We believe that all cases of work-related ill health, injuries and incidents are preventable and it is our policy that all near misses, however minor, are reported. This is a higher standard than is normally applied in this industry.
Our policy on occupational safety, health, environment and process safety requires the active involvement of all employees to ensure that continuous efforts are made to maintain and improve our performance and recognise our obligations under applicable international, national and local legislation and management standards.
At all our sites and offices, we are committed to take
all reasonable measures to identify the potential for accidents, eradicating that potential and thus maintaining our goal of zero harm.
More recently, we have achieved a Gold Award in the highly respected and internationally-renowned RoSPA Health & Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK, for Health & Safety performance during 2019. This is a significant and unprecedented achievement, not least because it has been attained in a matter of only two years, from when we first applied for the Awards for the 2018 qualifying period and won a Silver Award, having surpassed both the Merit and Bronze Award categories.
