MGF Reaches Key Health and Safety Milestone

MGF’s Safety, Health, Environment and Quality Team (SHEQ) are delighted to report that the business has just surpassed the milestone of 2 years worked since their last recorded reportable accident.

Back in early 2019, MGF launched its “Think Safe, Work Safe, Home Safe” and “Thumbs up to Stay Safe” initiatives throughout its nationwide network of depots. These were implemented to enhance the health, safety, and wellbeing of our employees and to empower everyone to be more safety conscious.

The Think Safe initiative was implemented to drive business improvements and to ensure both our employees and customers who use our equipment go home safe and healthy every day. The Thumbs Up to Stay Safe campaign is aimed at preventing accidents involving Forklift Trucks and HGV’s by ensuring drivers and pedestrians are fully aware of vehicle movements via simple, visual communication.

Eddie Prendergast (SHEQ Manager) commented:

“After achieving the 1M hours worked RIDDOR free in December 2021 we instilled the belief that we had the capability to go on reaching more milestones and achieving exemplary health and safety records.

“Therefore, it is extremely pleasing, both personally and on behalf of MGF, to have reached the fantastic milestone that is 2 years and over 1.5 million hours RIDDOR free.

“We will continue to adhere to our Think Safe, Work Safe, Home Safe philosophy and look forward to the achievements that follow.”
