As an employer, RS Group LTD realises that we are responsible for keeping our employees both happy and healthy in the workplace. We realise that health and wellbeing go far beyond the traditional sense of just physical health. We realise that mental health is a very important aspect of our employees’ well-being also.
This is defined by a state of mental wellbeing where our employees can realise their full potential, are able to work productively, can deal with the normal stresses of life, and are able to fully function in their own environment.
When we look at this area we realise many people throughout the nation are regularly losing working days because of ill-health. Many of those people are losing days because of work-related illness. This is why we at RS Group Ltd realise that we need to do whatever we can to reduce workplace stress.
Going Beyond Presenteeism
We want to make sure that we minimise any sickness absence, but we are not going to compromise on the wellbeing of our workforce. One of the more prominent issues that many companies throughout the industry have to deal with is the concept that people have to go to work, even if they are already feeling ill. This concept of presenteeism is a serious issue that needs to be addressed.
We believe that a workforce which is both happy and healthy will have a tremendously positive impact on prosperity and efficiency. We believe that it is more important than ever before to look towards the health of our workforce. We want to make sure that employees at RS Group know that they are able to talk about mental health issues and indeed stress related issues, feel appreciated, and are able to thrive in our positive environment.
What We Stand For
At RS Group LTD, we believe that we are a part of creating a better world by promoting the health and wellbeing of each member of our team. We believe that we are always working towards holding ourselves to the highest possible safety standards and trying to treat each injury as preventable.
We are constantly seeking out better knowledge within our team regarding the prevention of injuries due to ill-health. We make sure that we use resources effectively, eliminate forms of waste, and try to prevent pollution. In short, at RS Group Ltd we do everything possible to ensure that we implement the best practices for the wellbeing of every person who works for us.
Health & Safety
At RS Group Ltd, we want to ensure that the health, welfare, and safety of both RS Group’s employees, our customers and everybody involved is of paramount concern. This includes all our different stakeholders and members of the general public.
We don’t just magically have a good record of safety performance or high standards of health and safety management; this is something that RS Group Ltd works very hard to achieve. This means a rigorous and disciplined approach towards safety in everything we do. This also means that we continuously strive to improve our health and safety management in a number of different ways.
A Safe Culture
At RS Group Ltd, we promote a culture that allows our workers to operate with, “Safety in Mind”. We do not expect anyone to undertake unsafe work. If a staff member refuses to work because it is unsafe, they have our personal support in doing so.
We make sure that we do not accept unsafe conditions for anyone. There is no fear of retribution when RS Group staff members speak out about potential concerns. They are encouraged to voice their problems and opinions openly and fairly.
Safety in Mind
RS Group Ltd understands that accidents are going to happen anywhere humans work. However, we believe that the level of risk should be as low as reasonably practicable. This means that we develop safe methods of work and risk assessments to reduce all potential damage to the environment and property by complying with all the relevant industry and legislation standards. Because our workspace is continuously changing, we believe that we also need to continue to work very hard towards improvement in occupational health and safety.
RS Group Ltd ensures that we challenge both our company and our managers with our health and safety objectives. We then monitor our objectives against health and safety objections elsewhere. We do not believe that we should promote business objectives above health and safety objectives. Not only are we going to work towards safeguarding all involved parties, we also expect the same from any stakeholder that we are going to work with at any given time.
At RS Group Ltd, we know that we cannot realize health and safety standards without the support of our entire network. We know that each of us has a responsibility to work towards promoting health and safety, regardless of which site we work at or any other elements that prove beyond our control. Health and safety is part of our philosophy and has helped us protect our people for the past three generations. We are proud to report that we have not had any RIDDORS in the company for over 10 consecutive years.
