Health, Safety & Environment
Polypipe meets, and strives to exceed, the changing regulations governing our operations and products.
The health and safety of employees is an integral part of Polypipe's business activities. Health and Safety is a responsibility and statutory duty that each and every employee and visitor to our sites must share. To enable this, it is our intent that responsibility for Health and Safety be accepted and effectively carried out at all levels within our organisation.
At Polypipe we consider the positive management of the potential environmental impact of our activities as an integral part of our business undertaking. It is our intent to minimise the lasting impact of our operations on the environment and to take account of sustainability in our product design and applications. The manufacture of these products consumes both raw materials and energy and Polypipe therefore has introduced proactive sustainability policies to manage both their usage and environmental impacts.

Major UK plastic piping systems manufacturer Polypipe has had its approach to occupational safety and health recognised in an awards scheme run by the safety charity, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) winning the Gold award in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2015.
Polypipe’s Head of HSE, Kris Ramsey, said: “We are very proud that once again the long term hard work of the Polypipe Safety Team and our employees in continually improving health and safety standards has been recognised by RoSPA in awarding us a further Gold Achievement Award. Most importantly, by continuing to work together to reduce the potential for accidents, year on year, the real winners are our employees.”
