Accolade Wines has a responsibility to ensure the health, safety and well-being of employees, contractors and visitors at its offices and facilities in the UK.
Accolade Wines provides an Occupational Health Service to all its UK based employees through an external Occupational Health provider, Shirehampton Group Practice (SGP) which provides care by 10 full time doctors. SGP is not currently SEQOHS accredited but is currently working towards the accreditation.
Accolade Wines continues to use a private health insurance provider, which is available to all employees of a certain grade and above.
Accolade Wines has excellent in-house occupational health standards for a full range of health issues (absence through to proactive health). Following a body mapping exercise of the entire staff at Accolade Park, an early reporting system for health was introduced to identify those most at risk of absence or who are feeling uncomfortable in the workplace.
The company has a health and safety committee comprised of Accolade Wines’ employees based at Accolade House (Guildford) and Accolade Park (Bristol) who meet every other month to review safety procedures and legislation in order to ensure all premises are compliant and up to our strict standards of safety. This committee ensures all staff are trained and re-trained properly throughout the year on key job skills as well as health and safety requirements.
Once a month a health and safety report is completed which reviews and tracks all accidents on site, equipment, training and qualifications of staff as well as absenteeism and sickness.
All incidents and accidents are investigated and control measures are put in place to reduce the likelihood of re-occurrence within the business.
Accolade Wines also has an Employee Assistance Programme, which includes a confidential help-line, an online health portal and face-to-face counselling.
