Health & Safety

The health and safety of our employees and all those likely to be affected by our actions is our single most important consideration.

It is our policy to perform work in the safest practicable manner, consistent with good practice. The necessary resources are made available to ensure the success of this policy and include the employment of a full time health and safety expert to provide advice and a means for continuously monitoring and improving health and safety performance.

It is the accepted duty of the Directors to do everything reasonably practicable to prevent injury and ill-health, and maintain a safe and healthy work environment. The Company places great importance on the need to consult and communicate effectively with our employees. In addition to the employee representative monthly meeting the Directors (and Senior Managers) dedicate a whole day, four times a year, to simultaneously visit as many staff as possible with the sole purpose of raising awareness, receiving feedback  and communicating the importance we place upon working safely.

All employees are regularly made aware that, in the event of any conflict between the demands of production and safety, they will always receive the full support of the Directors when they reasonably choose safety as the priority, despite any pressure exerted by outside influences.
