PZ Cussons regards the health and safety of its employees as a fundamental business responsibility and is committed to maintaining and improving performance built on a platform of regular reviews and practical actions, sustained through an effective management programme.
Health and safety is reviewed regularly by the Occupational Health & Safety Committee that ensures that any related risks are properly identified and assessed, and that appropriate action to mitigate and manage risk is actioned accordingly.
Health and safety heads up our balanced Supply Chain Manufacturing Strategy (Safety, Quality, Delivery, Moral, Cost). PZ Cussons is committed to fully embedding good health and safety practices into our everyday operations. Each business unit, under a continuous improvement agenda, has embarked on a programme to continually evolve this balanced strategy and has stretched health and safety targets to ensure drive and progress.
We empower and encourage our employees to identify and report hazards or near misses. We employ health and safety committees with cross functional and cross hierarchical representation across our business.
Where appropriate, PZ Cussons provides on-site medical facilities and health monitoring programmes for employees. We continue to build on our traditional programmes, which focus on workplace behaviours, coupled with helping employees understand any personal health risks.
PZ Cussons currently reports on a number of elements to provide a 360 degree picture of good health and safety performance that can quickly highlight any issues that may need escalating.
