Safety & Health


At The Coca-Cola Company, our long-term success depends upon ensuring the safety of our workers, visitors to our operations, and the public.

We believe that a safe and healthy workplace is a fundamental right of every person and also a business imperative. Our Workplace Rights Policy requires that we take responsibility for maintaining a productive workplace in every part of our Company by minimizing the risk of accidents, injury and exposure to health hazards for all of our associates and contractors. In addition, we’re working with our bottling partners to ensure health and safety risks are minimized for their employees and contract workers.

The Coca-Cola Operating Requirements (KORE) define the policies, standards and requirements for managing safety, the environment and quality throughout our operations. KORE also requires that our manufacturing and distribution facilities implement BS OHSAS 18001 (British Standard Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series 18001, a framework for an effective occupational health and safety management system) or an equivalent internationally recognized safety management system.

To guide us in achieving a safe work environment for our associates, KORE defines a rigorous set of operational controls to manage known risks. The controls generally align with top global requirements and consensus standards. In addition, we audit the compliance of each of our manufacturing operations with applicable laws and regulations and our Company occupational safety and health requirements.

We provide substantial safety training to our associates using the training requirements defined in KORE as a global baseline. Training covers new-hire induction and periodic refresher training for all associates and other workers conducting work on our behalf.
