Boots UK achieves recognition for improving health and safety management and performance
Both Boots UK stores and warehouses were awarded the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Silver Achievement Award.
These internationally recognized awards are based on the organization’s individual occupational health and safety performance assessed against judging criteria.
As well as acknowledging the significant improvement in the safety record over recent years, the awards recognize the effectiveness of health and safety training and the success of safety initiatives introduced.
Engagement with these initiatives is also reflected in the positive feedback from managers and employees in a safety climate survey where employees were invited to submit their views on safety matters.
Alliance Healthcare France launches new health and safety initiatives
During 2015, Alliance Healthcare France implemented three core initiatives to improve health and safety. These were 15-minute training meetings held across warehouses, the creation of an environment, health and safety (EHS) committee and access to a broader range of safety shoes.
Additionally, a communications plan to reinforce the importance of health and safety in the workplace was launched in 2015, which included a four-page article in the March 2015 issue of the Alliance Healthcare France internal magazine.
