Emergency services were called to our site at approximately 12pm on Thursday 9th February after four production colleagues showed symptoms of becoming unwell and in need of medical assistance. We were immediately concerned for the safety of not only the four colleagues involved, but for everyone working on site and worked alongside the emergency services to carry out an investigation.
After medical attention of the four colleagues involved they were discharged at site without requiring any further treatment.
The investigation carried out by the emergency services concluded that there was no sign of anything on site that could have caused any symptoms suffered by our colleagues and as a result we were given clearance that we could resume normal production.
Richard Anderson, Managing Director, said “The welfare of our colleagues today, and every day, is our primary focus and whilst we have incurred a significant disruption to production as a result of these precautionary actions this reflects our commitment to ensuring there was no risk to our colleagues.”
