Barratt Developments PLC recognises that our people are key to our success and, as a result, the health and wellbeing of our employees is firmly embedded into our company culture.
We have engaged with an Occupational Health Provider to provide medical surveillance for our safety critical workforce and to work with us to continue to provide advice on further steps we can take.
As part of our current Strategy we have worked with the British Heart Foundation, Prostate Cancer UK, Diabetes UK and the Stroke Association in raising awareness of these health issues to all workers by providing posters, briefings and information leaflets. We will be continuing with working closely with organisations such as these in 2014 to raise awareness of health issues.
We have in addition raised awareness of the prevention of respiratory conditions including asthma and silicon dust.
We will be launching an Occupational Health briefing pack in early 2014 so that information on health risks will be available on all our developments.
