Health and Safety
Special Melted Products will do everything in power to protect the health, safety and welfare of our employees and any other person that interacts with our activities. The company has overall responsibility for ensuring that we maintain the highest standards of health and safety at all times.
However, we rely on all employees, subcontractors, and visitors to play their part in effectively implementing our health and safety policy and sharing in our commitment to creating a Zero Harm Culture. It is everyone’s shared responsibility.
Safety is our highest priority. Everything else comes after that.
We are committed to creating a Zero Harm Culture. We are strong believers that one injury is one too many – the goal is always zero.
At Special Melted Products we are constantly working to improve the Health & Safety measures for all our people and promote overall wellbeing. It is the shared responsibility of all employees to actively participate in all aspects of the safety program and to maintain the highest level of safety at all times.
Minimising our environmental impact is one of our core values.
We will achieve this by assessing and improving our performance in strategic areas, with targets including reducing our energy consumption per tonne of product and re-using 100% of discarded product produced back into our production process.
Our ISO 14001 certified environmental management system makes sure we have robust systems and procedures in place to meet all our legal duties, as well as driving continual improvement.
This policy supports our commitment to limiting the risk of modern slavery occurring within our own business or infiltrating our supply chains or any other business relationship.
The policy applies to all persons working for or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees, directors, officers, agency workers, contractors, consultants and any other third-party representative.
We expect all who have or seek to have a business relationship with the company to familiarise themselves with this policy and to act at all times in a way that is consistent with its values.
We will only do business with organisations who fully comply with this policy.
The aim of this procedure is to encourage you to raise any genuine concerns you might have about wrongdoings within the company without fear of reprisal, to provide you with guidance on how to raise those concerns and to enable us to investigate such concerns and deal with them appropriately.
You should not use this procedure for complaints relating to your own circumstances, such as the way you have been treated at work. In those cases, you should use the grievance procedure. This procedure is for making a disclosure of wrongdoing or malpractice where you reasonably believe that disclosure is in the public interest.
