Health and Safety
We take the welfare of our people very seriously and comply with all the relevant occupational regulations and standards, reflecting the very best practice on a continuous basis.
Factory, warehouse and office risk assessments are regularly undertaken to anticipate, minimise and control any occupational hazards. All employees are empowered to identify and highlight health and safety issues proactively and to follow agreed reporting procedures. These are immediately responded to, and actions are taken/reported.
We are proud of the steps that we have taken to produce a safe working environment for all our employees especially as we handle large volumes of flammable liquids. We also monitor employee exposure to fire lighting products/ingredients and ensure that we keep well below legislative requirements. We visibly display our health and safety records at our factory for all to see as well as a reminder of new policies or procedures.
Annual independent inspections are carried out by regulated safety representatives. Standard Brands continues to be accredited to OHSAS 18001 standard for Occupational Health and Safety. Twice yearly audits are carried out.
