PROSPEROUS FARMERS & FOOD SYSTEMS

PROVIDING SAFE & DECENT WORK

Safe and decent work – related to UN Sustainable Development Goal 8 – is one of the material areas that AtSource has metrics in place for and reports on. It can be measured in many ways.From the number of child labour cases identified and remediated on farms, to the number of employees involved in hazardous roles in processing facilities.

All suppliers with products enrolled on AtSource must commit to compliance and reporting on health, safety and working conditions, as outlined in the Olam Supplier Code.

METRICS

AtSource+ also allows customers to track a number of key metrics across their supply chains including:

Number of farmers in a farmer group trained on good labour and health & safety practices

Number of farmers covered by an active and effective Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation System

Percentage of employees trained on labour rights and practices

Number of employees occupying a position with hazard or at risk. For eg., handling chemicals or operating machinery
