Health & Safety in the Workplace
We provide safe working conditions and encourage safe working methods across our teams. In fact it’s so important that we have an external Health & Safety Agency to monitor us. This is what she has to say:
“The use of a professional external agency to monitor and enforce good health and safety practices and procedures is vital for any responsible company, which is why I am delighted to be Regional’s official Health & Safety manager” Judith West – Cranbrook Consultants
