Health & Safety Team

Our flagship and award-winning H&S Department are at the forefront of delivering strategic solutions to ensuring everyone who comes to site, leaves in the same way they came; safe, unharmed and with everything intact. Our vision for health and safety is to ensure people go home in the same way they came to work, if not better educated with the additional knowledge of how health and safety impacts on everyone's lives, not just their own.

Our Occupational Health and Safety Journey Plans are designed, developed, implemented and reviewed in partnership with people who are assigned to work or visit any of our sites. Our H&S plans are undertaken by the people who work for us. The organisation is committed to being accountable in all areas for development.

We are committed to providing a healthy and safe working environment for all. To this end, our health and safety vision reflects a proactive and preventative behavioural-based approach that integrates Occupational Health & Safety into our culture, values and the way we carry out our business.

We recognise that in order to protect our staff and other stakeholders from injury, illness and other loss, we must value health and safety as much as our other core values and make it an integral part of our operating structure.

Troy Foods considers no aspect of its operation or administration more important than the health and safety of its employees, contractors, workers and visitors. This is achieved by maintaining safe and healthy working conditions and by fostering a culture focused on awareness, open communication, safety education and supervision, and safe working methods. Our goal is to reduce work related injuries and illnesses year on year by a process of continual improvement and commitment from our workforce.
