Health and safety
Sword of Honour
In 2015, Nobia's production unit in Darlington was awarded the prestigious Sword of Honour health and safety prize presented by the British Safety Council. Everyone in Production, from managers to people on the shop floor, was involved, and the prize was the culmination of five years of diligent teamwork to improve the culture and working environment in the Darlington factory.
In the Nobia Sweden factory in Tidaholm, the safety work is supported and evaluated by local health and safety committees. Incidents are followed up and analysed, and new guidelines are produced where necessary to prevent fresh incidents. By constantly improving the working environment with marked routes around the factory and instructions for maintaining machinery, for example, we can tailor the relevant training.
Rixonway Kitchens Ltd received a gold medal in the RoSPA Awards 2016 for the seventh year in a row. The RoSPA award is a respected and sought-after distinction conferred on companies and organisations that have shown a commitment to preventing occupational accidents, run by the Royal Society.
In 2016, the number of workplace accidents in Nobia per million hours worked was 17. Every workplace accident is followed up and corrective action is taken.
