Occupational Health & Safety

Optimising business and employee performance.

Occupational Health & Safety can not only help you meet business requirements and best practice guidelines, but also optimise your business and staff performance. It’s a cost-effective technique that has proven results.

By using compliance audits and behavioural study programmes, Occupational Health & Safety can assess your current state of safety performance and workforce wellbeing to implement changes that will improve your organisation and optimise its performance.

Compliance audits have the potential to reduce accidents and ill health, which not only minimises the risk of costs and lost time but also improves the morale of your staff. With the addition of a behavioural study, which identifies unproductive and unsafe behaviours and sets out ideas for positive behaviour modification, Occupational Health & Safety can be highly effective in promoting health, safety and productivity optimisation.

Operational Excellence

Establishing long-term operational improvement.

The continuous improvement and optimisation of your business is achieved by implementing a model of improvement aimed at establishing a long-term change in the organisational culture of your business. This model is known as Operational Excellence.

It concerns every individual, regardless of level, within your company understanding the end goals of your optimisation and recognising the effective flow that works towards achieving them. When this is so, the flow of progress is continuously maintained without the involvement of management.

We help to implement management and engineering excellence in order to achieve Operational Excellence for your organisation, aiding to emphasise the value of problem-solving and teamwork across the leadership to inspire employees and continually improve the existing processes and activities of the business.

Continuous Improvement

Long-term streamlining and optimisation.

The ongoing improvement of your products, processes and services is an essential way of giving your business competitive advantage whilst ensuring that your business remains agile and responsive in the face of industry change.

Effective Continuous Improvement requires a structured approach. We firstly identify opportunities for change. We then plan how this change can be achieved in constant, incremental stages. The plan is then executed, and we finally conduct a review. If the change was successful it will be implemented and continued on a larger scale. We also emphasise the involvement of employees, teamwork, and the streamlining and systemisation of processes.

The Continuous Improvement we design for your business will be aligned to your business objectives and strategy and may also enable health and safety and OpenX improvements.

Integrated Food Projects have partnered with Kettleby Foods on a number of high-profile multi-million pound capital projects since 2003/4, helping the business to develop and grow. Throughout that time they have provided cost-effective and efficient solutions on development projects both at our existing ready meals production facility and also in creating a new satellite facility. The projects at our existing facility were managed without impact on our ability to service our own clients, and all projects have been delivered within budget, in a timely fashion and to the requisite standards of safety and quality. Their team work ethos and professional approach ensure successful projects and I would utilise Integrated Food Projects in the future without hesitation.

I have worked with Integrated Food Projects on many capital expenditure projects since 2004, the latest being the development of the new plot of land adjacent to our main site. They successfully employed a project delivery process to ensure the integration of a leased modular building solution with the development of the site infrastructure to improve logistics and Health and Safety. Their staff are always positive and enthusiastic and have fostered a team-work approach ensuring another successful project delivered. I look forward to working with them again in the near future.
