Health and Safety

Health and Safety Expertly Handled

Health & Safety is a key business priority and we believe that excellence in this area can create value across the supply chain. Our approach is to align our H&S systems and strategies with core business objectives and focus on delivering low cost, high impact solutions that benefit all parties.

In practice, this means that we prioritise H&S initiatives that will add value across the supply chain. We also clearly assign ownership and accountability for H&S initiatives at every level of the business.

In addition, we have developed routes of communication that effectively spread the message and raise awareness of health and safety issues.

Progress is monitored and measured through a number of tools, including SMAT, a behavioural safety-based observation programme. Continuous improvement in health & safety is encouraged through benchmarking and sharing best practice via national forums.

Jewson's progress and achievements in the field have been recognised by a number of prestigious awards including three National Occupational Health & Safety Awards from ROSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents).
