Health & Safety

Avon is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for Associates, contract employees and visitors.

As a global company, we work to ensure all of our sites meet regulatory safety standards. However, these regulations can vary by region and country. We have established stringent internal safety requirements to address these differences and ensure consistency in safety processes across our global operations.

The foundation of our health and safety programs at individual sites is ensured through compliance with local regulations, and by conducting risk assessments of tasks performed; developing safe operating procedures; and providing new hire safety orientations, job training, and training for specific topics, such as ergonomics, electrical and chemical safety, among others.

Avon has established measures to consistently capture and report workplace accident information across global manufacturing plants and distribution centers. We use this data to publish quarterly global safety reports, allowing leadership to recognize excellent performance and identify areas for improvement.

Avon sites are evaluated on four Global Safety key performance indicators (KPIs):

  • Avon Recordable Cases (ARC) is the number of incidents that are considered to be serious enough to be recorded, including lost time plus medical treatment beyond first-aid.
  • Site Safety Programs Review (SSPR) is a self-assessment safety review and sites are measured across four key categories: Involvement in Safety; Assessment and Training; Specific Safety Programs and General Safety Programs.
  • Safety Opportunity Reports (SORs) are voluntarily submitted by Associates to report unsafe conditions or actions, share ideas for improvement and record near-miss incidents.
  • Safety Actions Completion (SAC) metrics track the number of safety action items completed by the defined due date.

Based on the results of all four Global Safety KPIs, Avon sites are given one overall safety performance score, referred to as the Overall Safety Index (OSI).

Avon's annual production safety performance data is available in our Reporting section.
