Safety First


Safety is critically important at Compass Group.
We place it first in everything we do.

Our Health, Safety, Environment and Quality policies are unequalled in the catering and support services industry and we take the utmost care to reduce the risk of incidents and injuries in the working environment, and to make sure that we maintain the highest standards of food hygiene and safety.

In recognition that workplace safety is more than just rules and regulations, Compass Group has also worked hard to instil a positive safety culture – which is the values, attitudes and behaviours towards safety shared by people in a workplace. Every individual at Compass Group takes personal accountability for safety practices within their own area of responsibility and safety is the first thought before undertaking any task. Our safety standards are enshrined in our Food Safety and our Health and Safety handbooks which provide clear guidance and learning for all our employees to understand and apply our safe operational standards. Our Fatal Risk and Critical Control program also looks at parts of work that has the potential for very serious consequences.

To improve Compass Group’s safety culture, we have and continue to review safety research, lessons learnt from incidents in our industry and consult across our global network to develop a framework that defines the critical behaviours that characterise a strong safety culture.

Our safety behaviours are underpinned by our ‘See Care Share’ philosophy which reminds our people of the reasons why it is important to stay safe: that their family, friends, colleagues and community rely on them. Our employees are empowered to identify hazard or potential safety concerns, take action to remove them and fix the situation and share with colleagues to ensure we can all learn from the findings.
