Health and Safety
"Valuing our people" is a LexisNexis core value evident in our approach to workforce health and safety issues. Rather than viewed as a compliance burden, health and safety is seen as essential to the welfare and productivity of our people. The importance of employee health and safety is addressed in the Reed Elsevier Code of Ethics, to which all LexisNexis employees are subject. This commits us to provide a safe workplace for all employees.
The Code states that, "...in addition, there are laws and regulations that impose responsibility on Reed Elsevier to safeguard against safety and health hazards."
Communication on health and safety issues is part of this commitment. We consult with employees globally on health and safety issues through staff and work councils and we have established a Health and Safety Champions network to discuss policies andbest practices.Back to top
