Firm in good health again

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Business Update -

A frozen fruit and veg­etable com­pany in Char­ing has re­ceived an award for health and safety for the sec­ond year in a row.

Ardo UK was pre­sented with The Royal So­ci­ety for the Pre­ven­tion of Ac­ci­dents’ (RoSPA) Gold Award for Oc­cu­pa­tional Health and Safety, given to com­pa­nies that demon­strate ex­cel­lent man­age­ment sys­tems, a rig­or­ous ap­proach to oc­cu­pa­tional health and below av­er­age – and re­duc­ing – ac­ci­dent rates.

Jim Ever­est, Ardo UK op­er­a­tions direc­tor, said: “To achieve a gold award two years run­ning shows how every­one at Ardo UK re­ally em­braces a strong health and safety cul­ture in their dayto-day ac­tiv­i­ties.

“We are com­mit­ted to our health and safety obli­ga­tions and set our­selves the high­est stan­dards pos­si­ble. As re­spon­si­ble em­ploy­ers we have chal­lenged our­selves to re­duce ac­ci­dents in the work­place year on year through in­vest­ment in train­ing, safer work­ing con­di­tions and pro­tec­tive cloth­ing.”
