Putting safety first
09 Jun 2017
Safety Days have been held across a number of sites in the Vita Group family, including Vita Liquid Polymers.
VLP held its day on 23 June and focused on topics proposed by the SHE department and employees; these had a strong emphasis on information and general awareness. It included practical sessions for hazardous chemical usage including PPE, plus HGV and FLT facts. There were instructive sessions on bio-hazards, stress awareness and a BATAK machine. Most sessions included a high degree of teamwork and allowed VLP employees to take part alongside people they don't routinely work with.

Caligen Foam held a Safety Day on 30 June. There were plenty of fun activities concerning all aspects of health & safety, including healthy eating, fitness and agility.
Kay-Metzler EPS in Essex held its Safety Day in August. Activities included a thumbless chal-lenge, maze construction and building a catapult while participants only had use of one arm. People were divided into teams, which allowed them to get to know colleagues better.
Primafoam's Safety Day included manual handling, nutrition, a Rodeo bull (to improve core stability!), hazard spotting and blood pressure checks.
A real mix of activites to help us reach our Vita Towards Zero of no accidents!
