Risk Assessments

Grotech Production staff are required to undertake a risk assessment before unloading any vehicle. If this assessment concludes that it is unsafe to proceed with the unloading then the staff member concerned is required to refuse to accept the delivery.  Any attempt to pressurise the staff to contravene this requirement will be regarded as an unsafe act and reported accordingly.

Returnable Packaging

Returnable packaging will only be accepted as such if agreed in advance and the arrangements for charging or collection and reconciliation established in writing and in English.
