Being Safe

Our award-winning, cutting-edge e-learning programmes in HSE, food safety and environmental management, combined with our HSE cultural programme, drives positive safety behaviours in all our people. Health, safety and welfare means more to Eurest than written processes and procedures.

As the old saying goes, “Fine words butter no parsnips.” But international standard accreditations in every outlet, achieved on the back of cutting-edge e-learning programmes, most certainly do.

We believe in a strong culture of safety leadership – the sort of leadership that saw the London Olympics as the first Olympics ever to achieve zero fatalities during its construction and operation.

Our three-tier approach to H&S starts with a systematic approach to process engineering; continues with the documentation of H&S systems and processes that are embedded in the business, with an ongoing programme of auditing; with the ultimate aim of achieving a better culture of health and safety through continuously improving behaviours, at every level of the organization.

Our carefully designed policies and procedures are clearly communicated and acted on, to ensure the services we operate are not just correct, but legally compliant and best in class.

Every single one of our 5,000+ UK sites is fully accredited to ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and OHSAS 18001 (Health & Safety).

It may not be sexy but our comprehensive audit programme, developing systems and ensuring high compliance levels and positive behaviours are just "the way we do things around here."

Being Safe - Our Safety Culture


The fact that HSE is our number one priority provides confidence and comfort to you that the integrity of our food, provenance and safety and welfare of our people and customers is paramount.

Because our approach to health and safety is a cultural one – based on continuous improvement of people’s behaviours rather than just a set of written instructions – you will know that all of our people are fully committed to the positive results of their actions, rather than just paying lip-service to a book of words.

And having every one of our UK outlets fully ISO compliant in H&S, quality and environmental standards proves our actions are louder than any of those words.

And with the emphasis for all businesses (including yours, no doubt) increasingly being given to reducing environmental impacts, you should be further reassured that you are working with an organisation that is totally committed to cutting its own carbon footprint – whether that is through reduced food miles, preventing pollution, managing waste or conserving energy – not to mention our extensive recycling and re-use programme.
