Nick Turnbull, UK HSES&S Manager at AkzoNobel, commented: “Health and safety is an integral part of how we operate. As a manufacturing company, this is one of our core values so that we have effective and suitable controls in place for our own employees and contractors to manage health and safety risks across our value chain.”
Many of our sites used paper-based systems or excel documents to manage our sub-contractors, which can be difficult to access and collaborate when needed, not to mention difficult to maintain accuracy. Following a standard ISO audit and in conversations held with other site HSE business partners, we agreed this was a shared challenge across our sites. AkzoNobel follow a lean manufacturing methodology, focusing on minimising waste while simultaneously maximising productivity. An integrated management system for our contractor management was the best way to help achieve this.
