Health and safety

As a company we ensure that we provide a safe environment to work in and make sure all our employees are suitably trained. We regularly assess and continually improve our operating systems, distribution network and understanding of our products, with respect to their impact on the health and safety of our employees, customers and the general public.

We aim to surpass the minimum legislative requirements, and we are also responsive to the concerns of our employees and the public.
