Safety

Safety is at the heart of everything that we do. As an organisation and as individuals we are committed to creating a safe working environment and preventing risk, accidents and ill health. Our operational managers are supported by Health and Safety consultants who operate as an integral part of our management team.

Our Health and Safety policy objectives are founded on legal requirements, and include:

  • The implementation of appropriate organisational structures in managing Health and Safety, with a clear definition of duties and responsibilities for all employees
  • The promotion of a Health and Safety culture, achieved by ensuring effective representation of, and participation by, all employees
  • Mechanisms and systems to ensure progressive improvement of Health and Safety for all Unit Birwelco employees
  • Effective liaison and collaboration with the regulatory authorities’ standard-setting bodies, professional institutions, and trade associations

Our general safety principles include – but are not limited to – raising workplace standards and the awareness of Health and Safety among directors, managers and other employees of the group, together with the enhancement of the important role of employee representation in managing Health and Safety.

In 2014 the group passed the milestone of 1.5 million worked man-hours without a lost time incident.
