Nampak complies with occupational health and safety legislation and regulations in all jurisdictions in which we operate. A safe working environment is a core standard required by the group.

The Nampak Group Risk Control Standards cover facilities in Africa and the United Kingdom and Ireland. Willis SA Limited, Nampak’s insurance and risk management partner, provides assurance on the implementation of the standards, which includes annual visit by Willis to each operation. Divisions also conduct their own self-audits of the risk control standards which are then subject to a peer audit by Nampak’s risk control practitioners.

The United Kingdom facilities have implemented a tailored health and safety audit system to comply with their insurance requirements. In addition to the risk control standards, 15 operations are certified for OSHAS 18 001.

Elsewhere in Africa, the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency in Nigeria requires health, safety and environmental audits of Nampak on a biannual basis. Accredited consultants Fatmahal Environmental Services Limited also perform monthly checks.
