OSH Leadership refined at British SugarKeywords:
British Sugar is the leading supplier of sugar to the UK market, producing over 1 million tonnes each year. It employs around 1,000 employees and 1,100 contractors. Sugar production remains at the core of their operations, but using a highly integrated approach to manufacturing, they aim to transform all of their raw materials into sustainable products; from sugar to animal feed, electricity and tomatoes, at their four processing plants. Despite having a good safety record and winning recognition from RoSPA and the British Safety Council, a number of significant incidents in 2003 prompted a full scale review of the company's safety management system.
