Health & Safety

The health, safety and welfare of its employees is of paramount importance to the company. The executive team of Halewood Wines and Spirits is regularly updated by the dedicated health & safety team. Accident and incident statistics are closely monitored to ensure the business reacts to any issues promptly and a 50% drop in the number of accidents has been seen (despite increased reporting).

The company has invested in health & safety training for many staff, particularly in higher-risk operational areas, and it works with union and employee representatives, and its own managers, to proactively manage health & safety.

Over recent years employees have been recruited to act as full-time trainers allowing them to pass on key skills, highlight potential operational hazards and encourage the development of their colleagues – this approach also increases the flexibility of the workforce. The trainers are key in communicating out awareness of safety issues on a preventative basis.
