Vectura considers health and safety to be a priority in its workplaces. We have an established Health and Safety Committee that reviews health and safety standards within the organisation. The Committee continually monitors and reviews health and safety practices to ensure that health and safety management procedures are robust and in line with industry best practice. Annual updates are provided to the Board for review and additional update reports are provided as required. Trevor Phillips is the Board member to whom responsibility for health and safety issues has been delegated.
Specialist ongoing training is provided to those individuals who are responsible for health and safety across the organisation. General health and safety training is delivered to all staff via in-house training sessions provided by our Health and Safety Manager and by e-learning courses.
The Group has an excellent safety record and there have been no major incidents or accidents to report to the Health and Safety Executive in the United Kingdom or to the equivalent bodies in Germany, Switzerland or France during the period (2015/16: none).
