“I need my staff to be involved in risk assessments and think ‘what’s going to happen if I do this and can I hurt myself or others, is it safe?’ – they do a very manual job, handling cages, packing and welding them. I can’t always be looking over my shoulder... One of the first changes we made was the attitude towards PPE, Edwin [at Moorepay] played a key part in this mindset shift.”Vas Mistry - Managing Director, Hilson Filtration Products
