Keeping people safe is a cornerstone of our business. We want to make sure that everyone directly or indirectly involved in the operations of our businesses returns home safely at the end of every day – employees, customers and suppliers.
Our Stay Safe initiative was set up in 2008 and is at the forefront of everything we do. We do this by:
- Empowering colleagues in our business to champion safety wherever they work, in a branch, store, distribution centre or office.
- Sharing best practice, challenging what’s gone before, inspiring people to take action, communicating and engaging colleagues in the Stay Safe initiative.
- Developing a culture where everyone takes responsibility, and preventing harm by actively influencing others.
- Tackling high risk areas with clearer guidance.
