Why any risk is too much risk

Why any risk is too much risk

Health and Safety, Environment and Quality

/ HEALTH AND SAFETY IS OF VITAL IMPORTANCE TO US, OUR EMPLOYEES, AND TO OUR CUSTOMERS TOO. IN FACT, IT IS A FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE OF OUR BUSINESS.

Health and Safety ensures we take care of our colleagues and our business, and meet the priorities of our Board and our shareholders. It is also increasingly imposed by legislation and regulation in the countries where we operate. Last but not least, it is a growing consideration amongst our customers, who expect our safety performance to show that we are a professional organization which can be a safe and trusted partner. So for the good of our employees above all – but for our business too – our shareholders, Board and management are committed to 100% health and safety.

A SAFER YEAR AHEAD

The nature of our business, as well as our diverse business operations inevitably create some Health and Safety risks: some low, some high. Our overarching aim is to eliminate those risks. To help us doing this, we have a robust Health and Safety management structure. Each region (US, UK and Europe) has a HSEQ Manager, and each cluster has Health and Safety, Environment and Quality professionals in place, with larger locations also having a Safety Representative available.

Ultimately, we want everyone to go home safe, every day

The HSEQ Managers are part of the Global Project Team which shares information, issues safety alerts, meets regularly and reports directly to the ERIKS Management Board. Ultimately, we want everyone to go home safe, every day – whether they are employees, customers, suppliers or contractors. With around 8,000 employees to inform and involve, effective safety education is a gradual process, but we have made significant progress and are determined to continually improve.
