Making Collections and dealing with waste batteries raises some very particular health and safety issues for G & P Batteries due to their hazardous nature.
The company has rigorous health, safety, quality and environmental systems and we seek to conduct our business in a way that avoids harm to our staff, contractors, suppliers and anyone on the sites we visit or who comes to our premises.
We hold regular health and safety review meetings to assess our performance.
G & P operates the Ecobat Group’s ‘Safe for Life’ initiative, which was devised to ensure all employees stay safe at work. Working with batteries exposes employees to a number of health, safety and environmental risks and it is vital for the correct procedures to be in place, and followed, by staff and visitors alike.
We actively encourage the reporting of any issues around our ‘Safe for Life’ initiative and have created a culture where staff are not afraid to point out any potential health or safety issue to a superior, if necessary.
Our Safe for Life initiative is actively promoted to contractors, suppliers and visitors, click here for more information.
