Safety double for Greene King in Bury St Edmunds

Have your say

Greene King in Bury St Edmunds has won a gold award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.

Tony Macken, brewing and distribution director for Greene King Brewing and Brands, said: “We do everything we can to make our employees safe when they come to work, so it’s fantastic to be honoured once again by such a well-respected organisation.

“However, stringent processes and guidelines only take you so far when it comes to health and safety, which is why everyone at the brewery should be congratulated for following our procedures so closely and making Greene King such a safe place to work.”

Greene King’s performance was assessed in a number of key areas, including its overarching health and safety management systems, practices, expertise and leadership as well as workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, awards manager, RoSPA, said: “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition.

“Greene King Brewing and Brands has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”

It has also won a silver Management of Road Risk award for its safety work with delivery drivers and sales staff.
