Four contract workers at the Heineken plant in Sao Paulo, Brazil were killed and another injured when a boiler under repair exploded on January 28. Despite the fact that work at the plant resumed eight days after the accident, the IUF-affiliated National Confederation of Food and Allied Workers (CNTA) is still waiting to receive the company-commissioned report and the reports from the Ministry of Labor, the fire and police departments.

In 2014, Heineken reported fifteen workplace fatalities – four company employees and eleven contract workers.
