The most important aim at Williams & Yates is to ensure that everyone goes home safely at the end of every day. To this end, we maintain the highest reasonable and practical standards of health and safety and are concerned with the welfare and well-being of all company employees or anyone else who may be affected by our working practices.
Williams & Yates recognises that a productive health and safety culture has positive benefits to the organisation and is committed to continually monitoring, and revising necessary, the health and safety policy. It also recognises that health and safety is a business function and must, therefore, continually progress and adapt to the changes.
