CDC publishes guidance for investors on preventing serious accidents and fatalities

17 Dec 2014

CDC has published guidance for investors to help them assess the likely risks of serious or fatal workplace incidents in emerging markets. The guidance also advises investors on how to reduce the likelihood of such incidents.

While drawing on broad industry best practice, the guidance is specifically focused on particular workplace activities that are most likely to result in serious or fatal incidents. This focus has resulted from analysis of data on serious incidents and fatalities from CDC’s portfolio of over 1,300 underlying investments.

The guidance is written in a non-technical fashion to enable investment industry professionals to understand the impact of accidents and work with their portfolio companies to reduce them. The note also addresses questions frequently asked by investors such as how to deal with contractors and how a company should prevent repeat occurrences.
