Advancing Safety Together: 2023 Global Safety Week

Last month, TI Fluid Systems hosted its first Global Safety Week from the 16th to the 20th October. Marking another significant step forward in our commitment to safety, health, and well-being in the workplace. The week-long event was modeled on our successful European Week for Safety and Health at Work in 2022.

Global Safety Week emphasized the value of safety, health, and well-being among TI Fluid Systems employees. Before the event took place, our Corporate Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) teams unveiled the theme for 2023’s event – Advancing Safety Together. The specific focus of this global campaign was on reducing the incidence of slip, trip, and fall injuries, which are among the most common workplace injuries worldwide.

We set out on a clear mission to foster a positive safety mindset that would enable us to continually enhance our safety culture. Setting up activities that add real value to our global teams, we helped to raise awareness of the importance of safety and well-being in the workplace and celebrate our existing safety successes.

To ensure that our safety messages reached every corner of our organisation, we translated and distributed training materials and information packs to our global teams.  It wasn’t all hard work though; we had over 1700 employees take part in a global safety quiz, with the lucky winners in each region taking home prizes for their engagement and attention to detail.

Safety Week activities were hosted all over the world and included a diverse set of offerings and activities. In Baroda India Safety Week activities included an inaugural speech, igniting the lamp, and a safety oath ceremony. Employees took a hands-on approach throughout the week as they took part in induction training and were rewarded with badges as a symbol of their commitment to safety. Our Bursa Turkey team took on an active role throughout the week, too. The highlight of the team’s efforts in Turkey saw them proactively enhance safety awareness by placing warning signs in high-use areas, which emphasized the risks associated with slips, trips, and falls on stairs. In Mexico City, the management team coordinated safety training and drills with a health event designed to bring health services and vendors directly to the plant to make it as easy as possible for employees to access various healthcare options.

Our Safety Week campaign was built around the core principle of advancing safety together, and it provided us with a platform to highlight the vital role of safety, health, and well-being in the workplace. We look forward to continuing our pursuit of safety, health, and well-being together as one global team. We want to thank all those who participated, and we are excited about making Safety Week at TI an annual global event.
