The safety of our colleagues, our clients and our customers will always be Sodexo’s number one priority.
We know that the UK and Ireland region’s accident rate has improved significantly over the last two years, but unfortunately welcoming the new normal has seen an influx of accidents return to the business.
As things continue to change, we all need to be flexible as things continue to develop, but let’s be clear, new ways of working do not mean that Sodexo’s 3 Checks for Safety no longer apply
It is everyone’s responsibility to follow these three simple checks to not only keep you safe, but also those around you. The three checks remain the same and must be followed before you carry out any work-related task.
A reminder of Sodexo’s 3 Checks for Safety:
Do you know how to do the job?
Do you have the right equipment?
Is your environment safe?
Please don’t forget that if the answer is no to any of these, then you should share your concern with your line manager to find a resolution. Everyone is entitled to stop working without consequence if you think what you are doing is not safe and one of the three checks is not met.
With our central offices re-opening, client sites rising again and many people returning to school and work after the holiday season, now is the perfect time to remind ourselves of the classic 3 Checks for Safety, as well as some more recently introduced, yet crucial, safe ways of working.
Rise to the challenge of working in the new normal by completing the mandatory Covid-19 induction – this applies to all Sodexo colleagues. Please speak to your line manager for more information.
If you have any questions about the 3 Checks for Safety, please speak to your line manager or H&S lead in the first instance. For any additional support, you can contact the Service Operations HSEQ team via email.
