Safety is embedded as a core ARAMARK value.
ARAMARK has a Health and Safety Director at a Corporate level to drive strategic safety risk management throughout the business.
The company works with a safety support partner to provide advice and assistance with the implementation of risk management systems throughout the business.
The ARAMARK Health and Safety and Food Safety Policy is driven by the heads of the individual lines of business and functions throughout the organisation. This supports the implementation of the safety risk management system at all levels and reduces the risk/impact of loss/injury.
The importance of the Health and Safety and Food Safety Policy, compliance with same and its propagation throughout the business is fundamental to the way the business operates. The Senior Leadership team continually reinforces this to the individual lines of business and functional leaders and to the wider employee base.
