Helping you get the most out of your business, in the safest and most resourceful way, is what we do best.
Here is our most recent project:
A food processing plant in Norfolk.
Despite already having a contracted health and safety management provider, a food processing plant was fed up of receiving inadequate support.
As a result, they got in touch with Shepherd’s Health and Safety so they could have round the clock support for their staff and business.
What Shepherd’s Health and Safety Ltd Did
Our client was, unfortunately, being let down by their current health and safety contractor stating the service they were receiving was “too generic” and they didn’t feel that it reflected their company.
So, we had a meeting with the company representative, and we assessed the management system they were currently working against. We spotted lots of shortfalls and areas of improvement and then we developed a management system that was bespoke to their business.
They were much happier to have a Health and Safety Management System that looked at the business as a whole.
Because of the upgraded management system, the food processing company scored nearly 100% in a recent external audit. As well as improving existing customer satisfaction, the business has also seen an increase in profits and has signed contracts with new customers.
The business has also reported higher levels of productivity.
Health and Safety Benefits
Because of the more bespoke approach to the Health and Safety Management System, workplace incidents have been dramatically reduced. Morale amongst all levels of staffing has also improved
Shepherd’s Health and Safety become the contractor after a food processing plant was dissatisfied with the service they were receiving.
We gave the business bespoke guidance and support. Not only did productivity improve after we took over as the health and safety contractor, but their external audit increased to over 96% leading to more customers.
