Health & safety

International Forwarding takes safety issues very seriously – here is our company policy on health and safety.

We are committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of our employees, and will, so far as reasonably practicable, establish procedures and systems necessary to implement this commitment and to comply with statutory obligations on health and safety. We are a member of the British Safety Council.

The company will take reasonable steps to ensure the health and safety of its employees, and will expect that all employees recognise that it is their duty to take reasonable care of their own and other people’s health, safety and welfare, and to report any situation which may pose a serious or imminent threat to themselves or the wellbeing of any other person.

We will provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment with the objective of minimising the number of instances of occupational accidents and illnesses. The company will pay particular attention to:

  • Maintaining the workplace in a safe condition and providing adequate facilities and arrangements for welfare at work.
  • Providing a safe means of access to and egress from the workplace.
  • The provision of maintenance of equipment and systems of work that are safe.
  • Arrangements for ensuring safety to health in connection with the use, handling, storage and transport of articles and substances.
  • The provision of such information, instructions, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure the health and safety at work of its employees and other persons.

International Forwarding also recognises its duty to protect the health and safety of all visitors to the company, including contractors and temporary workers, as well as any members of the public who might be affected by the company’s work operations.

We hold regular health and safety meetings to discuss all aspects of our operations in relation to health and safety to ensure that it remains a very high priority subject.
