Safety is our top priority

When it comes to health and safety, our aim is simple:

To make sure all our colleagues, customers, suppliers and everyone in the communities where we work go home safely at the end of each day.
Health and safety is at the forefront of everything we do. In 2008, we set up our Stay Safe initiative with the aim of becoming our industry’s leader in reducing and eliminating workplace injuries.

We’re committed to:

► Empowering everyone in our business, from the Group Board right down to each individual colleague, to champion safety – whether they work in a branch, store, distribution centre or office.
► Sharing best practice, challenging what’s gone before and inspiring people to take action. Communicating with our colleagues about health and safety, and engaging them in our Stay Safe ethos.
► Developing a culture where everyone takes responsibility and works to prevent harm by actively influencing others.
► Tackling high risk areas of our business with clearer guidance to reduce risk.
