Health and Safety
Monaghan Mushrooms are committed to safeguarding the safety, health and welfare of our employees, visitors and contractors by providing and maintaining a safe and healthy workplace.
This is accomplished through a proactive, measurable and constructive safety management programme ensuring that employees/ contractors are provided with safe access/egress, safe systems of work, safe plant and equipment and a safe and competent workforce as required by legislation and best industrial practice. We strive to prevent accidents and cases of work related ill-health and provide adequate control of health and safety risks arising from our work activities. To support this we provide competent leadership and training for every employee.
Testimony to the dedication and total commitment of our employees, Monaghan Mushrooms, have been awarded both RoSPA and NISO awards. These awards are aimed at recognising and celebrating Occupational Health and Safety achievements.
In July 2015, Monaghan Mushrooms were presented with two RoSPA Silver Awards for both the Langford and Whitley sites in England. This follows a successful 2014, where we received two RoSPA Awards; a Gold RoSPA for the Fenton Barns site in Scotland and a Silver RoSPA Award for the Langford Site in England.
The RoSPA Awards Scheme recognises commitment to accident prevention and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. Awards are presented to companies who have achieved a high level of performance underpinned by good management systems which are delivering consistent improvement and are working towards a level of excellence in health and safety.
The NISO Award is an external recognition of the All Ireland Safety Award. Monaghan Mushrooms were “Highly Commended” for their approach to occupational health and safety and demonstrating that a positive and proactive culture of safety management exists within the business.
Monaghan Mushrooms continues to improve health and safety performance throughout the group by motivating employees and promoting a culture of excellence in workplace health and safety.
