A Commitment to Equal Opportunities

Our Modern Slavery Statement
We take a holistic approach to human rights. Addressing modern slavery and people trafficking is part of a wider focus on safeguarding human rights within our business and supply chains.
The policy clarifies our position on diversity, freedom of association, workplace health, safety and security, working hours, wages and benefits, child labour and modern slavery. It also prohibits the use of all forms of forced labour including prison labour, indentured labour, bonded labour, military labour, slave labour and any form of human trafficking.
Safety in the Work Place
Under the Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, our business has a responsibility not to injure its workers whilst they are at work. Equally, employees have a responsibility to co-operate with safety measures and not to do anything that will cause themselves or their colleagues harm.
As part of our ongoing commitment to health and safety, we have a number of initiatives in place, including:
- Health & Safety induction
- Safety updates & briefs
- Policies & procedures
- Safety Starts With Me
- Training & Standard Operating Procedures
- Safety and Safety meetings
- Golden Rules
Safety starts with Me
The site runs a ‘Safety Starts with Me’ incentive which offers employees the chance to raise safety issues in an open and honest forum with their line manager. This helps to identify behaviours which could be dangerous and also gives employees the opportunity to suggest improvements.
We strive towards providing our employees with a great place to work. We offer:
- Flexible working hours to suit the needs of individual employees to help them achieve a better work-life balance.
- A subsidised canteen at Lichfield which serves a variety of healthy and nutritious options at breakfast and lunch time.
- A complimentary transport service for all employees within a 15 mile radius of our Lichfield site.
Fundraising and Charity
We encourage our employees to get involved in fundraising and charitable activities throughout the year, particularly those that promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Our employees regularly take part in community sporting events including:
- Community walks and runs
- Cycle event
- Mud runs
In the Christmas spirit, all of our employees receive a Christmas gift to say thank you for their hard work over the year. We also host a complimentary festive lunch in our canteen.
