the International Labour Organization (ILO), an international campaign to promote safe, healthy and fair work around the globe.
