Health and Safety For All

At McCormick, we know that we have a special responsibility to ensure our employees are protected and feel healthy and safe. We believe that an environment free of risks and hazards drives our forward-looking and mitigative approach to provide a safe workplace, which promotes the health of all employees as we look to drive real actions to attain our zero-injuries goal.

Overall wellbeing is just as important as physical health and safety at McCormick. That is one of the reasons why we created our global employee wellbeing program, Nour!sh. Nour!sh aims to engage, educate, and support McCormick employees in all areas of wellbeing so they can live, balance, and ultimately, thrive both at work and at home.
