Health & Safety

The malting industry is proud of the fact that information supplied by the Health and Safety Executive demonstrates that they have a better than average record in respect of accidents at work.

As a process industry there are many areas of activity where there is an opportunity for accidents.  Each company has staff dedicated to ensuring that company policies are adhered to and these experts come together to compare statistical information on accidents and incidents and to share their best practice.

How the Health & Safety Forum tackle the HSE's top 5 injuries in the workplace can be viewed here.

Guidance notes, prepared by the Health and Safety Forum, are available to member companies here and to the public here.

More recently the scope of the Forum has expanded to include environmental issues and the outcome of this inclusion has resulted in the production of the industry's first Environmental Strategy Document.

Maltsters have recently pledged their support to the health and safety improvement objectives set out in FDMF’s Common strategy document 2015 - 2020.
