Health and safety is at the heart of Johnson Matthey’s business. The company’s recent focus has been on raising employees’ awareness and bringing them on a journey towards a world class health and safety culture. After a long and competitive tender process, which included an in-depth audit of AM Services Group’s management systems, policies and capabilities, the company was awarded the contract to provide security and cleaning services across the extensive site.
The 24/7 security service includes access control for all employees, visitors, contractors and deliveries as well as maintaining high vigilance through access control and CCTV systems. The cleaning team must ensure the highest standards in all the high footfall areas across the site, service the control rooms and washrooms, and manage the laundry and locker room services.
The nature of the work carried out by Johnson Matthey means that the site is vulnerable to high level security risk. AM Services Group has the experience and expertise to ensure that its security teams are trained and equipped with the latest knowledge and information to combat the anti-terrorism threat. Johnson Matthey can also rest assured that our staff are trained to the highest standards and that we have the required level of experience and expertise to work with Top Tier COMAH sites.
We work in partnership with Johnson Matthey on continuous improvement initiatives to strengthen the commitment to health and safety at an individual level; we deliver our services to the highest levels of competence and compliance; we carry out detailed risk assessments; and we and ensure that all materials and equipment, such as cleaning products and equipment, mobile phones and technology, and personal protective equipment (PPE) meets site specific health and safety requirements.
