Thanks to the support of OMRON Safety Services, Campari has recently revolutionized its global safety programs. Starting with the company's plant in Novi Ligure, Italy, this systems overhaul has enabled the leading spirits manufacturer to improve safety management of machinery and processes, as well as make strides in the field of governance.
Continued expansion into the global market and the resulting technological challenges have led the Campari Group — the sixth largest in the global spirits sector—to completely rethink its safety policies.
The company wanted to radically transform health and safety in the workplace, by moving from a purely procedural to a more pragmatic approach that put operators themselves at the forefront of the process and resulted in guidelines that would allow safe but flexible working.
To accompany them on this journey, Campari chose OMRON. OMRON’s Safety Services division's proven track record in combining technology with ever-evolving skills, as well as our ability to guarantee the level of geographical availability needed to deploy the new systems uniformly across all 14 of the company's locations on three continents, made OMRON a natural choice of partner.
A Transformation of Culture
The Campari Group's transformation project stemmed from a desire to truly change the culture within the organization. "We wanted a different approach to safety, and that included attitudes toward it," explain the managers at the Novi Ligure plant, which was chosen to pilot the project before it was rolled out worldwide. "We wanted to get people involved from the initial development stages through to best practices, both to ensure as little impact as possible on day-to-day work and to be able to properly train them and make it easier to pass on the right information about safety. Doing this internally in a structured way is something else, which is why we worked with OMRON to do it in a way that was new and innovative, but still as standardized as possible so that it can be shared across all the other plants."
