APS Group sites are responsible for their own health, safety and environmental strategy. An approach that would work for one site would not necessarily work for another due to the processes and product areas within each site. When APS Teeside carried out an audit on their site, they were surprised to find that they were using more hazardous products than they were aware of in the everyday running of their business.
Although APS uses 20-30 substances to fertilise their tomatoes, this did not take in to consideration the 300+ oils, greases and small ancillary products that they were also using on a day to day basis. Due to ongoing changes in legislation, APS recognised that they needed a solution that would help them to manage and update all of their COSHH assessments to ensure they were compliant with legislation.
