Our customers: By supplying a complete range of sustainable cleaning products we help protect cleaning and facility management staff from the potentially harmful effect of long-term exposure to cleaning chemicals.
Our community: From our Head Office to each corner of the UK covered by our branch network we are active in our local communities. From individual fundraising to branch fundraising and charitable work we are very proud of the social value that we give back. Last year, we raised over £29k for a number of fantastic charities including Mind. Our national Charity of the Year is Emmaus, who support people who have experienced homelessness by providing them with a home and meaningful work in a community setting. They currently support more than 750 formerly homeless people, by providing them with a home for as long as they need it and meaningful work in their social enterprises. They are passionate people working tirelessly to end homelessness and with an estimated 4,134 rough sleepers in England, they simply don’t have enough rooms to help everyone. We are proud to partner with Emmaus.
Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. We are constantly searching for the market’s most innovative products and solutions. If they pass our strenuous Innovation Panel which is made up of a team of very passionate experts from within BCHS by demonstrating they have real innovative qualities and features, we then feature them in our market-leading publication Innov8 which we publish on a quarterly basis.
Many of the products we have featured in Innov8 have been an award or multi award-winning products and we pride ourselves with being the first supplier to take them to the market and showcase them to our customers.
Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene is committed to the health, safety and welfare of its employees as its first priority. A risk assessment has been conducted in accordance with Government guidance on working safely during COVID-19, which was issued on 11th May 2020.
The risk assessment has been used to identify potential risks related to exposure to, catching and spreading COVID-19 and has identified the measures needed to reduce risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level by taking preventative measures, in order of priority. The risk assessment recommendations have been shared with our employees.
Measures in Use to Reduce Risk:
- - Increasing the frequency of handwashing and surface cleaning in the workplace
- - Enabling our employees to work from home where possible
- - Taking all reasonable steps to maintain a 2 metre distance in the workplace
- - Keeping the activity time involved in tasks as short as possible
- - Using back-to-back or side-to-side working (rather than face-to-face) whenever possible
- - Reducing the number of people each person has contact with by using ‘fixed teams or partnering’ (so each person works with only a few others)
- - Finally, where people must work face-to-face for a sustained period with more than a small group of fixed partners, then we have assessed whether the activity can safely go ahead. In such circumstances, where required, additional Personal Protective Equipment, for instance face coverings have been made available
Particular regard has been given to employees who are especially vulnerable to COVID-19 and appropriate measures have been taken to minimize their personal risk, including home working and reassignment to tasks and activities that reduce that personal risk to the lowest reasonably practical level.
Particular regard has also been given to understanding the circumstances of those with protected characteristics and any measures or adjustments that may been needed to address a different degree of risk or alternative measures that may be required under the Equality Act 2010.
The Government guidance related specifically to working safely in Warehouses, Offices & Contact Centres, Vehicles and Retail Branches has been incorporated into the risk assessment.
Furthermore, the risk assessment has taken account of Government guidance on travelling to and from work, meetings in the workplace and the presence of visitors and contractors at Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene locations.
The risk assessment that has been carried out will be kept under review and revisited periodically, or where Government guidance is amended or updated.
