      Working safely during Covid-19 Our global sites have undertaken Covid-19 risk assessments which meet or exceed government guidance in those countries and have numerous preventative measures in place to reduce workplace risk.  Read more

      We confirm we have complied with the UK government's guidance on managing the risk of Covid-19 including risk assessments in all our UK sites.

      Our site HSE representatives have worked in consultation with union or employee representatives to achieve this. Our risk assessments ensure that we have identified preventative measures to reduce workplace risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level. We have already introduced numerous measures and continually monitor the situation. We have shared the results of these risk assessments with our employees and have displayed a notice in each site to confirm this.
