Employee Health and Safety
One of our most important priorities is to ensure safe and health working conditions for our employees. We have Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Committees in all our workplaces and carry out all activities regarding health and safety in compliance with the Law No. 6331 on Occupational Health and Safety. Our Occupational Health and Safety Committees include a union representative along with an employer representative. Anadolu Hayat Emeklilik headquarters OHS Committee is chaired by the Human Resources and Training Department Manager, and our committees in the rest of our locations have employee representatives. Our OHS committees meet quarterly and all our workplaces employ OHS experts and workplace physicians.
Every new employee is given an informational training on OHS and our Occupational Health and Safety Regulation. All employees are given basic OHS training as required by the Law No. 6331 on Occupational Health and Safety. In 2019, 240 employees received OHS training. No serious incidents resulting in injury or death has occurred in any of our workplaces. In 2019, there were 4 notifications to our OHS units for minor injuries and office incidents.
