SWEP Sustainability Report 2020

Accidents and incidents 2020 has been a singularly challenging year, especially for the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Asia), where a new ERP system was implemented and very high demand put extra pressure on operations. These factors, and the challenges of adapting to the ‘new normal’ of life during a pandemic, affected KPIs. SWEP had no fatal accidents in 2020, but recorded more injuries and sick leave due to injuries than in the previous year. The total recorded incident rate rose from 0.84 to 1.2. Despite the unique circumstances, we have seen some outstanding safety performances this year. The SWEP Malaysia plant recorded zero accidents during 2020, and the SWEP China plant received government recognition for their safety observation system.

Improving health and safety Retraining courses in China, Sweden and Slovakia addressed a number of areas, including the effective use of Personal Protective Equipment – especially relevant in 2020. SWEP China also held a knowledge sharing event for 25 other companies, to promote worker safety across the industry.

Improving health and safety

Encouraging wellbeing All SWEP sites have local wellness teams that devise and support different initiatives for physical and mental wellbeing. Some examples include a walking contest in our Swedish Landskrona site (we effectively walked from Landskrona to Milan in Italy!) and our Christmas calendar, which encouraged employees to take part in daily physical activities throughout December.
