Respecting our Environment
We all have an obligation to conserve and protect the environment and to respect the natural world. We strive to source with integrity, working with suppliers, contractors and subcontractors to improve our environmental performance.
We continue to improve our environmental performance continually in accordance with our Environmental Policy through various means such as the installation of photovoltaic panelling at our factories and developing state of the art energy efficient LED Lighting Systems and other means to reduce energy consumption in the lighting industry.
We aim to increase environmental awareness among staff and promote good environmental performance providing all staff with environmental awareness training and relevant job-specific training.
Mental Health First Aid
We have recently implemented Mental Health First Aid across the company through training with Mental Health First Aid England.
MHFA training is a key component for creating a safe, healthy workplace where the mental and physical health of employees are valued equally. Our trained Mental Health First Aiders are able to assist employees’ access all of the many types of support which is available. Mental Health First Aiders are also a point of contact should an employee, or someone they are concerned about, is experiencing a mental health issue or emotional distress. They are not therapists or psychiatrists but are able to give initial support and refer individuals to appropriate help should it be required.
In addition our Health Assured Employee Benefits Programme allows employees access to a confidential suite of wellbeing services which offers them and their families a structured way to work through physical or mental health issues and financial difficulties.
