In a strong safety culture, everyone feels responsible for safety, and pursues it on a daily basis.

In the IOSH Food and Drink Industries Group we are passionate about improving safety standards across our industry and we are looking to leading organizations to share their experiences with others who want to change their own safety culture.

In the latest of our culture change workshops, we invite representatives from other food and drink companies to join the team from Jordans Dorset Ryvita, to learn how they brought their health, safety and wellbeing vision and mission to life, creating a strong safety culture across their whole organization.
