British American Tobacco (BAT), the largest British investor in Serbia, marked five consecutive years of business without injury and professional illnesses, and the factory in Vranje became the only company within the plant in Western Europe with that result.
Occupational safety is one of the company’s basic business postulates that is strategically committed to achieving and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment. “The credit for achieving this fantastic success belongs to all of our employees at the factory in Vranje. We are extremely proud of this success, but, more importantly, we are very happy about the fact that we have created an environment in which all our employees, partners and visitors can feel completely safe. Today’s celebration aims to show our employees that we value and respect their commitment to safe work, and we believe that just marking these achievements and recognition of merit additionally contribute to increasing motivation and winning spirit. The next goal is ten years without any injuries at work,” said Richard Vredenberg, director of the BAT Vranje factory.
