Safe and Decent Work

Challenge: Provide and support safe workplaces that respect the rights of everyone.

In addition to complying with all relevant laws and international agreements in our own operations, many of our supply chains are in emerging markets across highly rural areas, and can involve intermediaries and other third-parties, which makes eradicating labour issues much more complex.

Our Initiatives Include:

Providing participants in our supply chain with

  • Training on safe working practices and information on labour rights
  • Promotion of formalised labour contracts
  • Rollout of the Olam Supplier Code
  • Child labour monitoring and remediation
  • And a grievance communications mechanism

Compliance and reporting on our health, safety, and working conditions as stated in the Olam Fair Employment Policy

Goals and Progress:

We report on the goals and targets in the Human and Social Capital sections of our 2020 Annual Report. Updates include:

  • Progress against our Fair Employment Policy roadmap
  • Progress against our campaign for ‘An Even Safer Olam’
  • How we are tackling child labour
Scaling Impact Through Sector Initiatives Such As:
Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation

Child labour app to be used to cover nearly 223,000 farmers in 3 countries across West Africa, prioritising those countries where the risk is highest.

Child labour monitoring and remediation is set to be rolled out across Olam’s operations in Cameroon in the first programme of its kind by a cocoa company. The move forms part of our cocoa businesses commitment to put children first by tackling child labour and helping more children attend school across its entire direct supply chain.
