Over the last five years, working with an external safety advisor, the company has improved its approach to managing health and safety. This has brought tangible benefits to employees, managers and the company and they continue to work together at reducing health and safety risks.

Mark and his management team had a good attitude towards health and safety and recognized the need for change, but they were not quite sure what to do first or how to go forward.
