Effective Health and Safety management continues to be vital to Dignity and a key priority across all our operations.

Keeping people safe

Safety in the workplace remains a priority, helping to protect the people who work at, and visit, our premises. Working in a safe environment allows us to focus on delivering excellent service to our clients, while also supporting employee engagement  and retention.

Dignity has a full-time Head of Health and Safety and a team of eight regional Health and Safety Officers providing support services to our branches, crematoria, manufacturing site and head office locations.

The team works hard to minimise incidents and improve our safety culture and behaviours.  We monitor health and safety through quarterly analysis, inspection of premises, surveillance and regular reports to the Board.

We also proactively identify areas requiring action with the intention of further risk reduction across the business.
