OUR OPERATIONS EMPLOYEE RESPONSIBILITY Reporting our progress towards A Better Tomorrow 55    Occupational Health & Safety At Lidl, we are committed to ensuring our colleagues’ health and safety is our top priority.

Drivingandpromotingapositivesafetyculturewithin all departments. ReviewingandupdatinganeffectiveEHSManagement System in line with ISO 45001. · Conductingriskassessmentsonallour activities and ensuring adequate control measures are in place. · Consistentaudit,inspections,and compliance reviews. · CollaborativeSafetyForumsandmeetings ensuring employee involvement. · · · All of this is monitored through our Employee Health and Safety (EHS) Management System which highlights any potential risks or areas for concern. This system helps us to ensure our employee safety is managed effectively and areas for continuous improvement are identified. During 2020, this process was put to the test with the spread of corona virus, a global pandemic. Our stores became frontline services overnight and all existing measures had to be recalculated to ensure our colleague safety was maintained under new and threatening risks. The EHS department worked closely with Facilities, Procurement, Sales and Logistics to ensure COVID-19 risks were identified and adequate control measures were implemented. Risk assessments and COVID-19 response plans and procedures were developed quickly and effectively. We ensure our standards for the prevention of COVID-19 are at the highest standard possible. Our goal is to work towards an incident free environment for employees and others in our Lidl Stores, RDC or Offices. While doing this we will embed a positive safety culture, ensuring the health of our employees and customer satisfaction is at the heart of everything we do.
