Health & Safety

The Widdowson Group has no higher priority than the health and safety of its workforce and customers.  We will not handle, use, transport or dispose of any product unless we can do it safely.

It’s a way of life for us, and we extend that to everyone who comes to our sites – not just employees and contractors, but customers and other visitors also. Just one accident or injury is one too many. Our target is zero. Day in, day out, we focus on safety performance and the elimination of risks. 

Our drivers are professionally trained by our in-house qualified trainers and are constantly re-assessed to ensure that standards are maintained.  We have embraced the European Union's stance on Driver CPC.
