Pullman helps our people to support our customers by delivering the highest standards in safety. Our priority is to safeguard the well-being of our people, our customers and the wider public through on-going health and safety education at every level of the business.
Confirming that health and safety is firmly at the top of its agenda, Pullman has received its SAFEContractor accreditation, a third party scheme that assesses a company's health and safety practices. This accreditation independently verifies that Pullman's safety policies and procedures are among the best in the industry.
Four Pullman repair centres have become the first in the UK to gain coveted IRTE (Institute of Road Transport Engineers) Workshop Accreditation status in Huntingdon, Livingston, Stoke and Lea Green (St Helens).
Pullman is committed to preventing all work-related injuries and illnesses using the DuPont ‘zero tolerance’ principle. To deliver this commitment, Pullman operates a common framework to bring together all aspects of our Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) approach, supported by a set of ‘Key Health & Safety Principles’ with minimum safety standards. The framework underpinning Pullman’s SHE culture is an ongoing programme of ambitious objectives:
Pullman invests heavily in training, sets demanding performance targets, and measures progress to ensure continuous improvement in SHE performance. The benefit of this approach has been to position Pullman as employers of choice for the changing world of work, to reduce both insured and uninsured costs, and to demonstrate industry-leading SHE standards to our customers and investors.
For example, our award winning SHELA campaign has been spreading the SHE message since 2005. SHELA (Safety Health and Environment Learning Aid) is one of the most easily instantly recognisable symbols of our safety culture across the whole business.
