HEALTH & SAFETY
At String Lights Outdoor, our long-term success depends upon working to ensure the safety of our workers, visitors to our operations, and the public. We believe that a safe and healthy workplace is a fundamental right of every person and also a business imperative. Our Workplace Rights Policy requires that we take responsibility for maintaining a productive workplace in every part of our Company by doing what we can to minimize the risk of accidents, injury, and exposure to health hazards for all of our associates and contractors. In addition, we’re working with our bottling partners to help to ensure health and safety risks are minimized for their employees and contract workers.
As a family-owned business, Health and Safety are driven by genuine care for our people and we always strive to improve the safety of our staff. We work alongside independent safety consultants and the HSE to implement best practices. Our commitment to Health and Safety is also demonstrated in our safety record along with the “Improving Route-to-Market Safety” policy.
Our Health and Safety strategy is based on the following:
- Health and Safety Advice from consultants
- Assessing the competence of employees and subcontractors
- Risk Assessments for all working areas and third party interface
- Delivering Health and Safety information to all areas of the business
- The supply and correct use of Personal Protective Equipment
- CSCS cards for all site staff
We have an excellent reputation and track record for Health and Safety and our clients expect use to comply with standards, but we will always push to exceed the minimum requirement.
