Around the world, we are committed to sending everyone home safely to their friends and family, because nothing we do is worth getting hurt for. 

It is clear that our dedication to safety has benefitted everyone at McCain Foods and we continue to exemplify excellent health and safety principles and policies. This is evident in many safety awards that our sites and locations have received around the world, and is shown by our world class Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) numbers – which also continue to decline.

In ten years, we have reduced our Employee TRIR number to a small fraction of what it was in 2006. Through our dedication to the Key Elements of Safety management system and safety principles, every single one of us at McCain Foods has contributed to this achievement.

We are committed to continue to strive for zero incidents, and safety will always be our number one priority.
