Safety First

Keeping everybody safe is the number one operational priority of our business. This means making sure our people have the right tools to do their job, in a safe environment. It also means taking great care over the food that we prepare for our consumers.

We’ve worked hard to create a culture that takes safety very seriously, and train our people to adopt behaviors that focus on keeping them free from harm. As well as adhering to the strictest regulatory requirements, our own policies and standards are reviewed each year to ensure we are adopting industry best practice and striving to do better.

In Ireland, we have a team of health, safety and environment specialists who are able to respond to the specific needs of each client group. Every week, this team reviews health and safety data from each site and the findings are discussed by the relevant leadership team so that we can take swift action as required, or share best practice between our teams when something is clearly working well. We promote a safety culture where each team member is responsible for the safety of those around them.

Our business utilises internationally recognised management standards for quality, safety, environment and food safety to ensure we do the right thing, at the right time – all of the time. ( OHSAS 18001, ISO9001 & ISO 14001.)

Ensuring Food Safety

 

We have an exemplary record on food hygiene, so making sure that our food is safe to eat and that all allergens are clearly signposted is of paramount importance. As you would expect from a market-leading foodservice company, we have strict procedures and processes in place that govern how food is stored and handled.

One of the ways we keep standards high is through appropriate checks and balances and by regularly auditing our sites. We adhere to the ISO 9001 for quality management, a system which we have externally certified each year. As well as routine internal audits, we invite third party auditors to do unannounced site visits. We also receive regular routine visits each year from Environmental Health Officers.
