Improving our Workplace
A proactive approach to Health and Safety ensures that our employees, and everyone they come into contact with, know how to minimise the risk of an accident.”
By providing a safe environment in which to work, we show our staff how much their wellbeing matters to us.
Health and Safety is owned at the highest level of Smiths News, with the Board and Executive taking a hands-on role in monitoring performance. We have an online reporting portal that enables us to keep track of incidents, as well as managing audits and risk assessments. This helps keep accidents to a minimum – a state of affairs that is reinforced through regular Health and Safety training across the workforce.
