Health and safety can be difficult to maintain in the pharmaceutical industry due to the levels of control that should be in place and with employees legally obliged to maintain workplace safety standards including when working in hazardous environments.

HEALTH & SAFETY / TRAINING
Some of the most common issues that we identify are the lack of attention to clearing up spillages, maintaining a tidy work area, hand hygiene, wearing a laboratory coat, wearing personal protective equipment including safety glasses, eating in the laboratory, checks on equipment and glassware being inadequate, long hair not being tied back and risk assessments not being carried out daily.
All of these can easily be addressed by changes in culture and this is achieved with staff training, backed up with regular, evidenced audits. Near Miss reporting is also a useful tool in this environment as it can be used as a learning platform for the business to make simple, identified changes to working practices to improve safety.
With audits carried out by BHP Group even the most problematic environments can be monitored safely.
