Our first engagement started with face-to-face worker engagement and delivered the following impacts:

  • Revision of health and safety measures in cold stores
  • Recognition by management that worker longevity was affected by length of employment off-shore and in cold stores
  • Acknowledgement ¬†by management that local cleaning contractor was negatively impacting healthy working conditions, and needed contract terms to be reviewed
  • High response rates and strong motivation from workers to remain anonymous while monitoring working conditions.
  • Revising the systems in place for maintenance and hence, ¬†resolving equipment outages which were costing the business through reduced productivity

 

We remain involved in supporting the work of certification bodies to develop robust indicators and mobile-friendly questions, produce clear assessments, and better support good working conditions in fishing . This work has also focused on meeting the needs of small supply sites where we have developed a model to protect worker anonymity even in workforces smaller than 50.
