We are proud to deliver services that improve the quality of life for millions of people every day. Quality of life starts with looking after the health and safety of all our colleagues.

We have a simple vision: that our people return home safe and healthy every day.

We believe that accidents are preventable and have committed to embracing a zero harm mindset. We believe the best way to do this is by creating a culture of safety where injuries and ill health are avoided. There are many ways in which we do this:

Embedding health and safety

Our philosophy is to design health and safety into all we do, including how we recruit people, how we buy products, how we sell services and how we operate our business.

Talking about health and safety

We make safety part of our everyday conversations with our teams. We highlight safety at the start of every single company meeting or gathering. There are safety moments happening every day, everywhere. We hold ourselves accountable and every employee is required to understand, acknowledge and sign their health and safety responsibilities.

Looking for opportunities to improve health and safety

We invest the time and resources to understand the hazards and risks that we face in our work and we prioritise our resources on managing the biggest risks first.  We walk the floor and take the time to talk about improving health and safety at the point of work. We commit to continually improving our safety performance, which means that everyone is committed to a common plan of action.

Modelling health and safety 

Through our 3 Checks for Safety and our safety culture programme, we know good behaviours needs to be learned, practiced, tested, encouraged and shared. Have a Safe Day is the symbol of Sodexo’s health and safety culture, and reflects our commitment that the health and safety of our employees, clients and consumers is our top priority. 

Recognising excellence

We call out and recognise good health and safety practices and innovations through our Have a Safe Day and Spirit of Sodexo award programmes.

In short, we continually strive to create safer and healthier working environments for our people, our clients and our consumers.
