Health and Safety
Leonardo has always been strongly committed to protecting the health and safety of people at work.
The approach to accident prevention, as for environmental issues, is based on the implementation of management systems compliant with international standards, with significant investments and ongoing awareness-raising and training activities provided to employees.
In 2016, 38 Leonardo’s sites were equipped with a OHSAS 18001 certified health and safety management system, where 57% of the workforce operates.
People who are away or are engaged abroad in countries at risk are assisted 24h/7 through the Travel Security System (TSS), which provides updated information on the country's risk level and suggests mitigation measures.
The frequency rate is calculated as the ratio of the number of accidents in the year to hours worked. To make the result easier to understand, it is multiplied by a factor of 1 mln.
