HEALTH & SAFETY
Safety, Health and Environment First. We do not take shortcuts. Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) is an operational priority and an ethical responsibility. We never compromise on the health and safety of our people and our clients and manage the impact that our business has on the environment responsibly. Through our Integrated Risk Management System, we have complete confidence in our ability to follow every protocol – and institute carefully designed policies and procedures designed to ensure the health and safety of our people and communities and our environment is always looked after.
Health and Safety is our number one priority. In fact, it’s a value that goes to the very core of who we are, what we do and how we do it!
It is our belief that every employee has a moral obligation to safeguard each other, our clients and customers and the environment. We aspire to operate a safe, injury free and healthy workplace, serving food that is always safe to eat.
We also believe that commitment to safety requires a balanced approach from both our management and employees. Having said that our clients also have an important role to play in working with us to ensure a safe environment. Being a level 1 BBBEE contributor we take our responsibility to the Country’s future very seriously and it is one of the reasons we look to develop long term strategic partnerships with our clients and their employees.
Our Operating Standards and procedures are based on sound science, regulatory compliance and industry best practice, and are implemented at every unit in which we operate. In addition to this they ensure that we strive for continual improvement and drive a health and safety culture that is ingrained within the organization. These standards have set Compass apart from its competitors and have established the benchmark for the catering and services industry in South Africa.
While our operating standards across all units are aligned and comply with the requirements of OHSAS 18001 and ISO 22000, we have successfully achieved certification at a number of our units. In fact, Compass Group is the only Catering company in South Africa to have achieved ISO 22000 certification.
