Our Zero Risk work safety initiative
The Zero Risk campaign is an integrated aspect to GF's Sustainability Framework 2025 objective of reducing the accident rates by 30%.
"Zero risk” is the key message of the safety campaign which has been initiated and launched by GF Casting Solutions in October 2015 to encourage all employees to be more aware in the workplace. Especially in production, the campaign aims to raise awareness of potential risks and their consequences. Additionally, the Zero Risk campaign also promotes a sense of personal responsibility among employees with the goal of reducing the number of accidents in the workplace.
The Zero Risk campaign focuses on three core aspects:
Near-Miss and Observation reporting tool at production locations, develop training focusing on top root causes of previous incidents and daily discussions amongst peers and teams regarding health and safety topics.
Going beyond policy and procedure, the foundational blocks of “Behavior Based Safety” is introduced, with the focus on understanding how internal and external influencers impact health and safety.
Each stepped progression builds upon a deeper focus on behavior-based safety, proactive risk reductions, and taking safety beyond the workplace, and into everyday lives.
