Health, Safety and Environment Policy
Our health, safety & environment (HSE) policies are central to everything we do at Fraikin and are co-ordinated by our own dedicated HSE Manager, who ensures compliance across all company facilities – from our head office and branch network through to used vehicle sales sites and even our mobile service vans.
We are often asked to include details of our HSE policy as part of tenders for new contracts. Here is a summary of our policy:
