Health, Safety and Environmental Policy

Last Updated Date: February 2019

The Components Division are committed to achieving the highest standards of Health Safety and Environment (HSE).  This commitment includes all of our employees, any other persons affected by our activities, including temporary workers, contractors, customers, suppliers, visitors, surrounding neighbours and environment. 

We believe that a strong HSE culture, is the result of sound management systems, and informed, engaged employees, and we will encourage our suppliers to operate in a similar way.

We will:

1.1 Make safety our highest priority, and stop any activity/ process which puts any employee, or others at significant risk of injury.

1.2 Meet, or exceed the local regulatory requirements, and comply with the requirements of the Essentra Group HSE Policy

1.3 Identify training, and provide information to ensure a safe and healthy workplace.

1.4 Improve our Environmental performance by: minimising our emissions and discharges, the reduction of waste, and take every opportunity of recycling where practically possible. Energy consumption will be measured, and opportunities for reduction identified.

1.5 Where HSE good practices are identified, adopt these as appropriate, and communicate them throughout the Division. 

1.6 Reduce HSE incidents, with the goal of achieving zero harm.

1.7 Always learn by any mistakes, and lessons learned.

1.8 Annually we will establish HSE objectives, and maintain appropriate plans designed to sustain and improve upon our HSE management and performance. HSE projects and initiatives shall receive at least equal priority with other operational, manufacturing and quality related projects, and be included, as appropriate, in business strategic planning and annual budgeting process.

1.9 The Components Divisional Managing Director is responsible for ensuring we have adequate HSE arrangements for all of our sites. This includes ensuring sufficient time and resources are made available to deliver the strategy, policy commitments and other HSE programmes
