Case study: How FedEx is ensuring occupational safety
Every day FedEx pilots span continents, FedEx drivers criss-cross countries, package handlers sort millions of shipments and customer service reps answer thousands of calls. Ensuring the safety of its more than 340,000 team members across more than 220 countries and territories is thus a top priority for FedEx.
FedEx incorporates safety principles into all aspects of its international network of people Tweet This!, facilities and technology. One accident is too many, and FedEx remains committed to employing new measures, educational programs and procedures in order to get them down to zero. After measuring and setting targets, FedEx took action to ensure safe and secure flight operations and vehicle fleet safety, raise awareness about safety best practices, redesign team member safety courses to accommodate differences in learning styles, install additional video event data recorders, work with external collaborators to ensure compliance with industry safety standards, measure and report on its global safety record, reduce lost-time injuries through the Safety Above All 2 initiative and, also, prevent workplace violence.Using the GRI Standards in order to maintain and increase the value of your company
