Health & Safety



Tate & Lyle Sugars is committed to protecting the health and safety of all personnel on our sites.  Health and safety will not be compromised to meet any business objective. 

We aim to recognise unsafe behaviours and unsafe conditions and to implement safe systems of work in order to prevent all incidents, injuries and occupational illnesses.

The company is committed to developing and sustaining an enthusiastic and proactive safety culture, by adopting best practices for health and safety. In encouraging active participation, rewarding safe behaviours and enforcing safety standards, we ensure personal health and safety in an incident free environment.

Health and safety rules and procedures applying to all employees, contractors, visitors and customers are established, shared and enforced. Each person on site is responsible for identifying and correcting unsafe behaviours and unsafe conditions which affect both themselves and their colleagues.

Management at all levels is held accountable for the prevention of injuries and occupational illnesses and is expected to ensure safe working conditions by instructing personnel in safe work practices and informing them of any known workplace hazards.

The risks associated with all tasks and operations are assessed and safe systems of work are developed to eliminate, reduce and control risks so far as is reasonably practicable. Safety is a key focus for all personnel and it is included as the first topic of discussion on every operational meeting agenda. Personnel are trained in regulatory requirements and other safe work practices, to ensure that they are competent to carry out their duties in a safe manner.

Established Safety Committees involve a cross section of stakeholders to provide a regular forum for the reviewing of leading and lagging indicators of safety performance, and for discussing and resolving safety issues in all locations.

All incidents, injuries, illnesses and near misses must be reported promptly, so that they can be investigated to ensure that corrective actions are taken to prevent recurrence.
