Life at Safilo

A healthy company is a place where everyone can work safely, and where their health is safeguarded. This commitment involves everyone at Safilo. Since 2012, our Health and Safety Management System has been certified according to international standards (BS OHSAS 18001:2007 - ISO 45001:2018) at all production sites and at our Group’s headquarters. A concrete example of our attention to this topic are the specific protocols for employees, suppliers, customers and collaborators adopted to counter and contain the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Safilo regards the relationship with trade unions as an important element of collaboration in order to continually improve working conditions, face together problems and support the needs of employees. The role played by each trade union delegation is crucial, so we are committed to maintaining strong relationships with all of them. Find out more in our Group Business Plan 2020-2024

At Safilo, we have always believed that diversity is a source of wealth and creativity. We promote an inclusive working environment where differences are welcomed, creating value, and where everyone’s talent and merit are rewarded and valued.

These values are so important to us that we have produced a manual that reflects our commitment; the ‘Worldwide Business Conduct Manual - The Safilo Way’. Our aim is to establish corporate policies to help our people act in line with the Group’s principles. Operating with integrity, accountability and transparency with all the people we interact with is in our DNA.

To report potential violations of the ‘Worldwide Business Conduct Manual’ or of the law, we have implemented a global whistleblowing system.
