Health and Safety
We employ a full time Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner (CMIOSH) as Group Health and Safety Manager to ensure that we meet and exceed all the relevant industry standards. We are fully compliant with all transport and distribution directives. We hold regular meetings with staff to encourage communication about improvements and issues and actively solicit feedback to support continuous improvement.
The Lenham Health & Safety package is independently approved by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), and is mandatory for all new employees regardless of which area they will be working in – office, warehouse, driving or management. All temporary staff also undertake a mandatory induction package relating to their area of work.
We are also full accredited to undertake the IOSH Managing Safely 4-day course which is a mandatory requirement for all our management team, followed by a mandatory 3-yearly refresher course to ensure that high standards are maintained.
We are also working towards the internationally recognized OHSAS 18001 standard as we strive for continual improvement and zero accidents.
