The Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Codes of Practice set forth Zimmer Biomet EHS requirements for our business functions and facilities worldwide. In essence, the Codes operationalize the Company EHS Policy. The EHS Codes of Practice serve as a blueprint for increasing productivity, growth, and customer focus by integrating EHS into our day-to-day business management systems. The Codes also support compliance with all applicable EHS regulations and Company EHS policies and requirements. They serve as the basis for continuous improvement of our operations worldwide.
A corporate internal audit program verifies compliance with regulations and effective EHS activities. Annual self-assessments are conducted to determine compliance with EHS Codes of Practice. EHS related metrics are collected annually to track progress.
