Occupational Health and Safety Award
Total Foodservice are celebrating a five star grading in the British Safety Council’s Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit
We are pleased to announce we have achieved a five star grading from our Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit conducted by the British Safety Council. Awarded on 6th April 2016, we underwent a detailed, quantified and objective evaluation of our occupational health and safety management system.
The audit measured our performance against a number of key safety management indicators and achieved the highest rating.
The British Safety Council’s Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit provides organisations with a worldwide benchmark of their safety management systems against current best practice to enable continual improvement. The Audit specification was revised in 2013 to include performance measurements in two additional safety management indicators (Leadership and Continuous Improvement) which are continually assessed, alongside other indicators, throughout the audit process.
Within the revised audit, the British Safety Council has placed a greater emphasis on the organisation’s approach to occupational health, employee wellbeing, safety culture, allocation of resources to health and safety and planning for change; all of which are considered important best practice factors.
Paul Nowell, operations and health & safety director of Total Foodservice, said “Being awarded 5 stars is a huge accomplishment, especially for a smaller local business like ours. We’re extremely proud of our Health & Safety team who have helped us achieve this award. All staff at Total Foodservice take on responsibility for Health & Safety in the workplace.”
